Who thinks ppl should have limited amounts if kids??

Posted by   + Show Post
Just a thought that came to mind and wanted to know your guys' opinions. Lol frankly the population isn't getting any smaller unless an apocalypse does happen. Lol I think ppl should only have up to two kids.

I think people should have as many kids as they want as long as they can afford them without PA. However, if you decide to have a buttload of kids do not even think of complaining to me. lol I probably will end up being a bit curt.

I am on #3 and plan on a 4th and final in the future. My kids are 6 yrs apart and I plan on keeping it that way.

This.

Quoting GOBryan:

I think people should have as many kids as they want provided that they can care for them on their own, without being a career P.A. recipient.

I agree with you. I don't think you're a bad person if you have more than two children however...it's not very socially conscious. Oh well.

So you want to follow China's example? Those who don't comply gets a forced abortion?
I think more education about our depleting resources and allowing free access to birth control would help.
I also want to add that people in different areas consume more or less of resources based on what's available. A family of 7 in the poorest areas of Africa would use way less compared to the average 4 person U.S. family

I think so long as they can provide for their kids and not rely on welfare, as well as have time for all of them then they should be able to have however many they want.

Who are you going to "fix"? Mom or dad?
Let's say dad. Guy has a baby with a young lady and then they break up. He finds the love of his life, marries, and has another baby. Do we "fix " him? And now lady with her hubby only gets to have 1?
Or maybe it's mom. So dad can go out and have 2 kids with 87 different women... He gets to have 174 kids but us ladies only get 2 max?
It's a ridiculous suggestion that will only lead to secrecy, inadequate medical care, and murder (just look at Chinese girls getting left to die because it would screw up the families quota!) the whole argument is ludicrous!

I'd love to see people limit themselves, but population limit laws are likely to have bad consequences. Having a license required would help. Also anyone proven abusive or neglectful to the children they already have should be sterilized so they can't have more.

Quoting PinkParadox:

As a side note, I also think you should have to take classes and acquire a license to have each child. Some people obviously should not be parents.
