No, we are on a path to significant population decline anyway, and we need youth to look after the old.

Very complicated question. This is the problem addressed in the Dan Brown novel Inferno. The main villain, Bertrand Zobrist was a bioengineer concerned about Earth's growing population and believed extreme measures were necessary to deal with it. In the novel, his solution was a sterilization virus, and in the film adaptation it was a plague. Sterilization sounds more humane than a plague pandemic.

@ladiesman But who gets sterilized? The mentally ill, the disabled? Sounds like a new eugenics movement.

@passwordstipulationssuck The whole human race would have been sterilized.

There should be a series of tests, mental, physical and genetic, to weed out all but the ones with the best genes which are passed down to the next generation. We have stopped our evolution, as in this age anyone can pass on his genes, not only the fittest one to survive. While many will be outraged by this decision, how can it be right to give a child sub-standard genetic material, deformities, diseases and more?
