This is an example of denying that a problem exists because some solutions
are totally unacceptable. Since we live in a finite world, zero population
growth (i.e. equality of birth rate and death rate) is going to happen
some day anyhow. If it happens by the death rate increasing to match the
birth rate, that should also be a totally unacceptable solution for us as
pro-life Christians. We should back morally acceptable solutions for
bringing down the birth rate.
