Being as they have bad genes why continue to hand them down? People with mental illness also have high rates of smoking and that can be detrimental to the kids. Who knows as well if they are going to have a stable home and family life? They could be in danger as well. Many times mentally ill people hook up with other mentally ill people because they can relate to each other. Having two mentally ill parents means double the chances of inheriting mental illness. Is this really fair to kids and society?

FYI:I'm pro-choice and am not at all suggesting forced abortion/sterilization just wondering if society should change its social perspective regarding this.

I dont have mental illness I was just thinking about it for other people. From what I've read it would be horrible to be born with mental illness. I would hate it if my parents had mental illness and chose to give birth and I had to live like that.

I would think so as well. With the diagnosis I have I wouldn't want to risk having children who could potentially be exposed to the loss of brain cells that occur on internet forums on a daily basis. Negative attention seeking is not always psychiatric in origin though. Good point.

DS,

Despite my sad, benighted status as a "mental person" it is clear to me that Bean Slap is a troll and directions is being ironic.

The world needs all kinds of people and you never know even if you are "normal" what challenges your children will face. To even use the term "mental" implys lack of education and understanding of your fellow humans and a lack of social skills, which can be learned if one applies oneself.

Illnesses are also very prevalent if a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, does drugs, or is malnourished. It's scary how uneducated most women are about their own body when it comes to pregnancy.

At the same time, who are we to say two people can't procreate? It might start with the mentally handicapped but could in time progress to limiting the IQ's of the parents from having a child. Who knows.

The sad reality of it all, survival of the fittest will take control of these situations over time.

shawn,
But this has nothing to do with legal regulation. Its merely social for concern for not harming a future child. Its like smoking, it used to be common but over time it has now been seen as harmful and something that should be avoided. I ask you a question; would you want to be born with schizophrenia or bipolar? The struggles those people have is tremendous! No one deserves to suffer like that. Those with mental illness should think about that before simply going on and having kids. You added way to much hyperbole and hyperreactionarism to the subject. Were not talking orwellian or scenarios here!

lassila,
I meant to write mentally ill but forgot. Obviously life is much worse if you have to deal with extreme emotional ups and downs, hospitalizations, suicide, voices in your head, oversensitivity, and lack of structure and stability in life. This is far from what "normal" (using your words) people deal with. I dont think you understand the difference between struggles faced by those with mental illness and those without. Theres huge issues that affect the former and nothing that really resembles the latter.

...???.... There are NON- "Mental" people to choose from???? EVERYONE is damaged, in some way(s)!! It's all a matter of degree, perception, and amount of tolerance you can offer. There are --NO-- perfectly "normal" people in the world!!! The only two I can think of were Adam and Eve...., and even That changed after they were kicked out of The Garden--- and it became WORSE QUICKLY.... see: Cain.

Hard knocks have taught me a few things over the decades. One of those lessons is that those who try to sell us the idea that everybody is damaged are usually aiming to make an easy buck off their BS.

This is a thought provoking question.
My mother is crazy.....she had me.
I'm a little less crazy than mum.....so things are looking up.

And MY kid is less crazy than ME!

Seems like the genes are working through their "issues".
And I do believe all the SPANKING has helped.
