One physician says, ”Why, Bubba, thiseyer crazy birth thang isa gettin’ so bad that perty soon, they ain’t gonna be room for ever’body! There’sa gonna be standin’ room only on this here planet!”

The other doctor replied, “Heck, that sure oughta slow ‘em down a bit!”

… [T]here is one very important thing that each of us can do about the population explosion: not have too many children.

… [B]eing a “good parent” today should mean not only providing the best possible upbringing for one or two children—working toward quality, not quantity—but helping to see that future population size is such that those children have a chance for a good life.
