The point is, that women do not have the ability to chose the number of children they have, short of the moment they get fixed, as birth control options are not efficient and even dangerous for most of them. [edit on 1-2-2009 by mystiq]

population control is not moral, in my opinion.
no one has the right to determine how many children an individual or couple may have unless having those children infringes on our rights in some way.

Edward O Wilson, the famed biologist, has noted that everywhere in the world women have had the personal freedom to choose, (including the freedom from religious oppression) AND have also had access to birth control birth rates have fallen to around 2.5 children per woman. When women ARE given freedom, and education, and access to birth control, as inadequate and messy as it currently is, large numbers of women are choosing NOT to be mindless breeders and carers of children.

You LITERALLY want to cut into the bodies of fertile women to control your society.
