Interesting topic, Gev. I have finished having children, 2 was enough, both in terms of what my then husband and I could afford financially and we felt that we really only should replace ourselves on the planet - it would be hypocritical to worry about the environment and then contribute to overpopulation. (This is not a criticism of people who have large families, it is up to each couple/individual to make up their own minds.)

None of what you have told me would have changed my mind. It is true that a lot of countries have a declining birthrate. A glitch in this is that the number of babies born in Australia per woman has actually increased slightly over the last year. The general consensus about the reasons for this is that our government has introduced a "baby bonus", which is just what it sounds like - you get a payment of several thousand dollars for having a baby. I missed out on this, because it is a recent development and my youngest child is 15.

The falling birthrate you speak of is just a drop in the bucket. This planet cannot go on sustaining so many billions of people forever. If anything, the vast number of people is more likely to cause our decline, rather than a falling birthrate. People have been aware of this since the 1970s at least - that's when I first heard about it anyway.

As for the people whom you know personally who are choosing not to reproduce, it is highly possible that they will change their minds as they get older and their biological clocks start ticking.
