    There is NO positive correlation between the ability to pro-create and parenting skills. Lack of judgment or parenting skills on the part of the parents requires the society-at-large to consider the best interests of the child. The ability to copulate is not a sacrosanct right to determine the welfare of a child. Period!

    If these parents are pro life they should understand that it doesn't just mean for the embryo in the womb, it means life for every child, including their own.
