I guess I understand why government takes a laissez-faire policy on reproductive rights because any intervention at all could be construed as social Darwinism. Taken to the extreme you have the richest and smartest of society controlling who gets to reproduce. Then again, there are some serious religious implications as well. Many sects shudder at the idea of letting the consenting couple decide not to have children. Can you imagine making the decision for someone else?

Personally, I don't know where I draw the line because as a middle class citizen who's always taken care of my own family, it's easy for me to say that:
1. Anyone that wants to reproduce should have a stable income and a history of the same.
2. Pass a basic skills knowledge test.
3. Take and pass a parenting class.
4. Pass a mental health exam.

I know, it's so 1941. How do you possibly enforce this? Should you?

I agree that this sounds like some severe mental illnesses going on.

Not sure which is worse, This or the story from yesterday of the guy in Cali stomping and beating a toddler to death. This is a cruel world for children.

It's news stories like this that make me want to go home and hug my daughter real tight.

This sort of behaviour makes me support the idea, in cases such as this, for extreme capital punishment. I am talking in the mideval sense here. An eye for a ****ing eye here.

Do not pass go. Guilty parties shall be terminated in like fashion. Accomplices shall be castrated, spade, or neutered in the manner of deplorable animal behaviour they exhibit. Hell, don't even sterilize the knife.
Wait the mother said she thinks they starved to death. Let's not jump to conclusions! Yeah RIGGGHT. I can remember when I was a kid.... I ATE EVERYTHING AND WAS ALWAYS HUNGRY, and came out of my f-ing room all the time because curiosity provoked me to. . Wack job. Another one of those poster children I see every day for sterilization. This woman should be brought to a small island with very little food and left there, be told they will come back to check and then no one should ever come back!

Sick... I usually tune into this page for a good chuckle. Nothing funny happening in this thread. All I can say is these 2 deserve to hang or be shot. The end.

Damn I should never have read that. I have twins. Just can't imagine.
The parents had to have mental problems.

Ahh.... if it were only possible to sterilise people at birth, then reverse the process after you passed the tests and deemed yourself worth of bearing children.
