The global birth rate is much too high, there's no question about it.
In 2011 we've breached the 7 billion mark, and we'll breach the 8 billion mark this year (2022).
Sadly, when it comes to reproduction and sexual urges you can't reason with most people.
Nobody wants to give up on having children.
They'd rather put kids into a completely messed up and horrible world than stop reproducing for the sake of humanity. Selfish and irrational.
Unless all living people can live in perfect unison and harmony with one another, no additional souls should be dragged into this freak show.
