Many bred animals are faced with culling as practice to strengthen the herd and to allow the entire species to survive. Many new pieces of media are focusing on the the problem of overpopulation that humanity is currently faced with. We're draining our natural resources and will eventually run out. Mass starvation, war, etc. It's hard to say one life is worth more than another and where do you draw the line... but thoughts? I do believe overpopulation is indeed a problem. I also believe some people should not be allowed to have children. I believe giving birth should be a PRIVILEGE and not a given right. Not all people are appropriate parents and may not raise a child properly. If there were guidelines to giving birth only those who truly wanted it would actually raise a child. No more abandonment, poor child-rearing, etc. Of course defining those guidelines would have to be left to better minds than myself. Regulating it would be an entirely different matter. Government controlled vasectomies at birth? I don't think there should be mass genocides, but war has always been one way of human population control. I feel that we're fated to another world wide war if things don't shape up. As resources become scarcer and scarcer... well everyone for themselves, right? Not saying I believe in that sentiment, but anyone can look at history and see that humans rarely change. I love people, but I kind of hate us as a whole honestly. We need to shape up.
