Should there be a limit to the amount of children one family should have in the US?


We know in some countries like China the government tells people the amount of children to have. Should we look into that for America?

    Agreed. I have seven, six still living and intend to have a least three more--with my wife of course. I would hate to be told that I could not have more because of a law preventing it.

    There should be reasonable constraints. Many children are born into poverty because people have MORE children than they can reasonably afford. Birth control should be mandatory.

    If a couple exceeds that limit, what would the penalty be. Would you take the child away, levy a tax, prison--the concept is totally without logic. It takes a lot of work to take care and teach many children, but many families are up to the task.

    Having children should be a privilege, not a right.So many people think this way,having children unthinkingly w/o considering the financial, emotional,& psychological ramfications of parenthood. Our prisons & juvenile systems are filled w/t h

    It is not social engineering. Intelligent/educated people are having small families because they realize the benefits. Yes, birth control should be mandatory so that all children can have a BETTER quality of life.

    Totally agree, 1-4 is enough for both the sake of the child, parents, and the environment. Children need parental attention & best opportunites. 1-4 children per family is best overall for these things.
