Ok i read 60% of the arguements, and here's my take on it...


The common thing i kept reading over and over again, was that people would find a way around it, etc etc...


Here's the solution to it.

MANDATORY BIRTH CONTROL.


I don't care if your catholic or mormon or athiest...

You will have the shot. (or surgery or whatever)

When you successfully apply and are granted the license, the shots cease, and you are welcome to make a baby.

If a child is made without a license, ie someone didn't take their shot, pill, or whatever, they will be placed in jail, and the baby given for adoption to a family that has applied for a parental license.

There are more details to be worked out in my plan, but that's the general gist.

However, condoms should still be passed out in schools and able to purchase in stores for safety against STD's

It would never work, but sometimes I think it would be good if certain people were not allowed to have children. I love my nieces to death, but their mother never should have been allowed to have children. I lived in a 'welfare town' for a while, right after my sister-in-law gave birth to her second baby.. while I was living in this town I met a lot of people who openly admitted to having more children so that they could get more welfare. So, no, I don't think that licenses work, but I really wish there was a way to stop scumbags from giving birth. Lets face it, some women just shouldn't be mothers and it's sad, because the child/children will grow up in an unhappy environment and children learn by example...

we absolutely shouldn't.

it is our choice, our right. it's not something that the government should meddle with. they can't meddle with our rights. the government was established to secure our rights.

I don't know how they would be able to enforce this, so no. But I think social services should come up with some sort of system to seriously see if certain parents are really ready to take care of children. A more indpeth adoption system helps too, since so many parents are just adopting kids for the money. It seems like more and more children in today's youths are getting corrupt, and having random psychological issues. I think, in the future, there should be some sort of test to say if parents are ready for kids, but again...I have trouble seeing the government being able to enforce without seriously infringing on our rights.

NO. it would just turn into another of those things you have to wait on a waiting list for. or they haven't got time to find out if youra a good parent so if you get pregnant and give birth, they take your child because you have no lisence. cruel.

creak

to be honest, I think it's a great concept. It could help people decide the right time to have children. But on the other hand, not all pregnancies are planned... so it's not like anyone could really enforce it...

Unless social services or someone comes along and takes the child away if they don't have a license... I dunno ¯\(°3°)/¯

Luckily, in a democratic gov't this shouldn't happen. However, the idea of it is very promising, if you take the ratio of babies being born to the ratio of people dying on an annual basis. I'm against the idea, because I feel that any gov't, despite its origins, should take affirmative action against births in any country. Though, if some countries around the world did incorporate such a regulation it might actually benefit their livelihood and perhaps (In some countries) even their in economy in the future. Theoretically anyways. So, I don't particulary believe in any gov't taking regulations against births, but I do so see some sense in the notion.

It would be better for the children and it would keep the world's population under control, but no... I agree with Sillysia63377, it's too controling! Very "huxley"...
