This defies belief.

Don't even know where to start.

This highlights the whole issue of population "control". If this woman was steralised, there would be a public outcry with accusations of an abuse of human rights. But what about the rights of these unfortunate children?

Most couples who are on benefits and have more than 4 children receive more money than they could easily earn so there's no incentive to get a job. Maybe there should be a limit to the number of children eligible for benefits.

I think this woman and her partner should be steralised but it won't happen.

My friend's daughter was sterilized at 14 (this was many many years ago) she attended a sheltered workshop, the people there were mainly mentally disabled men ( she herself eas disabled). Mentally handicapped people often have an increased libido and also don't understand the social ettiquette of sexual activity. Basically this girl was having sex with several men per day. A LOT was done to try and stop this but she managed to get away for a few minutes here and there,it was almost impossible. The matter went to a tribunal and it was decided that she be sterilised. Her Mum was in full agreeance. Hard decision though. She's about 35 now.
They did try various methods of contraception but her body was rejecting them, not sure why, I just know it wasn't a reliable option.

Agree with Linz. Have we thought about our own lives and how lucky we are, that we had the right parents?

These are the wrong parents.

I wish that I could be nonjudgemental, but how f-ing stupid can you be? I had clients who were like that. Normal intellegence, yes, but common sense, no. There's no talking to them about contraception. Now you know one of the reasons why I write, teach related classes and cook. FEH!

Linz I think that's a good idea, about the number of kids and the eligibility for benefits.
We've had a huge increase in teenage mums here because the govermnment brought out the baby bonus, basically a cash handout of several thousand dollars just for having a baby. To a 16 year old that's a fortune.
I think a lot of the thinking behind this was to balance out the population , so to speak, as we are becoming top heavy (more older people than younger ones). I can understand that but still, it's encouraged a lot of people to have babies that probably wouldn't haver done. Quite a few of Kathryn's friends have done so, some are coping well, some aren't at all.
