Why shouldn't people be expected to have a breeding license. You need careful screening to adopt or foster a child. Even if you want to marry a foreigner the government wants you to prove you can afford this wife/husband.
Why shouldn't human breeders be expected to show that, and I am throwing things out randomly and in part tongue in cheek:
1) Your genes will be of value to the society at large. Too many poor uneducated people have huge families and their kids will become the next generation of poor and uneducated large families;
2) Prove that you are mentally stable there are too many children/people who have been abused mentally and physically by unstable parent/s;
3) Prove that you could financially support this child that you have insisted on bringing into an already overpopulated world; Especially with our current meltdown the welfare system can't afford any more mouths to feed;
4) Sign a contract with your partner that the two of you are committing to spend the next 18 years together to give this child every opportunity possible to become the best person he can be; Single mother's children are much more likely to land up in trouble with the law;
5) No breeding licenses to non-citizens. Being in a foreign country shouldn't give you the right to create citizens of that country. If you insist on breeding you need a license from your home country and then your child will be given citizenship of the country that gave you the license;
6) If you are practising why aren't you protecting? Without a breeding license you must use contraception. No accidents - no excuses. Abortion is also not contraception.

2) The unborn infant can't insist that he should be entitled to two parents- which research is the best number to raise a healthy well balanced child;
4) The unborn infant doesn't have the right to complain if his mother chooses to smoke, drink alcohol, do drugs prescribed or illicit;
5) The unborn infant doesn't have the right to insist that his parents should financially be able to feed him once he is born.

Then I see people say something like birth control is not 100% effective. Well then you shouldn't be screwing someone you are not prepared to do the long haul with then.
