Once again, New York proves it's just better than everywhere else. Around a month ago, a NY judge ordered a couple not to have any more kids. I've long been in favor of not allowing incompetent idiots to breed, but then again, I'm also in favor of making it legal to kill tourists, so take that for what it's worth.
Judge Orders N.Y. Couple Not to Conceive( Collapse )
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A couple has been ordered not to conceive any more children until the ones they already have are no longer in foster care.
A civil liberties advocate said the court ruling unsealed Friday was ``blatantly unconstitutional.''
Monroe County Family Court Judge Marilyn O'Connor ruled March 31 that both parents ``should not have yet another child which must be cared for at public expense.''
``The facts of this case and the reality of parenthood cry out for family planning education,'' she ruled. ``This court believes the constitutional right to have children is overcome when society must bear the financial and everyday burden of care.''
The judge is not forcing contraception on the couple nor is she requiring the mother to get an abortion should she become pregnant. The couple may choose to be sterilized at no cost to them, O'Connor ruled.
