For or Against: Spaying/Neutering Your Children

With technology today, it's perfectly possible to freeze embryos as well as sperm and eggs. So how come no one has explored spaying and neutering their kids before they mature to cut down on all of those potential health concerns?
Women with a mutated BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene carry a risk between 25% and 60% of developing ovarian cancer depending on the specific mutation and in the United States, between 7,500 and 8,000 diagnoses of testicular cancer are made each year, so are we not being irresponsible parents by not putting a stop to it in our kids at an early age?
I've always wondered...

hmmmm...now there is an interesting subject. Forced sterilization of poor southern women because being poor meant they were to stupid to reproduce. Experiments done on races other than white people. Oh..and my favorite...did you know Hitler sent his henchmen over here to STUDY our eugenics program? He admired the United States for it.

has anyone seen Demolition Man with Wesley Snipes? Thats pretty much what they do in that movie. Genetic testing and certain risk factors people arent allowed to have kids. There's no touching or anything.

Anyone seen GATTACA? They take the absolute best genes from both parents and make the most superior offspring possible and any 'natural' offspring is considered inferior. It's a good movie.

On the flip side of it, there was that ridiculous movie that illustrated how as society evolves, many of the "smartest" people are climbing the career ladder and not having kids, or not having many, and the stupid people are all reproducing so the world just gets stupider and stupider as time goes on until before long all of society has a ridiculously low IQ.
