TOPIC

Should there be a requirement to be a parent?

Essay

◆ Pros
 I strongly believe that there should be a requirement to be a parent for the three following reasons.
 The first reason is that it can alleviate the population explosion. Considering that the earth is already overcrowded and the situation is very serious, there should be this kind of law to limit the number of children people have.
 The second reason is that it can protect children from abuse and domestic violence. There should be some law to forbid people, who have high risk to be abusive and violent, to have children in order to protect children because children, especially small ones, have no power to protect themselves.
 The third reason is that it can reduce the number of crime. A lot of statistics show that many criminals who have committed felonies were abused physically or emotionally or sexually when they were child. Therefore, abusive parents produce criminals. Considering this fact, if the law will not allow abusive people to have children, it can absolutely decrease the number of crime.
 As I mentioned, for the aforementioned three reasons, I strongly believe that there should be a requirement to be a parent.

◆ Cons
 I do not believe that there should be a requirement to be a parent for the three following reasons.
 The first reason is that it can aggravate the declining birth rate. In developed countries, the problems of the declining birth rate are very serious and if there is some law which limits people to have their children freely, it can definitely exacerbate the situation. The number of young people will decrease and the number of elderly people will increase, and consequently, the society will become unsustainable.
 The second reason is that all the people have the right to have their children and family and pursue their happiness. This is an inalienable right which is stated and ensured in the constitution. Law which violates this right is completely unconstitutional.
 The third reason is that it costs a lot of money to enforce this kind of law. Considering that there are many other impending problems such as economic recession, environmental pollution, welfare problems and so on, the government cannot afford to spend money on this kind of thing now.
 As I mentioned, for the aforementioned three reasons, I do not believe that there should be a requirement to be a parent.

例によって、賛成派と反対派を書いてみました。

賛成派では、
「人口爆発の緩和」
「虐待や家庭内暴力から子供を守る」
「犯罪を減らす」
の3つをキーアイディアに書いてみました。

反論としては、
「先進国の出生率の減少を悪化させるのでは?」
「虐待をする可能性の高い親をどうやって見分けるのか?」
「虐待を受けた子供が犯罪を犯すとは限らないし、虐待受けていない子供でも犯罪を犯すものはたくさんいるのでは?」
などが考えられます。

反対派では、
「出生率の減少の悪化」
「全ての人に、子供と家族を持ち、幸せを追求する権利がある」
「このような法の施行には多くのお金がかかる」
の3つを、キーアイディアに書いてみました。

反論としては、
「むしろ、人口爆発の緩和になるのでは?」
「子供を虐待的な親から引き離すことも、子供にとっての幸せの追求では?」
「子供の命にかかわる事もあるので、お金をかけるに値するのでは?」
などが考えられますね。
