Megan Toombs is the Communications and Outreach Coordinator for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. She challenges the ideas of a professor who recommends that every woman have just one child. She examines various alternatives that have been used and might be in the future if population management programs are implemented. The ideas of this professor and others like her contradict teachings of most religions and ethics. Megan claims that the world population could fit into Texas. It would be more comfortable, if the world population lived in an area the size of Texas plus a few other states.
