Mentally Retarded Adult's/Mentally Ill Person's Should Be Sterilized. CPS should be allowed to take Children away from Intellectually Impaired/Mentally Ill People who are capable of Abusing/Neglecting a Child/ren, or who have already Abused/Neglected a Child/ren

I'm mild mentally retarded and i believe in forced sterilization for mentally retarded adult's. i'm mild mentally retarded and had my parent's get me sterilized when i was only 20 year's old. i know i'm not capable of raising children. if i did have any children i might end up abusing them with violence. i am a very nervous type person and children get on my nervs really easy. i hope u people understand why i got sterilized

CPS have the right to take away Children from Intellectually Impaired/Mentally Ill People they feel are capable of neglecting or abusing children. Or those intellectually Impaired/Mentally Ill Persons who have already abused or neglected.

Intellectually Impaired Persons/Mentally Ill Persons who have already abused/neglected a Child/ren should be sterilzed.

Also CPS case workers/social workers have the right to make sure Intellectually Impaired Persons/Mentally Ill Persons who have neglected/abused a child/ren can only be given very limited visitation-maybe 5 or less visits a year with the children they reproduce. If case workers/social workers feel they should be banned from any visitation from the children they reproduced then this should happen. 

The children that were reproduced by intellectually impaired/mentally ill persons. Need to be raised by normal people and need to bond with normal people who raise them. They should not be able to bond or be raised by intellectually impaired or mentally ill persons

  • If you're not a parent, then why are you here? Aside from trolling.

  • You include mental illness. What is considered "mental illness" is broad, including depression, dysthymia, anxiety, dementia, schizophrenia, etc. I would argue that even those with mental illnesses are capable of raising healthy children. Mental impairment, too, is a broad definition. Obviously you, who has mild mental retardation, has great rationalization abilities and an ability to exercise forethought. I would argue that there are adults with normal intelligence who do not demonstrate such a level of responsibility. I think it is dangerous to impose reproductive limitations unilaterally.

    I would instead suggest that we are all given birth control, and only those that demonstrate an ability to raise a child-- i.e. provide shelter, food, clothing, love, etc., and go through a vigorous screening actually be allowed to have children! :D

  • I agree with Uhura- if you're not a MOM, then why are you on CafeMOM?

    To answer your question, I think you are WRONG. I don't think anyone's reproductive rights should be tampered with, unless there is a serious issue. There are plenty of people who *I* think should be sterilized- for some examples, go take a look at and I don't think ANY of them have any mental or intellectual issues, besides being a low-life piece of crap. I guess I'm probably taking your question to heart, since I would be considered to have mental illness. I am a good mother, I have never harmed my children, I love them more than life itself. I have do not have a criminal record, and only 2 tickets ever in my whole life. Does that sound like someone who needs to have their kids removed and be sterilized? I don't think so.

  • Personally I don't believe you have any form of mental retardation. Sorry, I think you're just a troll posting questions to start a fuss. Go find your fun somewhere else.
