The government shouldn't have any say in reproductive rights. That being said this system we have where we give people more money the more kids they have should be scrapped.

Yea, a child limit would be pretty intrusive (aka China).  I suppose limiting the money might be better.  However, that might set up a scenario where some kids might starve or be malnourished.  I just thought that forcing one of them to have their tubes tied would prevent a child from even suffering since they were never conceived in the first place.  Something needs to be done because having parents show their kids that the government will always bail you out isn't a good philosophy to teach.  Sure there are cases to disprove this but a majority of kids would grow up with an entitlement ideology.
