Woman Ordered to Stop Having Kids or Faces Jail...

A Florida woman was ordered by a judge to stop having kids. Is this ruling legal? Tonight on The O’Reilly Factor, legal experts Lis Wiehl and Kimberly Guilfoyle ran through the facts of the case.

The woman, Kimberly Lightsey, has four young children, including a child who has cerebral palsy. On Halloween night, she felt the need to leave her children unsupervised at a hotel while she went out and partied. One of the children was reportedly upside-down strapped to a stroller. Fortunately, a passerby spotted them and called the cops.


Lightsey was charged with four counts of child abuse. She accepted a plea deal in which she agreed to plead guilty to two counts of child abuse, received 13 years probation and can’t have unsupervised visits with children. Not only did she lose her four kids, the judge ruled she can’t have children until the probation period ends.

If she has a child anyway, she’ll be sent to jail for five years. Now the ACLU is considering the case and the lawyer wants to appeal. Guilfoyle and Wiehl agreed that the judge’s ruling will hold up for one reason. Find out why in the segment below:

Because partying after you have kids is the most imporant thing in the world, right?  Some people can be so stupid.

I wish more people were ordered to not have kids. It might cut down on the population, government aid, and people who abuse and neglect children. 


Honestly. You have to apply for a license to cut hair, but any fuckwad can reproduce.

Lol.  I'm prochoice when it comes to abortions. They're just making her wait a few years, probably in hopes that she'd mature mentally.  Doubt she will though.

Honestly. You have to apply for a license to cut hair, but any fuckwad can reproduce. 

The only problem with that is you punish the innocent with the guilty. I mean, the only licensing I know of that isn't corrupt is for driving and have you been to the DMV lately? Biggest PITA ever. And how long before there are restrictions on it? Genetics can be checked now. What if your family has a history of disabled children? What if someone decides that that's a disservice to the child so you can't reproduce?

I understand what you mean, but at the same time..is that the world I want to live in?
