Skip to comments.Should drug addicts who fail to pay child support have birth control?
Posted on 07/28/2017 8:26:29 AM PDT by richardb72
Dr. John Lott debated a lawyer from Nashville, David Randolph Smith, about whether drug addicts who have frequently failed to provide child support be given the option of birth control to reduce their sentences by 30 days. The debate took place on Wednesday, July 26th, on TRT World News.

Yes, sterilize them.
Lock them up for their own and our own good.
Dry them out.
Give them three hots and a cot, in some arid place.
Give it a couple of years.
Release them into monitored group housing in industrial areas. Re-arrest as necessary.
I’m a big civil libertarian. But allowing people addicted to heroin, meth or worse and keeping them in the free population is doing nobody a service.
You forgot: Sterilize them.
Idiot piece built entirely on unchallenged assumptions and self righeosness with no intellectual room to retreat.
Every paragraph about this screams that it was written by a social justice warrior desiring to put words into the mouths of conservatives.
Obviously it works to some extent.
drug addicts should be on forced b/c whether they have had kids or not. They bring nothing to the table to benefit kids.
I consider myself a civil libertarian also. Why are cops using narcan to save druggies from their own decisions? The other half of freedom is responsibility.
Offer them 10k to get a vasectomy our their tubes tied. Yes they will use that money to buy drugs but in the long run you will have fewer children in need. That’s pennies to what a lifetime of their kids will cost the state
First sterilize drug addicts.
Then heavy drinkers
Then fat people
Then those with genetic defects
You’ve arrived at the world of GATTACA
I think the newer carfentanyl will take care of lots of addicts.
Elephant tranquilizers are a bit too strong.
It’s removable once they get their act together.
“In June, 2016 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police seized one kilogram of carfentanil shipped from China in a box labelled “printer accessories”. According to the Canada Border Services Agency, the shipment contained 50 million lethal doses of the drug, more than enough carfentanil to wipe out the entire population of the country, in containers labeled as toner cartridges for Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printers.”
Well it sure brought out the FR Eugenicism wing.
Agreed. I never liked the idea of chemical castration of sex offenders for the same reason. Once you open that door, things can get strange in a hurry.
That would be giving liberals a wide opening to a power of hell.
Once you decide the State has power over who can and who can not have children liberals will make it based on your mental health and like the Soviet Union, mental health determinations lie in your political correctness and love to the State.
Before we jump on a bandwagon, we must make sure we know it’s real destination.
It’d be cheaper and more expedient to put them in the public stocks on the courthouse square for a couple years or until the buzzards pick their bones whichever comes first.
They should have birth control, whack!
Time to quit this game of victim with these repeaters of drug abuse! They need to be incarcerated and put to work on the land that the states own with their prison systems. Quit giving them access to all of the programs that they do not care about!
