Many folks I work with think the globe's population is the elephant in the room--the overwhelming cause of pressures on our world's resources and obstacle to preventing global climate change. I think we can do more than refrain from personally contributing more children to the planet.
It's well documented that as standard of living increases, family size decreases. So wouldn't it make sense to work ever harder to help raise families out of poverty?
And wouldn't it make sense to make family planning services more widely available? Even if our government won't, what keeps us from opening our checkbooks?
