Sterilising people with disabilities: eugenics or common sense?

Sterilising people with disabilities“NO, my disabled daughter should never have a child!”

There are those who believe everyone should have the right to become a parent, and those who do not.

The law in Queensland is clear on the subject. Under current legislation, it is possible for a third party to decide whether a woman can ever give birth, or a man can ever father a child.

That legislation relates to people with a disability. It’s a law some people say has a foundation in eugenics. For others, a court ruling in favour of parents seeking to sterilise their child is seen as a common sense solution to a very complex problem.
