And who wants to get into whose bedroom?: Some liberals want to limit the number of children people can have to two

How long until these arguments are being made openly in the United States? From the London Sunday Times:

COUPLES who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the government’s green adviser has warned.

Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. He says political leaders and green campaigners should stop dodging the issue of environmental harm caused by an expanding population.

A report by the commission, to be published next month, will say that governments must reduce population growth through better family planning.

“I am unapologetic about asking people to connect up their own responsibility for their total environmental footprint and how they decide to procreate and how many children they think are appropriate,” Porritt said. . . .

Liberals, once again prove, they are anything but liberal.

The only issue about having children is: don't breed 'em if you can't feed 'em, otherwise, who cares how many kids anyone has, it's none of anyone's business.

Don't the Chinese do this?? Yep, they sure do. It makes no difference what the 'disguise' is.(in this case "is" means is) Control of any type by any minority is to relinquish individual rights and responsibilities. It's only a matter of time before the mainstream 'lapdog' media starts pontificating the same socialists drivel here in our country.

What if someone has less than two children? Do they get a government issues spouse to bring them up to the required quota?
