Identify and explain two responsibilities that you think governments have with respect to population growth.

    Governments can legitimately limit immigration.

    Governments also have a responsibility to see that its citizens receive good health care so that more people live longer.

    But -- do governments have the right to limit the number of children a family has?

    China's one-child per family policy was effective in curbing its population growth, but it was abhorrent to many people.

    What do you think?

    I think on one hand, it was a good solution because it would help stop population growth, but on the other hand the people in china didn't like this new rule so im sot of in the middle.

    Welcome to the real world! :-)

    Sometimes solutions to real problems create more problems. Often there are no "good" answers, but "better" and "worse" answers.

    In China's case, its one-child policy undoubtedly helped the majority of people prosper while it took away freedoms from would-be parents.
