Reduce birth rates in developing world, or global extreme poverty will worsen

Birth rates 'must be curbed to win war on global poverty'

In short, the expected population explosion in the developing world will increase the number and percentage of people in extreme poverty.

But because of the forced population controls of China (and in the past, India), people are afraid to talk about reducing population through contraception as a means of reducing poverty.

For all of you who feel that it's not politically correct or morally right to exercise population control measures in a dire situation like this, I hope the thirsty people in the future will be able to drink a nice big glass of your self-righteousness. Because there sure as hell won't be any potable water left for them to drink.
