Melissa Mcgrave, mother of two agrees to a certain degree and says, "I think that there's definitely a problem with the trash and the waste that we do have."
Porritt says couples should limit the number of children they have to two.
Virginia Kimotho, mother of a one year old says, "I mean there's always that 'oops' baby and if it happens well, hey, well, and good."
In an interview Porritt said, "I think we will work our way towards a position that says that having more than two children is irresponsible. I am unapologetic about asking people to connect up their own responsibility for their total environmental footprint."
He adds curbing population through contraception and abortion is necessary to fight global warming.
Jodi Stiegelmeyer, mother of 3 says, "I can see his point in seeing how many people are on the planet affects the strain on the planet. I can definitely understand; I just wouldn't agree that aborting children is the way to go to deal with that problem."
Bishop Paul Lambert with the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas says, "To just blanketly say, 'Well, we'll just line up all these women and do all these abortions or we'll sneak contraceptives in the water or something to keep them from producing more children it,' doesn't make any sense!"
Lambert has three children of his own and says abortion shouldn't be used as a form of contraception, "God intended for us to have children or he wouldn't of created us with the ability to do so."
Dennis Mcgrave, father of two says, "You really can't force what you believe on somebody else if somebody want to have unfortunately 8 kids after 6 kids like in California i don't know if that's right but you can't force them not to do it."
