Court to Ohio man: Stop fathering children

Some agree with ruling, others question Constitutionality

January 26, 2013

An Ohio judge’s order that a man owing tens of thousands of dollars in child support can father no more children until he is able to provide for the ones he has is getting a thumbs-up from some area......

I'm all for irresponsible people like him NOT having more children, but a judge or a law mandating it is just another thing the government should not have control over.

Whoever has children with this lowlife should be examined to see if they have functioning brain cells. The man obviously does not plan to support any children he has, so I think he should cease and desist. I like the ruling, he is not responsible / why should he continue to bring children into the world that he won't support?

He is not a man. A "man" owns up to his responsibility. What is he, then? He is a jackal.

I don't agree with Dennis Sipe. Regardless of whether the mom marries a wealthy guy and doesn't NEED the support, it is dad's responsibility to pay his portion of the support too. As for the ruling, I can't see how they can enforce it. Sure they can put him in jail after he creates a new child but when he's in jail its a guarantee that he won't pay support for the new one or the previous ones.

I don't like that our tax dollars are paying his way, but It is unconstitutional to order him to not have anymore kids..Support for these kind of decisions will only end up infringing further into our rights and private lives.

It's interesting to me that the people who say forcing sterility on a man so he doesn't produce children, are at the same time supporting anti-choice laws for women. So it's OK to force a woman to birth a child by this man, but not OK to sterilize him?

The government needs to butt out when it comes to reproduction issues. Women need to use the best birth control available and be more selective when it comes to who they mate with, and men need to become responsible for the babies they help create.

Not only should he be stopped from reproducing....there should be mandatory birth control for those receiving public assistance. I am tired of paying for those who cannot financially support their children.STOP breeding unless you can afford to raise them ON YOUR OWN!

I seem to remember a Cleveland Pro Basketball Player Shawn Kemp 11 childern with 9 different women. Some folks just think the rules are different for them.

Personally, in a case like this, sterilization would be the appropriate way to stop a person like this from producing more children.

I commend the judge for going out on a limb with this order. I also agree with an earlier post that likened this to a drunk driver, this man did break the law and something has to be done. We have such loose morals in our society today it's no wonder this man has so many kids. There is no excuse when birth control is so readily available.The buck doesn't stop with him or the women. The poorly managed welfare system practically pays people to have kids if they decide they don't want to work for a living. maybe out of sheer frustration at seeing this crap everyday the judge is trying to find a way to stop it, so go ahead and yell at the judge for stoping this man from further procriation. Yell at him for invading someones rights, get the order turned over so you can then yell because you have to pick up the tab for all his kids.

Again... what he did is a crime and it used to be that criminals HAD NO RIGHTS.

Also I don't get the ones who say this order is infringing on our rights. Do you have a dozen kids out there you are not providing for and are afraid if this holds someone will come after you. Every law and rule infringes on each and every one of us in some way but there has to be rules because there are so many iresponsible people out there. If you don't do the crime you don't have to worry about it infringing on your rights. I'm not trying to be flip but hey, maybe I want to go spray paint a smiley face on a stop sign...(I have no real intention of doing this, this is an example),....but when I get caught and arrested because I broke the law, I can cry all night that this infringes on my right to be creative, and it will fall on deaf ears as it should.

As a man who raised his youngin from his first marriage, because the child support would have never supported the child, i am only asking, what responsibility do any of these women have, double standard, used to get letters from CSA, saying We will attach HIS wages. Hmmmmm? System needs changed to reflect parents ability to pay in some cases, how do you think the depression in 2007 affected the ability for absent parents to pay? Are there parents who slide by, sure, but this is in effect larger govt., and another infringement on peoples rights.

I think the articles and the lawyers are turning this into something that it isn't. This clown has broken the law and the judge can put him in jail. The idea of staying out if he doesn't have children is an alternative. If he or his lawyers don't like it then he can just take the jail time that he has coming. The judge tries to create a better situation, so, no surprise, the public defenders are against it. Just think how many billable hours they're going to get from all those children without responsible parents. They're looking out for their future and to*****with the rest of us.

Hah! You think public defenders have billable hours?!?! Talk about one of the most thankless, underpaid jobs in public service. Go 100k in debt with a law degree to make 30k a year, defend criminal degenerates who cannot afford their own lawyer and then have the rest of society hate you for doing so. Billable hours... now that is hilarious.
