    For impoverished families WHO ALREADY HAVE CHILDREN, is it inhumane to require them to have vasectomies/tubal ligation in exchange for food relief and general health services? Or is it inhumane to provide the food and health services to impoverished families and not require sterilization?

    I would argue the latter given the horrific life these children endure living in dirt and squalor and wondering if they will get anything to eat or drink. And what kind of life is it for the parents who live with the cries of their children from morning til night and not being able to ease their pain? I would like to hear the counter to his argument because I can see no virtue in doing nothing to curb the crisis of poverty in 3rd world countries.

    Everyone should be allowed to experience having a family, but there should be a limit when you have shown your inability to provide for them.

    For every lovely on the dole,
    Mandatory birth control.

    Problem solved. No coercion. Everybody wins. Simple as pie. Will never happen.

    Yes.
    For one thing, they have a higher death rate, so they need to have a higher birth rate to ofset it. Otherwise, you're just contributing to genocide.

    If you make sterilization contingent upon ONLY existing families receiving food and health services, then there is no forced sterilization.

    Historically, that has never been the way it plays out.
