I just think it's weird that people can have kids no matter what their situation, but people looking to adopt have to do a bunch of stuff to prove they are worthy of raising kids. Thoughts?

Well that would take care of the population growth. We adopted through the state and we had to prove we could afford it with check stubs, bank records, and tax records. We had to pass a physical. We had to have our home inspected and everything had to be to code. They even measured the height of our step (one step) up to the house because it had to be under 8 inches. We had to have references from family and friends AND those people had to be interviewed. Plus we had several interviews both together and separate to make sure our stories matched. We had to do an extensive family history. Had to prove we had insurance on everything. He had to take 11 weeks of parenting classes. And be fingerprinted. I'm willing to bet most people would not subject themselves to all that before having a child. And even if they did, how many could pass.
