'Stop at two kids' campaign warms up

by Carolyn Moynihan

The population control movement in Britain has found a new and powerful voice in a top government adviser. Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the official Sustainable Development Commission, says people should have no more than two children. He says curbing population growth through family planning must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. A report by the commission, to be published next month, will say that governments must reduce population growth by funding better family planning -- even if it means shifting money from curing illness to increasing contraception and abortion.
