    I would like to be able to restrict the amount of kids that physically and sexually abusive people have if I could.

    Other than that, no.

    Same....its difficult though,,I guess I would rather have gone through what I did and live to tell the tale than not be here at all.
    You can understand why people say it though..

    I think that Beryl has twice made a very apt point. There are many good, functioning adults born from abusive families, and I don't think many of them would wish they didn't exist. I would suggest that rather than spending money on forcing sterilisation and restrictions (an abhorrent thought), that the money could be better spent in supporting the children once they are actually here.

    Nasty catch 22 there.

    In hindsight, I know I should've left my husband after DD2 was born, but how can I say that because that means that DD3, DD4, and DD5 would never have been conceived. They are wonderful children and I wouldn't give them up for the world. Though if I were to do it all again I would've made different choices and they would never have been born.

    I know what you mean with China too, it looks like that policy is backfiring on an aging population.

    I didn't mean having one child is cruel but being restricted to one is..... FOR ME

    Sorry your right I didn't word that well.
