    i think we should put people who are unable to have children on birth control, there sterility might be genetic, and we don't want it passed on to future generations

    Depends what they have, if they could safely use birth control, etc. I don't think people with severe genetic diseases that are likely to be passed on should be reproducing.
    And you think these decisions should be made by others?

    No. The logistics of mandating this would be nightmarish.



    Possibly. Depends how severe the abuse was, how long ago, if they've shown remorse or taken any action to correct it, etc.



    No. This is thinly-veiled racism.



    No. That's just not a problem in this country.



    What kind of test?



    No. The government shouldn't be in the business of deciding at what age people are allowed to have kids.



    In most circumstances, I would agree. There were a couple on your list that I'm on the fence about though.

    She has let her medicaid lapse so the bills for her 3rd child were not covered. This child was born at 24 weeks and spent 4 months in the neonatal ICU.
    Planned Parenthood has a sliding scale for people like her. She ought to look into it.

    Liblady, what, exactly, has Bristol Palin done, apart from having been born with the last name "Palin" of course, that would warrant mandated birth control?
    Having the 1st name "Bristol". That name sucks, and if she takes after her mom chances are she'll end up naming her next kid something even suckier. So for the poor little bastard's sake, I have agree with liblady.

    WTF for? Are you being serious in your above statement?

    As a person who had infertility issues for years, I was able to conceive without medical assistance only after the adoption of my son.

    If someone is unable to conceive, why would you put them on birth control? Pardon my ignorance, but I really am not sure of your logic OR even if you are being serious.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    In response to your last option, violation of human rights is when poor or diseased or drug addict brings in an innocent child into this world THAT is what violation of human rights is

    If other people pay for your existence, they have a right to have some say in what you do-including preventing you from engaging in activities that cause them to have to fork over more money.

    this isn't about freedom--if people are worried about freedom they would oppose the government forcing some people to pay for the existence of the irresponsible before we ever get to the freedom of freeloaders to breed like rabbits on the coin of others

    Yeah I agree. We need to neuter her younger sister too before she gets preggo by A-rod.
