About damn time

NEWPORT, Ky. – For some men showing up in court for being habitually behind in child support, their choice is jail or a vasectomy.
Family Court Judge D. Michael “Mickey” Foellger has given the option to a few men who had multiple children and were tens of thousands of dollars behind on their child support.
Foellger said he considers it an effective way to get his message across — that having children is a responsibility.
“If these children are in poverty because these guys are not paying their child support, I have no qualms about it,” he said of his policy. “I don’t think these men deserve to have any more children.”

I liked the idea a guy on the Fark forums mentioned: Addictive birth control.
