Format: Hardcover
If you think the drug war is putting a lot of people in jail, imagine the ovum war!

And imagine how this would be enforced. Automatic reversible sterilization for all citizens which is reversed upon grant of license? At what cost? What penalties? What cost for enforcement? What effect on the birth rate? Will there be ovum tourism, where people go overseas to have a baby? Will the state take the babies away? Where will they all be taken? He says there are plenty of parents that want to adopt, and that social agencies will have time to handle the licensing and so forth because there will be so much less crime and poverty. Dream on!

And then there's the Constitution. How do you get around that?

By the way, his book was written in 1994. At first, I thought it was a joke, like A Modest Proposal was so long ago, but no!

Disclosure: I read his paper, but not the book. That was enough!
