Judge's unusual order to man with nine kids: Stop procreating
By Andrew Mach, NBC News
A Wisconsin judge has ordered a man who owes $90,000 in child support after fathering nine children with six women to not have any more kids, at least for now.
Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Sommers said Curtis owes about $50,000 in back child support, plus another $40,000 in interest to the mothers, the Journal Times reported.

Is it the public's business when someone's private life activities start to cost more money in tax increases?
While not specifically resulting a tax increase, what about
Drinking and driving
Owning, but never using, an assault weapon
Dumping or burying hazardous waste on their own property
Maintaining 20 barking dogs in your back yard
The point is that many things we do in private life also affect the public around us, and when it does those private activities may need to be curtailed. In this case that defendant was producing offspring that society feels needs to be fed, clothed and housed while refusing to do so. He is affecting other people with private activities that need to be curtailed so as to end that effect.
Sterilization might be a better sentence though...
