Accidental Americans

...the U.S. automatically confers citizenship to the children of U.S. citizens,
even if they are born abroad, and with that comes the obligation to file taxes.

Yes, very true and one of the things I had to consider as a parent of an "accidental American". But I decided to enroll him any way, that way when he reaches 18 it is his choice as to which country he chooses to pay his membership fees to. As a matter of semantics, I guess we're all accidental Americans, as Columbus "discovered" the "Americas" by accident. Another thought, my sister has a bumper sticker which reads: Drive carefully 90 percent of people are caused by accident.

Abram : I`m wondering if it depends on what year he was born as to whether he has a choice at 18 . I know that for some years kids could get US citizenship by just applying , other years the child had a choice when turning 21 .

By the way great posting , Im now scrambling to get more info as this affects my extended family .

Great rebound on Accidental Children...

I read a article which said AcCiDeNtaL? children born...."baby humans".....that is.....were as follows:

A Studied that stated 20 some or more percent of married couples that had babies were not planed.....

Also that 20% or more babies were not not married couples..

Not accounting Abortions..

So in essence the Question arises that it's possible that 1/2 of the total population or more people where just accidents!

HAVE YOU BEEN purposed or just an AcCiDeNt?
