I think that free birth control for everyone everywhere, along with good sex education programs in public schools, would help reduce the population without forcing anyone to do anything. I think it's probably the only way there is without forcing someone to be punished for having children. Even without legal abortion I think it would have a huge impact.

"No".

Pretty sure he's trolling you :) My answer: better condom usage in 3rd world countries, advantageous selection of sexual empowerment programs, better education (which means less children on average, statistically), the list is endless. Good debate.
