  •  Enough kids for whom? (5+ / 0-)

    We're "running out" of neither white people nor Americans nor humans.  And, as a white person, I see no reason to be upset or alarmed that there are fewer white people proportionally -- there are still hundreds of millions of us, and no one's enacting genocide against us.  Concern about the "survival" of the "white race" is racist on its face.

    And if we'd pull our heads out and start funding family planning services around the world, people in poorer countries would have fewer kids too -- by the individual women's choices, not by any government mandate or fear-of-black-and-brown-people-driven campaigns.  They'd do what was best for themselves and their families, and most of the time (assuming consistent vaccination and food programs such that children survive to adulthood), that's not a half dozen or dozen children.

    Empower women and save the planet.
