Legislating family size

Improving ability of governments to regulate family size
Enforced contraception
Forcing use of family planning
Regulating population growth

Enacting laws which limit people's freedom to reproduce.


In an over-populated world only government intervention in family planning will stem the tide.

Counter Claim:

It is not widely agreed that any government may intrude upon the individual's choice to reproduce as they wish. Consequently, such legislation is very difficult to enforce.
