Should birth control be applied?

I think a 3 kids per couple limit would be cool . I think it would be easy to implement, as well.

I think it depends.

If people genuinly want children then no, if the world continues to increase in population at the current rate then maybe in 20 years something will need to be done.

Isnt something like this already in place in china?

10,000 babies go 'missing' each year?

Depends where you live, it would be stupid in most of the Western world where populations are aging and fertility levels are low. Not to mention the moral considerations...

From a policy perspective, I doubt it would be easy to implement as a straight 'ban', some sort of disincentive programme like China has may work.

figures.

if fertility was limited to 2 children per woman, the human population would be down to 1.6 billion in 2100 and about 500 million by 2150. sauce: vienna institute of demography, austrian academy of sciences.

that leaves a lot more room for the rest of us.

'Born control' sounds like a hardcore band. Do you need some guitar monkey to tell you the proper term?

edit: sorry, didn't realize that you might not be a native english speaker.

And the population of Western Europe would barely exist...
Edit: Ouch that would destroy economies too! We'd need lots of robots!

No, that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard. If someone has a fourth, what are you going to do? Throw it in the river? Give it to someone else?

western europe is developed. i doubt most of it has more than three children per woman anyway. and the economy would scale down as the human population was reduced. if you only have to make cars for 500 million people, you dont have to make as many cars, and you dont need as many people making cars.

and we would all have twelve times the room.

Maybe if mormons didn't think that they have to have tons of babies to get into heaven population wouldn't be an issue. Also, if all those Indians and Chinese stopped reproducing so much the population wouldn't be such an issue. Also, if people actually used birth control the population wouldn't be such an issue. Let's all live like in the book, Brave New World!

Yea, but the last thing you would want to do in the West is discourage having children. It wouldn't work like that, you would lose economies of scale and have horrendously high labour costs. It would be hard to produce very much at all. Not to mention, most of that population would be in the Western world and would be old, someone has to pay for lots of old people... However, I broadly agree there is merit in slowing population growth developing countries.

I can't see how it would be implemented but it sounds like a good idea.

I mean this country is ridiculously overpopulated and I don't mean to be racist but it's often Middle-Eastern or African families that come over and have 5+ kids.

I think they should limit the amount of babies unatractive people can have, other than that its sick and wrong

Naw, civil liberties baby. Although I DO think that, if these fucking idiots don't realize that we're crowding the planet and start having less children, then we won't last very much longer.

Population in Western Europe is already decreasing.

That's why retirement age is increasing and pensions are decreasing.

And they're also getting foreign workers from Eastern Europe to replace the shortage of workers already (hello purpose of EU expansion).

Also, don't families drown their female babies in China because they want a male child (so they can help with work)?

They should make potential parents do tests to decide wether their allowed to have kids, that would hopefully stop idiots from breeding. Although for that to work they would also have to reversibly steralize all kids at birth

The human population would be extinct by 2050.

This reminds me of a book called Among the Hidden. Basically it was about a country where the government completely controlled your life, including how many children you could have (which was 2). It centered around a kid who was a third child, and his life was basically a living hell. He couldn't go outside or make noise. If he was caught by the government he would be shot.

Not counting the family on welfare that seems to have about 10 kids that every community seems to have, I'd say no.

Well if we did make a child limit, then we'd be like China, and China are the second mot hated country on Earth at the moment, the first being America. But, then again, there are far to many people on this planet and I would like to find a way of seriously reducing the population; ugh, it seems like it will have to be genocide.

I'm planning to rid the world of fat people, stupid people and vegetarians; that will free up much space.
