ONTARIO, Calif. — An 8-month-old boy has died after his mother told police she accidentally cleaned his nose with a cotton swab used earlier to clean a methamphetamine pipe.
Samuel Reta of Ontario was declared dead Friday at Loma Linda University Medical Center, according to the San Bernardino County Coroner's office.
Reta had been in a coma since police responding to a child-not-breathing emergency call early Thursday found him in full cardiac arrest. The baby also has a fractured skull, broken arm and pneumonia, police said.

What criteria would need to be established to define who could be licensed?
How would violations be punished?
The poo is going to fly on this one.

I would think there would have to be something like you need to prove you can provide for the child. If you can barely afford to care for yourself, how can you be expected to provide for a child?
Also, some sort of rule about having to be married, or a certain medical condition that if you don't have a child now, you may never have one. Too many children get affected by only having one parent raise them. Plus, it allows the parent to bad mouth the parent that isn't there.
I have no idea where to begin thinking about that one. The only way I can even imagine is by fining and forced abortion. Perhaps for repeat offenders, they would forceably tie the tubes. I don't mean to make it seem like women should be the only one punished, it's just guys can't get pregnant.
