    I disagree - the Socialist Party's legalisation of drawn child pornography to progressively help paedophiles and prevent instances of abuse was a lot more testing

    Also, I'd agree with an age limit of 18 or 21 on incest.
    I believe I remember defending it. It is certainly a policy I have supported in the past, as well as digitally created subjects and the like. Both are testing, but yours has a more intuitive rationale which is why people find it much easier to countenance. The thing about incest is that people find it hard to separate a possible result from an expected result, and thus fixate on procreation.

    Did your bill pass in the end?

    True, but I don't think we made it clear that it was a progressive attempt at helping paedophiles.

    No, no it didn't.

    And then UKIP called us child molesters in the GE.

    It's a very sensible policy. The counterargument typically is that it feeds a need for the real thing, but I don't think the evidence from any of the trials of similar legislation supports that conclusion. It has been many years since I looked into it in any depth though.

    Good ol' UKIP

    To be fair, they'd have called us something regardless.

    Yes, I would support some kind of constraints on reproductive freedom to prevent serious disabilities. There are enough kids in this world without parents who ought to be adopted, we don't need to go around popping out more ****ed up ones

    May sound like eugenics, but honestly I don't care. There's no reason we as a human race should continue to tolerate the production of disabled people when it's not necessary

    Although the ilk of Hitler did tremendous damage to the eugenics movement i'm actually a big supporter of the eugenics movement and the marketisation of the human genome. By using financial incentives we can encourage certain people to accept steralisation and not breed (they can adopt) and by creating 'designer babies' we can create a superior species (i would allow people to purchase these improvements).

    I got as far as page 5 before being disgusted at the people accepting a compramise.

    I retain my original stance and will vote Nay.

    I'm glad to see that in your isolation you've not fallen foul to their morally questionable allure.

    I am sympathetic with a lot of the Libertarian belief, but some of the crap they really seriously believe in is just ridiculous.

    I agree with that a lot in terms of what i'd support in principal.

      Incest can lead to a high chance of a child being born with a disability. It's disgusting and will only promote rape in families, making incest seem like it's normal, what next, beastiality? We can't allow this to happen because it will open the floodgates for more crazy bills, and will also result in the NHS forking out way more for increased abortions.

      There's no law to prevent women over 40 becoming pregnant and women can get wasted practically every other day when pregnant without facing legal consequences.
      That shouldn't be the case, but I don't expect any bills to be passed in relation to it unfortunately.
