If a vasectomy was painless, 100% reversible and could only be reversed when the boy had reached adulthood and had some counselling sessions to help him understand the implications of his decision, would it be a good idea to make vasectomies normal for baby boys?

Just musing on the threads about child services, child abuse and thinking about accidental pregnancies

eugenics, have a look and a word with yourself

What about sterilising baby girls at birth too? hmm

This is a daft idea. Who would pay for all these vasectomies and reversals? What about if the original op had complications? Who looks at their baby boy and thinks "I know what I'll do, I'll make him infertile"?

oh piss off

Sirzy Fri 17-Feb-17 20:34:27

Well if we are being completely hypothetical then surely by your logic all girls should be sterilised at birth too? hmmconfused

The most horrible suggestions I've ever heard

Just to add, if the same was being discussed about girls, people would be up in arms about it. It's not just a mans job to protect against unwanted pregnancies.

I can kind of see what you mean, but still... no.

hmm would it be ok to force all girls to have an implant as soon as they reach puberty, after all its fairly painful and reversable

Well I think it would be ideal if all humans were infertile in their natural adult state and had to opt in to fertility, rather than opt in to contraception.
