Would you personally agree not to have children if it would keep the world and its people healthy? What would be a just way to curtail reproduction? The Human population is always growing, and our world has limited resources. The more depleted our resources become, the more urgently we need to limit our own growing numbers. If it were up to you, who would have children and who wouldn't? How would you decide? I'm especially interested to hear from young people who haven't (yet) had any kids, but I encourage anyone with a good idea to share it.

That idea is one the most monstrous and dictatorial notions I have ever heard of. Who has the rightful authority to regulate reproduction? Certainly no human power.
May you never come to any position of authority. You lack basic morality.
Perhaps. Perhaps it is far worse to excede one's carrying capacity of the world and to go on while we deplete tomorrow resources. My idea would prevent wars, famine, malnutrition and the death of potentially billions of souls.
You are fighting an imaginary war, brought to a frenzy radical idealists. The earth is not overpopulated. Better management of current resources and better planning for future production would be more worth the time.
