I really believe that we have so many problems in our society now because we allow just anyone to reproduce, in fact people are pressurised into having children whether they want them, or whether theyr`e genetically fit. I was one of these people. I had a baby when I was 18, & he was adopted. He has been in touch, & unfortanately he has suffered from depression, like my mother. Even though the gene skipped a generation, the family curse still got him. I wish that I`d been sterilised as soon as I hit puberty, then i wouldn`t have polluted the gene pool.
