* German politician Frauke Petry of the {{AfD}} party wants a [[http://www.noz.de/deutschland-welt/politik/artikel/500073/afd-petry-will-volksentscheid-uber-abtreibung referendum]] to restrict abortion (which is not technically legal in Germany, merely ''tolerated'' in some cases) even more. She also is of the opinion that each German woman should have at least three children, to "secure the survival of our people". Why she seems to think that ''immigrants'', who are least able to go abroad for an abortion, won't have more babies, too, when they're not able to get abortions, is anyone's guess.

* In ''Literature/TheGiver'', girls are selected at the age of twelve to begin training as Birthmothers, producing offspring for the Community that are immediately taken away. Once they meet their quota, Birthmothers spend the rest of their lives as factory labourers. The system is elaborated on in ''Literature/{{Son}}'', and it is as sterile and creepy as one would expect -- the women are even referred to as "Vessels" and their children as "Products," and they give birth blindfolded as not to get attached to their offspring.
