This idea is not a response to concerns of overpopulation. I simply think that a lot of people bring children into this world in very unfavourable conditions which leads to increased crime, violence, substance abuse, you name it.
Edit: because there's been a lot of feedback about the impracticality of the idea i'd like you to respond to the question with the assumption that it can be done. This is a purely theoretical matter and i do not want practicality to be a factor in deciding for an answer
Edit2: if, for whatever reason, you are unable or unwilling to engage in a hypothetical conversation then don't bother replying as this is the whole point of the discussion

And what would you do to 'unapproved' children?
How is this "right" earned?
The matter at hand is not how you would enforce such a rule. This is purely theoretical as in, would you agree or not and why so?
This will be interesting.
Well, it would be great to prevent Africans, south Asians, and the poor from making so many babies, but people don't have a fertility switch that you can activate like that.
I can't say I disagree with the general notion of selective breeding among people. There are a lot of unfavourable conditions, ranging from kids that'll only ever know poverty to those who have kids just to claim benefits.
But it's such a ridiculously impractical idea that it's just not worth discussing.
But generally when you want to do something you first think if it's worth doing it and then how would you do it. Take it as this was at the point of "is it worth doing", simply assuming that it can be done.
if we lived in such a world you wouldn't exist, op
