The world does in fact need population control, but not by killing people that are already here. I say we take Bob Barkers Advice and Sally Strothers Urgings, and combine them to make an infomercial about thrid world children with the monologue, "for just 60 cents a day, the price of a cup of coffee, you can help prevent the spreading of hunger and poverty in this 3rd world country by sponsoring a child. Your 60 cents can go a long way in having a child spayed or neutered, because no one should be involuntarily brought into a world like this under these conditions. These children did not ask for extreme poverty and hunger, so keep these ignorant people from reproducing at a rate at which they cannot afford!"
Obviously this is targeting only one type of person, so it is not politically correct, but honestly think about it... If people who simply could not afford a child (already living in poverty, or on gov't assistance) were prohibited from reproducing somehow until the conditions changed, there would be less people being brought into the world immediately thrown into poverty and hunger wouldn't that be humane? What about the fact that kids are brought up, they learn values about life, ambition, how to get a job. Do you think it is a coincidence that MOST kids from a 'normal' upbringing continue on to be 'normal' whereas MOST kids that live in poverty continue to live in poverty. You live the life you were brought up to live. **I say MOST, because there are always exceptions, and SOME kids in 'normal' lives make choices that eventually lead to them living in poverty, and some kids living in poverty do make something of themselves (usually it is another mentor of some sort other than their parents that are encouraging their personal and societal development, which further supports the idea)
Sorry if it seems like I dislike 'poor people' but the reality is, some of the people living in poverty choose it. It may not be a direct choice like, "hey, I think I am gonna be poor today" but they make the choice not to get a job, or they chose to do drugs, which messed up their life, etc. It is the ones that don't have the choice when they are brought into the world living in a crack shack, etc. that truly don't deserve it.
