Childrens rights to parents?
    #4299395 - 06/15/05 02:50 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Here is a question I've been thinking about.

Most people will say that every child has the rights to have
a set of parents (atleast the ones I have asked).

If you put that in contrast to that most people conceive their own.

Whats your opinion  :stoned:
Should your right to carry-on your genetics go before (or take precedence over) a child's right to parents?
You may choose only one
Yes
No

Children can lead a perfectly happy life with only one parent if they are brought up well by said parent.

No one has the right to deny an individual the right to have children on the grounds that "they feel it wouldn't be fair on the child". Who's anyone else to judge? It should be a personal choice. A lot of children are brought up in unhappy families with 2 parents. It depends on the what kind of person you are.

Is he asking if a single woman should have the right to have a child? Or is he asking if a person should have the right to adopt or give up for adoption? Or is he asking if a man should have the right to have unprotected sex with a woman to whom he's not married.

The assumption is that they are supposedly good parents

Should a couple make their own genetical-mixture or adopt already existing child if such present and in need of parents.

No force intended. Just your opinion about it. What you belive to be the right thing.

I don't see how that really fits in with this forum.

Your right. Maybe it's more of a philosophical question.

Now I understand....

Children don't really have a right to parents... I think human life is given "as is" and doesn't really have a right to anything (I read the fine print before incarnating here  :blush:).

A couple shouldn't feel forced (or ethically coerced) into adopting either. It would certainly be nice if couples chose to adopt rather than have their own children, since most orphans want a family. But I don't think they should be pressured to do that.

I still can't comprehend why anybody would want to give birth to a child. I do on the other hand understand the act of compassion and love in adopting a child in need.

I have a friend who was raised without both parents, his grandmother raised him. And she is from some willage, and is living somewhere in 1940's to be illustrative. So needless to say, it was hard to him, she never understood him and his young mind, and he didn't respect her and her backwards mentality. He was always sad because of his mother, she died when he was a baby, he doesn't even remember her, only has pictures that he keeps and charishes them. His detests his father because he ran aways as soon as he found out his mother was pregnant.
A sad story.

Once I went with him to his mothers grave, when we got there, he was a compleatly different guy, never seen him so calm and serious. He has a giant hole in his heart, and doesn't know how to get over it.

i support this as well, though not for myself. And thus you have natural selection.
