Yes, it could be good. On the other hand, if the birth rate gets too low, you end up with a smaller population trying to support a larger older population and such a top-heavy situation can lead to its own problems.I guess it depends on who it effects. For the world, it just might be a good thing. A lot of people contend that the world is overpopulated for the resources that are available. For the children, I'd have to say it's probably a good thing, if it means that those who don't want children aren't having them. We definitely don't need more unwanted babies to end up abused or neglected.
