What is your take on someone that is mentally retarded procreating? My cousin has a friend that is mentally retarded and can't take care of herself fully. She was doing a workshop thing with other people that are mentally retarded. She met a guy and they ended up having sex. She got pregnant. She didn't know she was pregnant till she was about 7 months along. A few months after this baby was born, she got pregnant again with baby number two. She can barely take care of herself. She is with the father of her children. His mom lives with them and she takes care of the two babies as well as them. What is your thought of people that are mentally retarded, have down syndrome, can't take care of them self having babies?

Well clearly since they are not perfect like you they shouldn't be breeding,  also the word "retarded" is offensive!

There are plenty of mentally challenged people who are fully capable of taking care of themselves.

That being said, any person who is incapable of caring for themselves should NOT be having kids. 

If they are adults and want to date, the parents should very seriously consider birth control.

I would say let them be. Just because they have mental problems doesn't mean they can't have emotions. Obviously his mom is okay with it, or she wouldn't be taking care of the babies.

I don't know. I guess there would be a lot of factors to consider. The first thing that pops into my head is the movie I AM Sam. I thought it was so sad when his daughter was taken. I know it's just a movie, lol. But I've never really thought about it.
