When I rule the world.

When I rule the world, things will be different, let me tell you. I'm tired of seeing programs where a drug addict mother comes in to the hospital to give birth, and everyone is all "Oh, I hope this straightens her out" and "Her other 5 kids were taken away, but this time, I think things will be different." and the mother says brilliant things like "I knew I should give up the crack when I found out I was havin' another one, but I just couldn't. So I cut back lots, and now I just need to find a home, a job, a man, and my other kids." The baby is going through withdrawal, the nurses shake their heads as they watch the mom (by now she has the shakes) get into a cab with the baby, and everyone says "So sad. That poor baby."
The solution? The very first time a druggie has a baby, the doctor ties and cuts those tubes. No more babies for her. No more innocent little creatures born craving heroin. If she gets her shit together later, and is mad about being sterilized, she can adopt someone else's crack baby.
End of story. No bleeding hearts over here at AverageMom. You should hear my thoughts on sex offenders and prison. Now I just need to get voted into "Ruler of the World" to put my plan into action.

I once met a drug addict who was hospitalized until she delivered her baby. She had 3 children that were all taken away from her. Her baby would be taken away from her. It was an incredibly sad consequence but one that she understood and accepted bravely.

You are sooo right. Where do I vote?

You are absolutely right. There are too many sad stories about poor little babies being born in such hard shape because their mother didn't love them enough to get her life in shape. It is just so sad.

I can't even THINK about children in that situation. Too hard.

I'll let you be the hard-liner because I can't handle it!

Here, here. You get my vote Average Mom. What a good idea... my heart goes out to the children of parents who are addicts...

You need a keynote speaker for your political convention, let me know. I can rant on that subject pretty good.

Michelle said...

I'd vote for you too, but I expect that it will be a hostile takeover vs. a general election :)

You've got my vote! Hell ya!

I'll run your campaign. And vote for you, too.

Maybe licenses to pro-create - just like we do for marriage, driving, hunting, etc. - would help the situation.

You've got my vote too. I'll even volunteer to hand out fliers. :)
