Core Functions of Government
Apparently a WA state legislator wants the state secretary of health to publish pamphlets promoting small families. I'm not sure what her definition of "population sustainability" is since families of two or fewer children result in a declining population because they don't fill in for those unable to have children at all. Government moralizing is generally despicable, but this is one case where the moniker "Nanny State" doesn't quite fit.
