Incest between parent and a consenting adult child...

Should the act if incest be legal or illegal? Why or why not?

How about marriage? Having kids?

Besides the "eww" factor (if you do in fact feel this way), do you find anything wrong with parent/consenting adult child incest?

How could a mother find her own child a child that she bathed and changed and nurtured to be sexually attractive? I don't get it and think it is disgusting.

I think two consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want as long as they are mentally aware and actually consenting to sex with ma or pa. While completely gross and ickkk it's not my business what two adults do with their vaginas and dicks.

There is just something VERY wrong with the parent to even CONSENT to it if the adult kid wanted it!!!!!

Yes, it should be illegal, so should marriage and having the blue babies they will have!!!!!!

JUST WHY?????

 illegal. there was an episode of SVU about this, and even though the child gave consent, i dont think its right, no matter your age, at least for me, you listen to your parents, you want to make them happy. its too messed up, mentally, for a person. having kids, there are too many risks,

This is what sparked my question! It was the one with the teenage boy right?

Quoting SarahSue87:

i think it should be illegal because of the potential harmful affects on offspring...unless they both agree to being sterilised then it shouldnt be allowed.

I feel like marriage between any 2 (or more, really) consenting adults should be legal.  I feel this is the only right way to write a law allowing gay marriages.  I find incest to be wrong, but I cannot let my own personal feelings about the subject dictate what the law should be.  MANY people find being gay gross and that it has a n eww factor, but their feelings should not be allowed to influence a law on that subject, as well.

Absolutely because the child in question obviously would not habve the mental competency to make right choices if that was to happen.
