* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' continues this trend where natives are given "vaccines" to protect against a "disease", with said vaccines actually being experimental [[PuppeteerParasite Las Plagas]] and the deaths of all children, women, and most men being blamed on the alleged disease.

* Many [[UsefulNotes/NativeAmericans Native American]] communities became this in the late 19th and early 20th century, when their children were forcibly removed and sent to government-run [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors residential schools]] under the "kill the Indian, save the man" assimilation policy. Thousands died (mainly from disease), and those who survived returned to their families scarred from abuse and stripped of their language and culture. The impact of this policy (which didn't end until the 1970s) is still felt in Native American communities to this day.

* In "TheHandmaidsTale" by Margaret Atwood, future Earth is so irradiated that most humans are sterile, and the births that do happen are usually [[UnPerson "Un-Babies"]] with severe defects. This leads to a theocracy in which the few remaining fertile women become [[SexSlave sex slaves]] for powerful men.

* The 1992 novel ''Literature/ChildrenOfMen'' by P. D. James.James.
* ''Greybeard'', by Creator/BrianWAldiss, has a childless world caused by a SterilityPlague.[[note]]This was published decades before the somewhat similar ''Literature/ChildrenOfMen'' (see above). Hence, [[ScifiGhetto there was a certain amount of irritation in the SF fan community when P.D. James was credited with having come up with a new and original idea by literary critics]].[[/note]]

* In ''LightNovel/SundayWithoutGod'', when people stopped being able to die, they also stopped being able to give birth, so with no new children being born in fifteen years the world's population has shrunk considerably. The only exceptions are twelve-year-old Ai, whose very birth is shrouded in mystery, and [[spoiler:Ulla's twin sister Celica, who was born fifteen years ago but because she was frozen in time, is still a baby.]]

* In ''Literature/{{ASongOfIceAndFire}}'', the city of Asshai has no children. The reason for this is not given, but since Asshai is a place where the darkest of magics are practiced the implications are quite sinister.

Added DiffLines:

* Used to rare positive effect in the Erich Kästner novel ''Die Konferenz der Tiere'' ("The Animals' Conference") and the 1969 animated movie based on it[[hottip:*:incidentally the first full-length German animated film in color]], in which the animals decide that after entirely too many of the humans' peace talks and conferences have come to naught it's time for ''them'' to do something about it. After multiple appeals to reason and creative attempts at sabotage have failed to convince the stubborn humans to abolish war, the animals resort to taking the humans' (cooperative) children away from their "clearly unsuitable" parents by "abducting" them and hiding them in places where they can play safely with the animals looking after them -- and that finally does the trick.
