    Would you sterilize your teenage daughter?

    Oh boy....any thoughts?




    Would you sterilize your teenage daughter?

    As the mother of a teenage daughter, I have to admit my first reaction was to be completely horrified by this, but after tossing the idea around in my mind for a few days I'm now at the point where I'm not completely against the general idea as a concept. Unfortunately it isn't that simple though.

    It remains highly debatable if encouraging teens to use birth control is the same as giving them permission to have sex. Is having condoms available in school bathrooms protecting them from unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, or is it simply giving them the green light to be sexually active? To be honest, I'm not sure. I think it really depends on the individual teenager and what their existing views are about having sex in the first place.

    What really troubles me about this concept though is not the sterilization itself, it is the idea of it being forced upon teenagers. I can't imagine living in a society where such a thing could be mandatory for those between the ages of 12-17. Presented as a choice, I think the idea could have merit for those who choose to take advantage of it, but forced? It crosses the line on too many other issues - freedom of choice being the main one.

    So the question is - If you could make the decision to temporarily sterilize your teenage daughter, would you? Is this a valid concept, or does it take away from our personal rights?
    FIGHT ON!

    I dont think I could do that to my child, but I also think there is a big part of parenting involved that could also be just as effective in this type of situation.

    Every family situation is different, so it could be effective for some and not for others (and very intrusive)

    I don't think so that is a little over the top for me.

    I'd put that in the same category as "ice-pick" lobotomies...a shameful violation of someone's person causing irreparable damage.

    to stop some folks from ever breeding...
    sure

    but i have no kids yet so i have no idea what i am talking about

    i just like that phrase that stupid people shouldn't breed.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    At that age, you might not want kids, but later on.....

    I think I should clarify here, I find it interesting that people think this way, and by no means do I agree with it.

    If you have a son, you only have to worry about one dick, his. With a daughter, you have to worry about every dick in town!

    Temporarily? Hell yes. I wish they'd bring back the implantable birth control.

    I'm sorry, was there a link there somewhere with an article? I didn't see it so I am just guessing as to the circumstances. Not having kids, but knowing the amount of teenaged pregnancies it could be a consideration but a little extreme.

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    As you put it here no. But I do have another way.

    Every boy and girl once they hit puberty have to take a test. If the test shows that any results of you breeding would be (mutts, woodchucks, low-lifes) {you know them} then its sorry kids.......snip, snip. Future problem solved.
    If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

    Why would I sterilize my daughter when I could just smash her boyfriend's balls with a rubber mallett?
