Now there's a reason, Kimberly, and I would think that, if your son's physician ordered the procedure, there should be no reason to refuse.

We had a case like that at my HS. The couple were both developmentally disabled, great kids, but no idea what the consequences of their actions would be. The grandparents ended up raising the baby.

Have you explained the concerns that you have regarding pregnancy and their ability to care for a child, should that occur? I can most definitely understand your reasoning, and, in this case agree with your desire. I would talk to my regular family physician and ask them to order the procedure, and refer you to a specific practitioner with the order.

I think Eden raises a good point. Do you have legal guardianship over him to be able to make this decision?

THanks for your support and understanding guys! The urologist isvery reluctant to do it and wants a second opinion and I am afraid that they will be hitting a stone wall. I am waiting fo get the referral to the second urologist. Please say a prayer for us. Take care.

Do you have legal guardianship over him? Or the legal right to make medical decisions for him? Is this part of the problem you are having in getting the procedure done, or are you having problems finding a doctor to perform the procedure?

My son who is autistic, has normal sexual urges. He has a girlfriend, who is also autistic and we found them with her on top of my son making out. If I had not found them they would have probably had sex and then who knows. Neither of them is capable of taking care of themselves let alone a baby. She is on the pill but no one is there to supervise her in taking it and I cannot rely on either one of them to follow through oncontraception. This is a major problem with autistic adults and usually not spoken of.

Why do you want your adult son to be sterilized?

I'm doubting that you will find a doctor willing to do so. They will not perform a TL or hysterectomy on a young lady either.

Does your son want a vasectomy?
