Why is population control so controversial?

On the next Your Call we'll talk about global population and what we should be doing about it, if anything. There are almost 7 billion people on the planet and there could be 9 billion by 2050. What are the primary concerns with population growth? How are they being addressed? And by whom? How have perceptions of population control changed? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at How do racism, classism, and resource inequalities factor into the controversies over population control? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
