    People shouldn't have their right to reproduce taken away, especially if it forces abortions or sterilization, they are invasive surgeries.

    Gentle encouragement to use birth control and awareness of the overpopulation would be helpful. And free birth control should just be the law everywhere, in my opinion.
    I agree, those are the things I hate about China's one child child policy, that it's invasive and forceful. Governments of nations with high population density should try to enact population policies with the things you've mentioned on here, birth control, that's prevents pregnancy but is also healthy for the user.
