Wis. judge orders deadbeat dad not to procreate

Author:

A Wisconsin judge has told a man who is nearly $100,000 behind in child support payments to stop having kids.

In fact, Racine County Circuit Court Judge Tim Boyle told Corey Curtis, 44, of Racine, that the order was being made a part of his probation agreement, the Racine Journal Times reports. Curtis has nine children with six different mothers, the newspaper says.

“Common sense dictates you shouldn’t have kids you can’t afford,” the judge said.

In a similar 2001 case, Wisconsin Supreme Court justices ruled that a man's right to procreate had not been eliminated – he still had that right as long as he made support payments, the Journal Times reports.
