12. Just ask Latin America how well that worked out.

Since the rhythm method is the only one Catholic conservatives will abide, the region's population grew massively - doubling every 30 years - until their governments finally got serious about high birth rates in the '80s and the rate of growth slowed to the current 1% or so (it's 0.6% in the U.S. currently).

Even so, Latin America's population, which was the same as the U.S.'s in 1940 (130 million), is twice as much at 650 million - but with half the U.S. economy and all the problems those levels entail.

That's conservative population policy in action (or worse).
