The world.is fast filling up with people and over population is becoming a major world wide problem. There is still time to change that however.

To do so, we would have to introduce a mandatory world wide ban on giving birth to children for a period of no less than 50 years. People could still 'have' children but they would have to adopt a child instead.

This would do two things, radically reduce the world population over a 50 year period and ensure that every child in the world had a loving stable family environment.

What are you thoughts, could this work?
