I was watching a tv show (which sucks and ive only watched it once, called Bromwell High) where they made this joke, where a couple was talking about adopting a child. They were asked if they were infertile, but they answered that no, they were in fact super fertile, and the reason they wanted to adopt was that with all those homeless orphan kids lying around, it would be an insult to just have a child. It was just a joke, but later I started thinking about it and it actually made a lot of sense: with so many poor kids needing a home, doesn't it make sense that even fertile couples adopted children instead of birthing more?
I know that people want to have their own children, but it is just a suggestion. What do you think?
