also it would take the older drivers off the road and cut the amount of deaths caused by old people who insist on driving even though they clearly
aren't up to it
If thats your logic for supporting euthanasia then surely you support the same for the young first time drivers who cause accidents. How about those
who text behind the wheel? What about tailgators? If we euthanize them it will get them off of the road and reduce accidents. Perhaps stricter
licensing standards would be a little more reasonable? Old people are a liability? So at what age does society get to view you as a liability? The
elderly have a lot to teach us. Sure some of them are stubborn old coots but they can impart a lot of wisdom on the young.
Sterilization should be mandatory to everyone over the age of 40
And what exactly is your reasoning behind this? What about people who make a conscious decision to not have kids until later in life in order to be
prepared financially or emotionally? What if someone doesn't meet the right person until 45. Will we have waivers for these people? Who gets to
anyone caught fiddling the system
What is your definition of fiddling the system? Does a first time offender get sterilized? How about a political dissident? So mistakes in life will
be met with sterilization?
all prisoners found guilty of their crime(s) especially rapists.
And what exactly do you think sterilization will do to a rapist? Keep him from raping again? Although rape is close to the lowest crime you can commit
I think we can think of better punishments then sterilization. How about more time in prison? Instead of less time then some drug offenders.
This world is overpopulated as it is and we need to maintain a healthy balance.
We could be considered slightly overpopulated but the answer is not sterilization and euthanasia. How about better use of technology? Sustainable
farming practices? Sustainable energy? The earth can easily support our population if we make use of science and our technology.
I am pro sterilization and euthanasia
Clearly. Although I am not sure that you know why.
