Yes, there should be a limit on how many children people have based on a few things. Some things being money, and how much time they have to offer a child, or children.
This gives the next generation the best possible chance. Not to mention it also helps prevent parents from thinking they can handle a certain amount of children then later proves otherwise.
Oh, and need I mention welfare?
Considering the current state of humanity, yes, definitely. Earth cannot support much more of humans, you might not see it now but hundreds of years from now with the current growing population... Earth will be wearied out and will slowly begin dying. If something will not be done, we will literally breed ourselves to death. There are more factors than just overpopulation but this is the main problem.
This is social authoritarianism at its worst! Bans on the fundamentals of human life, and the propagation of that life, are, in my opinion, among the most heinous of restrictions.
To assert that the government knows best in regards to raising a family and should hold precedence over the parents themselves is absurd!
No they shouldn't limit the number of kids that they have. You can have as many kids as you want as long as you know how to handle the ammount of kids that you are going to have. I have watched 19 kids and counting and the Duggars can take care of all 19 kids in the house.

Some people don't know how many children they can handle until it's too late.

... That's a TV show. Not the best example of realistic families. Also I"m sure the money they get from the publicity is extremely helpful in raising their children. Something most people aren't as lucky to get.
People are already not reproducing as prolifically as they ought to! Those few people who have more than 1 child, and then that dreadful 80% of a child, are to be praised, not ostracized! If somebody wishes to have a whole child, not .8 of one, such ought to be allowed!
Seriously, though, a lack of reproduction is hurting us. The family with a dozen children is doing more for our future than the family with only one. That is, if they are white. Other races are doing a lot better than us (Caucasians) at maintaining their race.
How could you possibly say that? There are more than 7 billion people on this planet and resources are already becoming strained and pollution destroying nature(our actual home, not the concrete prison). Smaller amounts of children would save the planet and I think that's a little more important than a race, which could benefit from there being a little less of by the way.

'Cause it is true.
There are more than 7 billion people on this planet
And someday there may be 7 billion more!
resources are already becoming strained
Legalize hemp and we'll boost our resourcefulness a hundredfold (well, a lot).
pollution destroying nature
Nature can be revivified.

A culture cannot sustain itself with too few inheritors.

Thoughts are irrelevant. I deal in fact.
which could benefit from there being a little less of by the way.
Are you advocating genocide?! Security! Please show this racial supremacist the door!
Many of the worlds nations are going through issues with their economy. If we would try and inforce this it would just make spending go up.
Possible if needed to control Earth's expansion, but if we needed to do that i say we go and start reasearching space technology and colonise elsewhere.
