'Stop Having Kids!': Judge Orders Man Owing $100K in Child Support Payments to Quit Procreating
In a decision by an Ohio judge, 35-year-old defendant Asim Taylor was ordered to "make all reasonable efforts to avoid impregnating a woman." The father of four reportedly owes nearly $100,000 in unpaid child support payments.
Taylor was found guilty on Wednesday, and sentenced to five years probation with the added order that he not procreate. His lawyer, however, says it violates his client's right to privacy.
Lis Wiehl and Doug Burns reacted on
today's Happening Now, with Burns contending that the decision was "not legal."
"You can't check the Constitution at the door, and there's a Constitutional right to procreate. However, it's a question of semantics. You can't say 'no kids, period.' But, you probably can say 'no kids until you can demonstrate the feasibility of your economics on it.'"
Wiehl disagreed, however. She asserted that the judge had every right to say to the defendant, if you want this probation, you have to abide by certain conditions.
