My wife and I have been working through the process of adopting a child over the last few months. It's hard work and very stringent (Rightly so) there are lots of hoops to jump through and forms, interviews etc etc. Taking on someone elses children is managed in a really careful way.
I understand that the parents, and I use the term in it's loosest possible sense, of the boys convicted for that horrible crime had no less than 7 offspring.
Is having children a right or a privilege and is it something that could, or should, be controlled for those evidently incapable of doing it properly.
