9. Population impact

I sometimes wonder if folks in this camp have ever thought about what would happen if everyone followed their lead and had 10+ kids (like the Duggar's from "19 kids and counting".

We would have severe overpopulation problems!

Ironically, I sometimes hear conservative politicians make remarks about the benefits of higher birth rates (i.e., more people to pay into Social Security to fund them during their old age). One whose name I can't remember was waging criticism of abortion based on only this argument.... that it was reducing the number of people who could be paying into the system. Terrible!
