I think the right to choose weather or not to have them is a right.
I don't think there should necessarily be restrictions per-say (I am very much against the way China's one child rule is enforced), but I do believe that having more than a couple should be discouraged.
We're heading towards overpopulation as it is, more people = less resources = more problems.
I think a lot of the encouraging people to breed needs to stop to.
It is scary how many people I used to go to school with have babies already (one of them is up to her third!), I'm 21!
A lot of people seem to be having babies for the welfare benefits, not because they want children, I was told on the phone to Student Loans once that if I didn't want my loan means tested on my parents wages then I should "just have a baby".
I find this absolutely insane.
Then there's the "babies as fashion accessories crowd", I have a friend who sometimes will not shut up about how she wnts a kid so she can dress it in Lolita clothes.
Excuse me, but a baby is not a doll, if you want to dress something up get a Barbie.
I think people should be educated more about the responsibilities of looking after children.
I also think there should be restrictions on IVF, that stuff costs the NHS a fortune, an Aunt of mine keeps having it done over and over again and it keeps failing, yet she won't adopt because she wants "a baby of her own" and she's always the first to criticise the NHS when they refuse to give people cancer treatments because they can't afford them.
Sorry I appear to have gone off on a tangent.
