    I don't know whether many of you post in D and D. Anyway, on the topic on stopping teenage pregnancies, these were some of the views:

    (Original post by TheVlad)
    If so, do you think that a long-term reduction in the rate would justify some mothers' in the short term being forced to give up their babies?
    (Original post by Douglas)
    Perhaps there should be mandatory abortions for unwed pregnant teens.
    Does anyone here actually find the prospect of forcing a mother to be separated from her child, or forcing a teenager to have an abortion slightly disturbing?

    It seems that most members in D and D find these ideas perfectly reasonable. I was wondering whether this is standard on TSR, or whether people in GC have their sense of morality a bit more intact! :eek:

    i think 'irresponsible' mothers should have their baby taken away yes

    there is a massive long-list of loving couples prepared to adopt them

    by irresponsible mothers i mean teenage-girls who can't afford to support their own baby and end up relying on the state to pick up the pieces either through heavy benefits or even giving them a council-house

    So you are prepared to forcefully break the bond between a mother and her child.

    This is where you hide. What is your solution to the ever-growing problem of teenager's having babies then?

    if its better for a child then yes

    if a mother was beating her child would you let her keep it?

    I agree. Some people are just to young, reckless and immature to have children. I don't believe in licenses though but something needs to be done to solve this problem.

    if the sole intent of a girl getting pregnant is to "queue jump" to the head of the council house waiting list, has she REALLY got the child's best interest at heart? Or is it a means to an end?

    Yeah, I was going to say - quoting someone out of context is not going to produce much helpful debate.

    Douglas was probably tring to be problematic like that other person who advocated random abortions for all 25% of potential births or something just for a bit fun.

    yea i agree with you..

    mother-child bond is rubbish cus when the baby is first born if it was put into adoption at an early age, it won't even remember ever *not* being in adoption

    and if it is for the benefit of that child to break that bond, it should be done

    I don't know how you would judge whether someone "deserves" to have children - it'd be someone's idea of what constitutes a "good" or "responsible" person, affected by their own prejudices. If someone's hurting their child, then yes, get the child out of there - but splitting up mothers and children just because a mother is viewed as inferior by someone who doesn't even know them doesn't seem right to me. I'm having scary thoughts about someone in a suit at a desk somewhere in the future, trying to decide whether or not I "deserve" to have children... it's a horrible thought. As is the idea of forcing teenage girls to have abortions, which to me seems like abuse in itself.
