No, not yet. But the time will come that this world will be extremely overpopulated. Overpopulation means lack of jobs, lack of food, increase in health diseases.

But, I do think that extensive family planning promotions should be imposed.Especially on third world countries.


Yeah, it's family planning...and not like the 2 child or one child policy...
what if this was implemented on my country

I think...the policy requires to only have 2 children and when it becomes
more than that, they wouldn't offer as much benefits as to a family that only has 2 children.
The more the children the less benefits.

And people should not require a law that would make life more complicated.

Yeah there should be a law for limiting birth since we r going into a population booooomm!!!
Food prices are rising...houses are more expensive now...yet salaries never rise!

Even if we had population control, I'd be a rebel, I'd have more than one child =D
The world is getting in a tragedy and everybody should be worried about having children. If you want to have a child, you better frickin be ready

I love how everyone complains about a nonexistent overpopulation problem A lot of the countries that have highly dense populations are shrinking (Mainly Japan and European nations) I would say the lazy people who suck off of the government are more of a detriment to society than someone having more than average children.

well, depends on what country are you talking about to enforce the law of limiting child birth.

for countries like Canada/Germany where birth rates here are only 13/1000 people per year, and our baby boomers are going to retire in like five~ten years...

No, limiting birth rate would kill our economy ~_~ (there'll be a lot more jobs - pro ones probably - in the near future, 'cause of the amount of people that are going to retire in both america and Canada, but Ameirca doesn't have a birth rate problem- you guys have a lot of people already- on the other hand; Canada only have a total population of around 33million people @__@; keep in mind we're the 2nd biggest country on Earth)

so yeah, limiting birth rate would be STUPID for the Canadian Government to do; on the other hand, the government is actually going to change the benefits of being a mother and make more people want to start a family x_x

but for countries like China and India, Birth rate control is already there, but it can't be helped there at some areas, because people adore boys too much @__@,

in some chinese villages , if your first born is a DAUGHTER, you're allowed to have another one - but if that one is a girl too; too bad. But if you're in the city, and you have a child and then get a 2nd one (regardless of Gender) you'll have to pay the government 30,000$ (thats' a lot for most People) and most likely you'll be fired from your company and such...its cruel

My grandmother use to told me, when the Birth Control plan thing was just new, people in her village, (some) when ever there is a check up from the government, they would throw away their "baby"(mostly girls) (0 months~ 4 years old) near the river, hope if they're lucky someone will go and adopt them as their own or whatever, but people only take guys(not all neither)....you can imagine for your self...what happens to the rest on a chilly night near the river, alone...X_X

No I do not believe so. I think the problem would be because of uneven distribution. For example, China and India have the densest populations in the world and they aren't the biggest piece of land in the world , whereas america is so large and yet has far less population then them. If humans were to spread out evenly on the world below the land holding capacity, with enough consideration for agriculture<food> and land density, I dont think that it would pose a problem. Furthermore there is a split between developed countries and developing or yet-to-develop countries. For the former, most countries are facing an ageing population problem as there are not enough childbirths, yet for the latter 2 situations, there is a surplus of childbirths. See the picture?

this law is already implemented in china. over population is another reason for global warming... then for me, yes, a law must be required.

That's why our population would reach 7 billion in 2013. India or China have enough people to go around.

With overpopulation means that there'd be less jobs available, so naturally, there'd be more jobless people. Not to mention homeless people too. The elderly would also increase, and whether you like it or not, the government's going to have to support them.

I say just stop it from the source.

Honestly, it isn't the governments responsibility to provide for the poor and old. I believe in small government that exists for law, defense, education, and peace. Anything any government does is a complete waste, billions and billions of dollars are wasted in beurocracy on social services. It shouldn't be the governments responsibility to hand out welfare checks to people who can work, it shouldn't be the governments responsibility to take care of the elderly. The government should only take care of the disabled, and those who genuinely cannot work. If we had small governments, the individuals would have more freedoms and power over their lives, lower taxes, and can do what the want with their money to secure a retirement, instead of a government taking it your whole life and giving back to you what they see fit (social security is just stupid imo) Even with 6.5 billion people, the population of the earth's land is only 45 people per square km. The mean population density of the world is 330 persons per square km. The main issue would be exhausting resources, but science is making strives towards renewable resources (ethanol and water powered vehicles) It's up to the nations to move from fossil fuels and move towards renewable energy, but oil politics won't allow that to happen right now.
