Is parenthood a right or a privilege?
The reality is that there have existed, continue to exist, and will exist in the future a great number of people who are not fit to be parents. (Yes, nobody is perfect and parenting mistakes help you learn/grow.) I am talking more about people who do evil things to their children that leave them scarred their entire lives, parents who fail miserably at raising and nurturing their children, and parents who do not have the emotional and psychological capabilities to raise a child.
Therefore, I argue that parenthood ought to be viewed as a privilege and not some right or obligation that people should aspire to.
