    Actually, our birth rates in the US and in western Europe are already too low.

    The USA should not adopt a program to limit the number of children a couple can have to reduce overpopulation.

    You mean like they had in China for many years? A 'One Child Policy', with big fines for couples who had two or more.

    I think it depends on what city or cities you are in. Because the overpopulation thing is more hype than people realize. Should they limit adoption of children and make sure, said foster and adoptive parents can handle, raise, feed, shelter, and clothe said child or children, of course. But I also think it is on the biological parents to give their children to good, decent, and well off people if possible. As well as make sure they won't be too much of a burden on an area or try their best to.

    Just wondering why this is in the adoption section.  No, it hasn't worked very well in China with their one-child policy as women can and do have twins, etc there for example.b

    It's not necessary. The most effective means of reducing population is to a) ensure that as many people as possible have sufficient opportunities for education and gainful employment (girls and women in particular), and b) encourage widespread use of birth control through education, accessibility, affordability, and effectiveness. The more reasons people have to avoid unplanned/poorly timed pregnancy and the better means they have to do it successfully, the fewer children people tend to have. Women who have strong education/career aspirations will be strongly motivated to avoid pregnancy until timing is better, and men who know they will be held accountable for children they create will also generally be more careful.

    Of course, social conservatives know this, and it's exactly why they have are so vehemently opposed to easily available birth control, abortion, education, and social programs that help struggling families. The conservative worldview is dependent on maintaining a perpetual underclass, and educated people who are in control of their life choices are harder to exploit. Contrarily, uneducated people with little economic opportunity who have minimal control over the paths their lives take are very easy to exploit, and those in power will do it without remorse. In fact, they go to great pains to actively blame the vulnerable for their own situations, to abdicate themselves of any responsibility to help their fellow human beings.

    What's really needed is a national parenting test prior to having children to cut down on abused, neglected, abandoned, and born drug-addicted / mentally impaired kids that someone else has to care for. Never gonna happen, though.

    No. Our birth rate is already in the basement.

    If you want to live in a totalitarian state, maybe China will have you.

    Somehow I don't think this is a problem in the US or anywhere else in the western world.
