All those in favor of depopulating the planet: You First!
Yes indeed. I'm among the first who did it. I'm voluntarily sterilized. Now, you turn.
Many men and women on this planet are brainwashed to believe that "they have to breed" and that "their biological watch is ticking". Nothing can be more far from the truth. Humans are not animals - we don't have to breed.
We need to have our minds to control our bodies - not our bodies to control our minds.
Children are a choice.
humans are animals and are driven by the same instincts. we have evolved so we dont just go around shagging one another, but we are still driven by those desires to procreate. every living thing procreates or dies.
I cant believe anyone would voluntary get sterilized. Surely it's about education in contraception and safe sex. education in how to be a better parent
children are a gift, unfortunately I cant ever have children and I feel this with great sadness , I see the joy that kids bring to peoples lives. Life would be very lonely without family. when the shtf they are all you have.

Easy; Introduce a temporary Global Law that forbiddes people to have kids. A few years later, the population would have decreased drastically.
Do you really think a law making sex illegal would work? You do realize that people break the law everyday....
Also, getting a law like that passed would not be easy at all. Certainly impossible world wide. Also how would it be enforced? Are we going to create a group of sex police to arrest people who have sex?
What happens if they do get pregnant? What happens to the baby? What happens if they manage to hide long enough to give birth? What do we do with the child? Do we kill it or let it live?
When the jail system becomes full will we have to build a camp to contain them all? What happens then?
Bottom line is people are not going to stop having sex. That is just not going to happen whether it is illegal or not.
Still think it is simple? It is not.
