I think your all paying too much attenion to the kid facts, not 100% of the kids will have disabilities. :L You need to actully read up on how common disabilities are among normal people.

Ugh ugh ugh. Disgusting. It`s just wrong. I don`t care how old you were when you met, if I`m told that someone is my biological brother, I will NOT have sex with them. Ever.

Incest is really not a good thing. Anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot. On a biological level, we`re not supposed to feel any attraction towards siblings because to mate with them would lead to negative repercussions with their offspring.

Rather, biologically we were built to mate with those having as many genetic differences as possible. Genetic diversity strengthens the survivability of a species.

I agree that they shouldnt be allowed to punish them since their incestious activites arent "socially harmful" as the video put it.
But i think the having kids was a little wierd, since chances are they knew the odds of having abnormal children.

On one hand, everyone deserves to be happy.

On the other hand, though, there could be serious repercussion for their children.

But, I don`t think that they see themselves as brother and sister, since they didn`t meet until they were teenagers. Since they grew up in completely different worlds, without knowing about each other, I suppose they just consider themselves lovers, and nothing else. Though I can`t speak on their behalf...

I can`t believe you guys. Pretty soon fathers are going to start boning their daughters, and mothers going to start screwing their own son. But if they`re in love, then its ok.

I personally believe incest to be wrong. The genetic issues are reason enough to constrain yourself; love isn`t an unstoppable force. If it was, Angelina Jolie wouldn`t be able to go outside without getting raped. O.o
I`ve heard of worse, though. There was that one dude who was in a relationship with his mom. They had a daughter who wanted to call her brother "daddy". Makes me sick. >.<

Tsk and they say only the southern U.S. has incest problems. Eat it Europe! At least the U.S. only screws cousins :p

Seriously though, wow. I honestly don`t know what to think. Maybe they should be allowed to have kids and what not, let nature take its course. After several generations of incest they will all be sterile so society won`t have to worry about it and the sibling/couples can live their life the way they want.

If you actually read the bible, then you would know that in Leviticus Chapter 18 and 20, incest is condemned. It also condemns gays. People need to stop using the Bible as saying what it says is ok.

Of course in the New Testament, Jesus says let the old law be forgotten, the new law is to just love one another.

The bible is a good read, it gives you incredible insight on what religious cooks believe. Unfortunately, these days people on both sides just pick and choose.

It`s not that I disagree with their love, but I disagree with them having children of their own. I know that may not seem entirely fair, but the risks of having a child with a disability is too high for me to think it`s okay. I don`t think any one should have a child if they know that the chances of that happening are much too high.
But they can love and screw all they want for all I care.

who cares? Thay aren`t hurting anybody. Incest was actually very common among royalty centuries ago. Incest was even in the Bible and no one condemned it then. IT`s just regular people who claimed that incest is "Wrong" just because it`s taboo. Yes their can be genetic effects but those usually never ever ever happen until I believe about 4 generations of breeding. Having a few children in an incestous relationship isn`t really horrible, it`s only if those children start doing it and then theirs start doing it and etc,etc,etc,.

Would I do it? Probably not. But then again, I don`t have a brother.

@ notallowed
its not "wrong" to give birth to a child knowing they will be born with a "birth defect" as you so eloquently put it. It disgusts me that you`d think that. Its actually more wrong to have the abortion and take away a life just because you want a "normal child" than to knowingly have a child that maybe born with such problems.

the view you`ve shared is ignorant and not one that we need on i-a-b.

that`s really creepy but i don`t know why would anybody care..they`re both adults and its consensual, it should be their business.
about the children with birth defects, its not uncommon for people to knowingly produce unhealthy children. there are many tests that can detect birth defects in the early stages of the pregnancy and yet people decide to go trough with the pregnancy and not have an abortion, and although its wrong, they don`t get punished for it, these folks shouldn`t be either.

I am fine with people doing what they want to do, and I am ok with their relationship. But due to the fact the risk of children being born with birth defects is high among couples who are blood related, I think that it should be illegal for them to have children. Way I see it is a) they can adopt a child if they really want a kid and b) no retarded/ physically disabled child needs to be brought into this world just becuse his/her parents were too lazy to find a partner who is not blood related to them.


I also too think that if you want to hook up with a relative then you need some psychological testing

lol, was it just me who laughed at the doctors hair cut, it was funny hehehehe.

The should be able to do it, I think that they should have gotten a sperm donor or something just so their children wernt born with defects, but then it already happened so yea. I think its just like gay people, some people hate them and they can be socially unacceptable (to some, I dont want to offend anyone) but they`re happy right? They should be able to do it.

"I could really care less about if the brother and sister do love each other, I just don`t like that they are producing children knowing that they are going to have birth defects, now that I think is wrong."

You COULD care less? Then why don`t you? You already care a little bit don`t you? And that`s too much for you?

Wow, I`m surprised at the overwhelming responses from the younger set in here. The vast majority believe this is not a society problem. The types of birth defects mentioned refer specificly to children from inbreeding. We stopped inbreeding livestock and pets 100 years ago for a reason. Not to mention the religious stance on this. I`m just surprised at the passive posts on here.

I don`t really care if they want to be together. I do take issue with the fact that they are knowingly bringing children into the world. Children who not only will likely be born with mental and physical disabilities, but the social stigma of being the product of incest will follow them for the rest of their lives. I think that is unfair to their kids.

*coughs into hand* I am from Arkansas, my mom and dad, and from what I know of there families have never had incest in them at all, BUT each, and everyone of my siblings have a disability, May it be learning, speech, or body involved. {I personally have a hip problem that needs be corrected when my growth plates stop growing.}

Disabilities are a hit, and miss thing, How do we know the type of disabilities these kids will have?

Learning disabilities can be with hard work, overcame. Look wise/body wise disabilities, with surgery some can be hopped over...

But quite frankly. 50% chance is about the same as any normal person`s chances of having a disability. Incest used to be done by millions back in the day. In Mythology, and so much more. {Even sex with animals was done/ rumored to have been done.}

Incest is not a sure fire way to kill the genepool, And NO ONE will know for sure unless you study four or five generations of people. Has anyone done a `real` study of incest ki

This IS the government`s concern. When the odds of genetic defects are that high, and they are popping out one kid after another, I wonder who is going to pay for all those issues, not to mention it is very unfair to the children. If this becomes an accepted practice, who knows where it might lead. There is a reason we have banned polygamy in the US, sometimes it`s better not to let people do whatever the hell they want.

Seriously though, what the hell does it matter? If they aren`t harming anyone, it`s their business. Their kids could have problems even if they weren`t related already. Lots of kids have birth defects. You deal with it, it`s life. The government needs to mind its own damn business and let them live their lives.

I think they should be allowed to be together. It`s their choice, and how can the government say they can`t just because it makes others go "eeew"?

Yeah, thinking of the sex is really gross, and thinking that they`re *related* is gross... But it makes them happy, they *both* consent, I don`t see the problem.

It`s like saying that you can`t be with the person you`re with for whatever reason. And I don`t care, but I wouldn`t let the government tell me I can`t be with the guy I`m with now.

However, I don`t know that they should be allowed to have children. Fix one of them, and maybe do artificial insemination with a different donor instead, so we`re not worrying about birth defects or disabilities.

Gross.... if you want to argue that those two being together isn`t socially harmful, fine, let them be together. But, incestuous couples producing children is harmful, so if they want to be together then they should have to voluntarily be fixed. Those should be their choices... stay together and get fixed so you can`t have any more children, or break up and find new lovers (if anyone will have you.)

People are biologically programmed to be unattracted to their siblings. but the fact that two people who didn`t grow up together might be mutually attracted isn`t hard to believe because it`s only at a young age that mechanism kicks in. that being said this is still fubar.

The sex thing, although socially unacceptable, isn`t really `bad` per se.

Having kids however, should be made criminal. Any genetic diseases or genetic risks the siblings have (either active or reccesive) will have an extremely high chance of getting it. It`s like torture on the kid. *That* is unacceptable.

the only i issue i have is the fact that everyone keeps saying to just adopt children if they dont want to run a risk of their kids having disabilities. But honestly guys, did any of you listen to the report? The government took away three of their children, not to mention their relationship is ILLEGAL in the eyes of germany. It is tough enough for a regular law-abiding couple to adopt children in ANY country, forget about a couple that is breaking the law and already had kids taken away.

Actually, it`s everybody`s business. Suppose your son or daughter falls in love and gets married to someone who is the child of one of these incestuous relationships, then their children, i.e., your grand children run a much higher risk of being disabled and harboring a damaged recessive gene. There`s a reason societies the world over have been against incest, dumb asses.

Yea, I`m not gonna tell anyone what they can and can`t do unless it causes someone harm. Wanting biological children though is BLATANTLY and willingly causing someone harm that has absolutely NO way to defend themselves.

At the moment it seems that the best path to take is Incest is fine, just adopt. If you produce a biological child, you get in trouble.

I see nothing wrong with it, Even with kids, I think they should be allowed to love one another despite what the law says, Who are we to judge them? Disabilities are common even without incest. Higher chance or no higher chance. Now at days everyone has ADD, or some learning disability. MOST of which are just made up by the drug makers.

Unstead of saying eww and what not, Why not say. `Good luck` to these two? They truely love one another, and wish to have a family...Of course I`d tell them to LEAVE Germany! Staying there only makes it abit worse. Get married out of the country, stay out of the country, and enjoy life together, with there kids. and family pets.
