Is It Irresponsible To Have A Large Family? TV Host Thinks So

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

A British television host is stirring up controversy by suggesting it is irresponsible to have a large family.

While speaking about his new documentary, David Attenborough says if the population continues to grow, future generations will not be as happy or healthy because resources will disappear. The 87-year-old also expresses his support for China's one-child policy.

Attenborough says, "The Chinese themselves recognize that had they not done so there would be several million more mouths in the world today than there are now."

Large-family advocates are upset by Attenborough's comments.

One mommy blogger, who has 14 children, says, "My family may use more resources as a whole, but we certainly use less as individuals. Just one example is with diapers. I invested in a set of cloth diapers, which I used on six babies."
