Responsible enough to have a child but not responsible enough to vote.

Comment 29th July 2010

I think it is rediculous that 16 year olds can legally have children, however they cannot get a tattoo, give blood or vote. In my opinion you should be able to vote either before or at the same age as you can legal have sexual intercourse (and become pregnant). This either means reducing the voting age or increasing the sexual intercourse age, the later idea I know would be pointless now!

Why does this matter?

Because I am dumbfounded by the message our country is conveying – you need more responsibility and wisdom to vote than to raise a child. It is simply untrue.
