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...

Didn't they already do this? Eugenics?

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. :sick:

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.

Okay, I haven't voted or anything because I saw the last poll question " I realize this poll is tongue in cheek." Am I totally missing the point or is it a real poll?

Not so ridiculous of a movie, I say. The older I get, more and more examples of wastes of space pop up on this earth. Good example: the octomom or whatever they call her. What is it, 14 kids and counting?

I saw that movie in my first semester English class, I liked it too. I dont think I would like to live in that kind of world, no physical differences, defects....those kinds of things affect who you are. I like differences between people:)

I didn't think anyone would actually vote to spay and neuter their kids so I added the last option ;)
GSD Fan asked in another thread what people's opinions were on spaying and neutering children so I got to thinking... other than for birth control, if spaying and neutering is so great for health benefits, why don't people do it to their kids?
Most people only have kids like other people have pets anyway, as opposed to contributing a functioning member of society (you can spot the children of these people really easily, they have those ridiculous names that were never intended to be put on a resume), so what would be so wrong about just having their kids fixed right away? (again, tongue in cheek)

19 Kids and counting and she's expecting again if i heard right. freaking insane. how much can a persons body takes before it just breaks? I think she's trying to die in childbirth. and i agree octomom is a waste of space.

What kills me is the people that buy into this media. And to have 20 kids - that's ridiculous. I'm amazed she's alive. There's no way that's healthy. Look at mill bred dogs. :/

childbirth and puppy birth are natural.

Puppy mill bitches do not look awful because of being bred too many times, they look awful because they live in a poor environment, and are fed junky foods.

I do not have any kids so I must be one of the smart people too busy for brats.

I think that spay/neuter should be mandatory for all felons. And if a felon is pregnant when she goes to prison, her child is adopted out and she has no recourse to get it back. There should be repercussions for going beyond a certain point. We do not need play school wards in prisons.
