YES! Yes they should!! But then that gets into a whole mess of what the licensing requirements should be and who approves them and who decides what makes a good parent... And how do you keep people from having children without licenses... It ends up being scary either way.
This book was a great collection of essays from several viewpoints on the topic and gave me a lot of profound over-the-(TV-)dinner-(tray-)table conversations with my husband.
