I think an Advanced older Alien society may have strict laws planet wide to protect the long term survival and health of their species. The right to breed will not be a free for all for everyone, but a privilege earned either academically or physically or a mixture of the both, and strict quotas will be enforced.
In this way, evolution will continue as only top achievers will be putting their genes into the gene pool. Instead of taking pills to avoid birth, medication or some other procedure would be earned and given to allow breeding.
You're looking at it as if they are at least somewhat similar to us, but the possibilities are limitless. Even the simplest details of another life-form could be something that is completely unimaginable to us.
Even the simple laws of physics which many humans believe to be universal, may be completely different from the way that nature works on another Planet, in another Galaxy,
in another Universe
I just don't see how any of us could accurately describe solutions when absolutely nothing is known about the life-forms themselves, or about the World in which they may live.
As distasteful as the topic of eugenics is, population control will have to be seriously faced one day by humanity. It is very good and well to proudly acclaim choice for the individual, but that is an ideal. There is a limit as to how many can be supported on earth while preserving the biosphere.
Migrating to habitable planets if space flight is available is one solution, but such planets are likely to have their own life. Do we exterminate and conquer to allow for an ever expanding population?
lways amusing when these subjects come up and people assume that intelligent extra-terrestrial civilizations will have the same concept of morality and the ideas about it as we do.
The aliens are either good or evil, right?

With all due respect, all this is speculation.
Equal or similar results could be obtained by having a science fiction movie marathon.
Are you ever on topic? You must come from a country where women are not allowed to speak much, so you use the internet to just mouth off any airhead idea that comes to you!!! He never once said this was not speculation and u come in with your usual bitter tone and pop off with a scifi movie marathon,,, Your avatar is disturbing as well, i know that's a picture of you, and you can really see how cold and bitter you are.
