A vasectomy is cheaper than pre-natal care and birth and c-sections.� It's UNDER used if anything.� There are a lot of people who have absolutely no business pro-creating.� You need a license to have a dog, a license to go fishing, a license to dig clams and a license to sell balloons outside Fenway park but ANYONE can�have a kid.Vasectomies should be FREE to all.�

We did that when I was in high school.� No programmed dolls, though.� We had to carry around a raw egg and pretend it was a baby.I remember an episode of Frasier where Niles was trying to "practice" being a father.� Carried around a 10 lb. bag of flour strapped to his chest.� Hilarity ensued when Eddie the dog attacked the bag of flour.I've seen ads on TV for a new reality show featuring teenage couples caring for babies full time.�

We had to "get married" and carry however many eggs around that represented how many kids we thought we'd have.� Had to replace each egg every day for obvious stink reasons. I think I ended up wiht 4 of the damned things, but my "husband" was determined to be a hands on dad and he had them at least half the time.� We were assigned spouses in this class, and my hubby and I were the oddest couple of all time. Complete opposites. And we were the only couple that didn't split up by the end of the week.� When we see each other now we refer to each other as our first wife/hubby. Though neither of us ever married anyone else.

I'll vote that it's in the "not used enough" catagory.Seems it can do wonders to�a good relationship.� One couple I know� decided to have one after having five beautiful kids.� Now they are like kids themselves and couldn't be happier.� No more fears.� That's got to be a good thing
