    In regards to the UN concerns for overpopulation. Have you seen the documentaries the Demographic bomb and Demographic Winter? They argue that the world is going to be underpopulated not overpopulated. I have not seen both and only one partially but I though it might be an anti abortion documentary at heart. It will be interesting to see if this concept gains traction with the religious right or the right in general.
