Pro

First Round will be for acceptance. Population Control can be defined as any method of population control, short of mass killings, genocides, or anything truly over the top.

Is this control like a one child policy? Or would killing involved and would it be endorsed by the state?

To be clear my children scenario is where I draw the line, if that's what Jacob is on about. That's where I was defining what I would not argue for.

My imagined scenario is trucks of armed soldiers jump out and run into a school, gunning down every child present in the name of population control. Stuff that is really, truly unnecessary. Things that population control don't have to do.
