    Ohhhhh, Simply being a Catholic is evidence of incompetency! That's the way liberals think. Of course.

    I'm fully aware of the clean debate zone guidelines so it is difficult for me to express how truly repugnant I find it that people are even discussing this.

    I think these arguments were probably thoroughly examined in the beer gardens of Berlin and Munich circa 1930s.

    Lol:)

    This thread has been very interesting, I've found myself agreeing and disagreeing with most of the main posters. While it has given me pause, I still find myself where I was when I started, which is the state should move to sterilize the couple I mentioned in my OP.

    If the couple are wards of the state, there is nothing prohibiting the state from having both of them sterilized if the state so wishes.

    I believe they are, and I'm aware of that. However I think, as has been shown in this thread, the issue of sterilization is a highly charged one, and so the state hasn't acted, when they should.

    I understand the "wards of the state" argument and it does make sense. But it's like you kicked over a rock with lots of ugly things down there that I really don't want to look at.
    Gee thanks.

    Today, this couple. Tomorrow it could be someone you love. I oppose government agents making such decisions. We cannot trust them with our tax dollars. How on earth can we trust them with our health?

    Guardians should be allowed to make that decision, and where the state is the guardian, they should make that decision.
