Should Human Reproduction be Limited To No More Than One Offspring Per Person?
Human reproduction should be limited to no more than 1 offspring per person.
Producing one child per person would lower the global human population over time, meaning a gradual decrease in resource consumption.
Curbing reproduction is more humane and ethical than other forms of population control.
This formula would allow for two children per couple, meaning there is less chance of parents ending up childless in old age should an accident or illness strike their offspring.
Families with fewer children are often better off financially than those with many mouths to feed.
It's immoral to regulate reproductive rights in any capacity.
The US has a fertility rate of
1.8 births per female
, which is similar to many other advanced economies. Limiting reproduction seems like a solution in search of a problem.
If this were to become government policy, it would be incredibly difficult to regulate.
Couples who are poor and/or have limited access to birth control would be disadvantaged.
In places with currently high population growth, a sudden introduction of this policy would result in population ageing and economic stagnation.
