Education. Teach children that the world is all ready overpopulated, so that they don't get massive families. Also, encourage people to adopt more children. And if there was a more widespread use of condoms, then they're wouldn't be as many unexpected pregnancies.

Side: Yes

Excellently put.

Since mine got downvoted, I'll put yours on top. :)

Side: Yes

As I am prochoice as well as pro sex ed (contraception etc.), I get a really easy answer here.

To me those measures are not unethical.

Side: Yes

Less hate against the gays in this world. Maybe than the gays would not marry into a str8 baby producing family.

Side: Yes

In all of reality how about less education on sex and teach kids it is not OK to have sex until their married. How about we teach kids it is morally wrong to have sex and that no one does it if their not married. How about less sex ed and more actual PE. Every kid I see is a fat ass. I see where physical education money is going to the sex ed classes. Kids need to learn that crap on their own. It is not only uncomfortable for some students but it just promotes sex is normal.

I want to get laid tonight lets have sex and not worry about the possible baby. O last night was fun o fuck I am pregnant and against abortions which is ethical. O fuck lets abort that is unethical.

People get knocked up for the fun of it nowadays. Babies are just an object to most people their not human till they can talk to those that think getting knocked up is fun.

In all cultures where abstinence has been advocated over being horny fucks that are well-equipped with contraceptives, the result is disastrous overpopulation.

Not just historically, in the present day.

Side: No

Sex has been made a game when it was created to be used to give birth. Sex is no longer for getting pregnant. Sex is for play and pleasure. It is personal gain no longer building or helping any relationship other than a sexual one.

Side: No

Yep. Shut down immigration and let Bangladesh, India and China pile up ontop of each other. If they then do nothing about it, that's their problem.

Side: Yes

Better lift your faceguard! It wont let you see what is going on around you! The overpopulation problem is not national, it is WORLDWIDE and effects the WHOLE WORLD! The whole PLANET! Some people are blind in one eye and can't see out of the other!

By the way. The conservative plot to take away health care from millions WILL help "nationally", but then, it will cause MANY abortions before AND after birth, as well as the deaths of the mother! OH, The HYPOCRISY!

The overpopulation problem is not national

I know. That's because we don't have 20 kids like families in other countries. Maybe they should quit breeding while in poverty. My solutions usually deal with people owning their own actions. I know, a novel illiberal idea.

it is WORLDWIDE and effects the WHOLE WORLD

Not really. Kim Jong Un's people are starving, no aide is allowed in, and yet the Earth continues on like magic. We can't save the world. We have millions here to help and worry about.

Kind of like liberal atheists who believe a magic nothing spawned reality from its magical nothingness, believe that taking a knee is patriotic, believe that religion is the problem unless it's Islam killing Westerners in mass, and believe that there are 48 genders? Yes. That's what blindness looks like.

1)Obama took away the healthcare of more people than he gave it to. Many with insurance quit going to the doctor because of high premiums, which is the same as having no insurance. How nice. Paying for something you can't use.

2)Half of those on Obamacare said they'd opt out if it wasn't mandatory to have insurance according to poles.

You can start with yourself. You can refuse to have children, live simply using few resources, and kill yourself relatively young. Maybe make a vlog about it to inspire others to do the same.

Let all babies be born and then drown those we don't like.

As they used to say when I was in school, "keep your thumb on it!"

Well, we knew the thumb wouldn't work but the message was do everything you could to not get her pregnant.

The more I think of it, the idea I had on a previous post was good. Pay a tax on any babies over two, to be paid into a fund to save the planet. Money talks and people don't like taxes, problem solved .... or at least minimized. What'cha think??

The wealthier and more educated a society is, the fewer children they have. Promotion of a more egalitarian society, with an emphasis on education, would bring down the population - or at least the growth of the population.
