    Do you realize that you're talking about half of the population?

    Who do you think should have the authority to make such a decision?

    Better question! Why should anyone have the right to discriminate against anyone else for any reason?

    How would you stop some one from having a child? Ninety-eight is perfectly normal. How would you monitor all this anyway? Force sterilization??????

    I do feel that stupid people have too many kids; but 100 is oficially th average I.Q.. Stopping people under that level from having kids is eugenics.

    They certainly shouldn't be allowed to vote, perhaps 90 rather then 100. Children are another matter.

    I find the combination of your question and the picture posted to be offensive. Just saying. If a person can give informed consent to have sex, they should not be prevented from having a child.

    Should people with an IQ over 100 be restricted to only 1 child?

    You do know that an IQ of 100 is average, which means that half of all people fall below 100? Now if you are referring to parents with a combined score of less than 100 that is something else. (To what degree of mental handicap or retardation should we allow people to become parents.)

    Also do we take the average of the two parents? Or do both parents have to exceed 100?

    I personally don't think that IQ score is a good qualifier for parenthood.

    It's a fact of life and a right endowed by their creator. What they should not be allowed to do is vote and think the President is going to buy their gas or pay their mortgage or some other "hope and change" dribble.

    OTHER: unfortunately even smart people that reproduce aren't always going to have smart kids or be good parents. Sometimes the dumber one are decent parents or have smart kids. Though I have often though certain people shouldn't be allowed to have kids.
