This is a weird one for me. I find that I am often torn. I think that overpopulation is a serious issue. But I also have issues restricting a woman's ability/right to have children.
But then, I have only one child, and that is all I am likely to have, so I may not be the best person to comment.

Forcing anyone to have a baby that they don't feel prepared to care for or forcing women to terminate pregnancies that they want are both huge human rights violations. Regardless of overpopulation issues, affordable, safe, and convenient access to contraception and education on family planning can only make our world a better place. If every couple had only the number of children that they as individuals actually wanted and if adequate medical care was in place to ensure that most of those children would be likely to survive to adulthood, I the global population would be sustainable. As it stands now, it is not sustainable.
I so agree.

I thought it was very thought provoking and made some very valid points regard overpopulation and whether or not it is a myth.
