Americans should not be limited to the amount of children to have because they might not be happy with just two children.

2 child rule would be ineffective because it does not have significant enough impact on resource consumption. No children before the age of 30 or a decade of banning new births every 60 or 70 years, in America and/or globally might be viable options (especially if combined) for combating the threat of extinction associated with exceeding earth's carrying capacity for supporting industrial human life. Let's remember that today's 7-yr-olds in America produce about twice the ecological footprint than American 7-yr-olds from 40 yrs ago did. Stagnating growth is not enough, a drastic reduction in population or alternatively drastic change in way of life is necessity. Likely both will occur regardless what action we take.

why, do you see India have this rule or other countries? Why the USA? It's one of the largest countries in the world by size there is plenty of room for a larger population, that is why so many immigrants arrive each year.
