Okay so only Paris Hilton and the Kardashians and their ilk should reproduce. Yikes.
We do not have a rigid caste sytem in which a person is stuck for life in the socioeconomic status into which he or she is born. In a capitalistic
society a smart enterprising poor person can hope to become wealthy. And a rich kid can squander it all and end up poor. So I don't get why you think
we should let socioeconomic status be such a strong determining factor in deciding who gets to reproduce. If we were to start regulating reproduction,
it seems to me it would make more sense to implement a licensing system that tests for more meaningful parenting traits like intelligence, common
sense, and compassion. Let's weed out the willfully stupid abusive parents who really wreck their kids and by extension, society.
But I am not in favor of the government dictating reproductive decisions in that way. Even though I'm a Christian who is pro life for myself, I
don't seek to overturn abortion rights. I don't want to live with the government taking on the role of my parent, making my most basic decisions for
me. I simply do not trust the greedy sociopaths in charge enough. Why should the Cheneys and Chertoffs of the world decide my rights like that? I'm
an adult and can make my own choices over my own reproductive system. So my statements above are not what I am truly wishing on my country.
