interested to learn where the line in the sand would be in this fascist hell-topia
I made this thread because I'm so conflicted about it.
On the one hand, denying someone the right to reproduce is very very shaky grounds on a human rights level, but what about the quality of life the child will have? You're knowingly making things very difficult for them. And I'm not convinced that's fair at all. Obviously, as Loui_Tacceh said below if the parents know what they're doing and are capable, then maybe that's an exception to the rule, but I'm really not to sure about this.
I see what you're saying but deciding who can and can't reproduce is a slippery fucking slope. They'll be blocking pornography on the internet before you know it.
this reminds me of another big question, but i think that's a thread for another day
but the thread title was people...with disabilities, not people who could pass on disabilities.
With a number of adolescents being given hormones to suppress menstruation.
If the person was severely mentally disabled it wouldn't just be the guardian, it'd be an assigned social worker and health professional. They'd make the decision from there in consultation with the individual.
I certainly wouldn't put learning disabilities in the category of 'serious' disability that should affect whether someone should be able to reproduce or not.
didn't even have that movie in mind when i made this, might give that another watch tonight
