Judge orders couple to stop having children

While it’s certainly a controversial decision, I applaud the brave Judge for handing down this verdict. The simple fact is, you need to take tests and get a license to drive a car. In the state of New York, you even need a license to use a clothesline outdoors! But any old !@#$%^* can have a baby. Surely bringing a new human being into the world is infinitely more serious than these former cases. Why then is this most paramount activity left unregulated? I realize it is no simple matter and some solutions can be worse than the ailment, but surely there is something that can be done to prevent the thousands of unwanted and hence neglected children in the world. What do you think?

  1. Although on the level of recognizing the seriousness of having and caring for a child, I understand what you’re saying. But let’s face it, this borders on eugenics and is state control of the womb. How long before so-called “undesirables” are not permitted to have children and/or are sterilized? How long before racial descrimination and classism impact these decisions? How slippery is this slope? By the way, your link is broken this time I went to it.

  2. While I agree it could certainly end up being a slippery slope, I feel that is not an excuse to completely ignore this important issue. The question is, considering the number of children that have been wrongfully taken away from parents by the ministry of children, does that mean that this arm of the government should be abolished? Obviously not. So the only difference between that and what I am advocating can be summarized by the old adage: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. And I think that was what the judge had in mind when the decision was handed down.
