Welcome to Librarium Online!
Recently, 2 drug addicts were arrested on a possestion charge. The Male was sent to prison for a couple of years (2nd time being arrested). The female was given probation and is currently pregnant with her child. The judge ordered that this be her last baby, if she gets pregnant with another one during her probabtion, she will be sent to jail. Now comes the details. This mother has been using drugs for the past 9 years. She has had four children by the same man that was sent to jail. All four have been taken away from her by the government due to the fact that she cannot take care of them, and is a drug addict. The children are also what one would call "crack" babies, due to the fact that the mother used drugs during her pregnancy as will the one that she is pregnant with. Civil rights activists are calling for the judges resignation and a reversal of the verdict calling it "inhumane". Do you think that the verdict is right, or should the judge resign?
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
That particular woman has caused more suffering in her life time by having four kids that now have to grow up in foster homes or orphanages because she made bad choices. Not to mention the physical problems that they will have to suffer for the rest of their lives because she's a crack addict. It's HER choices, in this case, that are the bad choices NOT the judge. SOMEONE needs to stop her from having kids, and at the point where she's hurting the children it's NOT HER CHOICE ANYMORE.
I have two children of my own, and I can't imagine them having to live a life like that. It makes me really really angry that these stupid people are more concerned about her "rights" than about all of the children she has screwed over already. What about THEIR rights?
I agree H0urg1ass, that is BS... I don't have kids yet (but hopfully with in the next 3 years ), but they deserve better... her husband/boyfriend, should have his tubes tied or his nuts cut off... or if not that have the womans... "womanly goodness" taken out so that she can't have any more children... hence not screwing up any more lives... people like this ***** me off... I decked my best friends real mother for abandoning her in a foster home... if they can't deal with the resonsability they shouldn't be alowed to have children in the first place <_<

Well, I guess this is odd coming from one who supports the option of abortion, but I am glad that the judge sentenced her the way he did. When you are a criminal, you lose a lot of rights anyway, things like the ability to vote. We also take away the ability to drive from those who break motor vehicle laws, so I don't see why we can't sentence a person who is harming not only herself, but her children, to not cause anymore harm.

Church: "Ok, so we're agreed? You first!"
Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."
I think the ruling is very sturn, but very fair. I beleive that sentances are better dealt out at judgement day. Although, if one has done so much to slant the odds that far against others (her children) then something should atleast be done to protect them.
I also agree with the judgement. I would further the argument that this should be applied to all on welfare or government assistance. If you cannot afford to take care of yourself or the children you currently have, then you shouldn't have any more. Civil rights activists can blow it out their @$$. Having children is not a right. No where in the US constitution does it say you have the right to bear children. I'm sick of seeing lazy &%$*s drinking, partying, and pumping out babies while collecting welfare checks. It is not my job to work (taxes) so this type of person doesn't have to. I have no problem helping those who truly need help. It is crap that third generation welfare families exist. Get them off their lazy butts and working, and while they are on welfare no more children. If they have another, then cut off the dole. *End Rant*
Sorry about that, but I am really tired of it. I have friends that have two or more jobs to make ends meet.

Zora Blade and Havelock already said it all better than I can. I have a friend (well, more of a friend of a friend) who to talk to you would think she is a grizzled war veteran, not a 22 year old girl. Her parents were completely irresponsible and when she finally ended up in a foster home still routinely got the short end of the stick in life. She had to grow up and be an adult by probably 11 or 12 just to get by because the adults around her would not act like adults.
People need to take responsibility for themselves. If you do not want children, use birth control (every time!. If you still get pregnant (or your girlfriend still gets pregnant), get an abortion or give the child up to adoption right after birth. If you do not want to use birth control and are not in a position to support children, do not have sex!!! If your belief system does not permit you to use birth control, then that is fine, but do not make others suffer because your own will is too weak to control yourself.
And guys, if you are going to sleep with a girl, use protection, and preferably make sure she is on borth control. If she does get pregnant, support her, take responsibility for your actions.

I agree completely with the judges decision it is very strict but ultimatly fair considering the circumstances.
