Population Control, Family Size, Obligations, Future Generations
Increase in population has become the concern of many countries in the world. Statistics show that there has been a tremendous increase in population in the recent past. The increase in population has its positive and negative effects as well as the influence it has in the world. Availability of a good workforce and massive production is among the positive effects of the increase in population. Industries enjoy a wide source of the available workforce, which leads to increase in production. One of the negative effects is the straining of national resources, which results to other vices like unemployment. Different countries have adopted different strategies of addressing this concern to establish a good state of balance.
Population control is one of the strategies that these countries have applied in their quest of regulating population. Limiting family size is an emerging trend that is becoming popular in many countries (McLean, 2006). This essay will focus on the pros and cons of the strategy in addressing the concern of increase in population. However, the essay will refer to the moral theory of virtue ethics to present a viable argument. In addition, the essay will take those supporting the introduction and application of limiting family size as the main source of opposition.
