The popularity of fertility drugs and IVF have made multiple births the norm, but guess what --there's NO more room on Earth for everyone to have triplets and now octuplets!
The people over at Population Connection make an excellent point: It's time to control the population number.
We talked with the Director of Population Connection, Brian Dixon, to get the facts on U.S. population growth. Dixon tells us the Population Connection believes "every women around the world should have the opportunity to make their own choices for themselves and their family. There are 400,000 unwanted births a year and right now we have 300 million people in this country and by 2050 we will topping 400 million."
Dixon also says that "Population growth has a negative impact on everyone and everything on the earth and strains resources around the world."
What do you think about population control? Has it changed how you feel about having children?
