    Considering you need a license to potentially take another human's life into your hands (driving, owning a weapon, hunting, medical care, etc.), it's interesting to see all the ill-equipped people having kids.

    Is having a child a right or a privilige?

    I'm curious as to how people would react if everyone needed a license to raise a child.

    An IQ test might be nice. I'm used to seeing the 3-toothed imbreds who can't even pass the GED test in this town squirting kids out left and right.

    I hate sounding harsh, but that is the reality of it, and it's sad. I know if it's happening in a small town like this it's happening everywhere else too.

    It's a natural product of straight people fucking.

    We should require a license for straight people to fuck.

    Gays are free to fuck, since they aren't at such a high risk of accidentally producing an unwanted child.

    Interesting thought phoenyx.

    In my personal opinion, having a child is a privilige.

    Technically speaking it is a right, because people can do whatever they want. But I speak from personal experience when I say that people have children without even realizing all the elements that are necessary for a proper upbringing.

    I once read an article that said in order to be a good parent, you must be all of the following:
    A caretaker
    A teacher/tutor
    A cook
    A driver
    A psychologist
    and much more (I don't remember the exact titles)

    You can give people tests of all sort, but the thing is, people never know what they are doing until they are doing it. Some people rise up to the challenge and become great parents. Others just fall short.

    Interesting point Josh. It is true that the cyle of early pregnancy and having too many children may continue for many generation, but an IQ test isn't the best answer. But then again, I honestly don't know what is.

    I grew up in an area known for its high drop-out rates, and teen-pregnancy. However there were many individuals in my area who were determined to do something with their life. And there were many parents who were even more determined to see their childreen succeed. Many of them being high school drop-outs themselves.

    The measure of a good parent is not how smart they are, but how devoted and loving they are of their child. At least that's what I think.

    But being able to provide for them is a separate issue.

    It's a little of both and neither. Any 2 consenting adults can conceive a child out of their own free will, however the child, before it turns 18, becomes of a certain state-control, but only if its life and safety are in danger (if not then they have no interest basically).
