Why, Oh, Why!?!?

Why do we not have a license to have a child?

We have a license to drive.
We have a license to get married.
But, as of yet, just ole anyone can have a kid.

I can't tell you how many news stories I've been subjected to of children who've been beaten, tortured, maimed, abused, and then, mercifully (if you believe in God) killed.

What

The

Fuck

Of all the things that should have a test, a modicum of consideration. Even when you apply for a marriage license (at least in NYC) you have to wait 24 hours. I'm all for reproductive rights. A woman should have the final say in how her body is used. But if she's not making a proactive choice (different from a procreative choice), I mean, god damn it, I'd make a better mother than most people, but I wouldn't make the mother that I WANT to be, and so that's why I don't (aside from not having health insurance since 2000). Doesn't anyone get that having babies means bringing totally innocent, unscathed people into this hell that we deal with every day? I cringe at the thought of the world that children now inhabit.

There should be a license. It's not fair. To society.

To them.

In complete agreement with you on this one.
