In 1978 China established the One-Child Policy restricting married urban couple to having only one child. The reason for implementing this policy was to help control the harmful effects on biodiversity from the over population.
If we don’t begin to control human population as individuals with the use of birth control, or other means necessary, one day the freedom of having as many children as you like may be taken away from the rest of the world as well.
