Is It A Constitutional Right To Procreate?

Do you ever question people who are allowed to have children? I find myself asking this question on a daily basis. Some people aren’t made to be parents. This guy tops the list though, in Ohio, a judge ordered 35-year-old Asim Taylor to “make all reasonable efforts to avoid impregnating a woman.” The father of nine owes nearly $100,000 in unpaid child support payments, and now has been ordered to stop having kids. Apparently the ninth kid is the charm.
People are challenging this ruling wasn’t legal. Some people are calling it ‘unconstitutional’. So this raises the question: Is it a Constitutional right to procreate?

Lay off of the booze and reread your post. If your quote is correct, he wasn't ordered to stop having kids. He was ordered to "take all reasonable steps to avoid ... "
Now, as to the Constitutionality question, it depends on what courts have already said on the subject. Just as privacy isn't specifically mentioned in the Bill of Rights, SCOTUS has held that it is inferred in the 4th Amendment ban on unreasonable searches. The court called it "the right to be left alone." SCOTUS could find the right to procreation in the 1st Amendment (free practice of religion) or the 16th Amendment (equal protection under the law).
On the flip side, procreation may be considered a natural right from god (versus a granted right from government) so government would have no authority to interfere with it.
