Watch this movie; Profoundly Normal. I used to feel a certain way about mentally unstable people having kids but this film changed some of my opinions.

In Florida, its considered illegal to have sex with a mentally ill or incapacitated person ( of course depending on the affliction and if it effects decision making and reasoning). They view it much like a child, as in the person can't consent. You can face a 2nd degree rape charge.

I don't feel like people should have say so over others wombs, but from personal experience, it does scare me.

There was a mentally ill girl who moved in a property I used to work at work her baby girl. I used to see her walking back and forth with the stroller, and assumed she was going for a walk. We started getting complaints from her roommate that she was leaving the baby unattended in her apartment.

Come to find out she was taking the trash out in the stroller and leaving the baby in the house, on the bed by herself. The baby finally fell off the bed and hit her head on the nightstand.

Police and DCF ended up being called and her family broke her lease so she could go home and they could help the care for the baby.

I saw her about a year ago and she was pregnant again.

Hate to say it, but some people are unfit to have children. I wouldn't go as far as sterilization, because with help of family or a good support system, they could very well raise their own children.

Ish made me sad.

But if a man has sex with a drunk woman he is wrong, correct? At least a person can choose whether or not to get drunk. So what's up, BHM? It's okay for men to prey on mentally disabled women? Make up your minds.

I don't understand how people get drunk enough to be incoherent.

I'm gonna need to leave this alone because I have strong feeling about child welfare.

One word--Sterilization.


Let me add two words: Human rights, Eugenics. 

It's not that simple.
