The problem is, who decides what qualifies someone for a license, and how do we either prevent or punish someone who breaks the rules? Do we make abortion mandatory if you don't have a license? It isn't practical to regulate reproduction, and even if it was, how could you trust the people making the decision? In the USA, people have largely lost faith in the justice system (from the people I have interacted with) and most countries don't really trust their politicians, so who do you put in charge of the program?

Everyone has the right to have their children but the problem here is that there are dumb people who don't have the responsibility to bring up the child. What's the criteria of being a good parents? It's the mindset of the people that ensures the right upbringing of the children.

it's a eugenic program of sorts

although the long term effect would be positive it would be impossible to implement in a democratic society. people don't vote on things that will take away there rights and freedoms based off some arbitrary rules. the demographic of women who are told they cannot have children will be royally pissed as well as their family,friends etc.
