* ''2BR02B'' by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. The Federal Bureau of Termination maintains PopulationControl with official gas chambers. When a man's wife gives birth to triplets and she's only allowed one child, he shoots himself and the inventor of the system, thus keeping the birth/death rate balanced.

* Happens in KurtVonnegut's short story "Welcome to the Monkey House", where it's encouraged by the government in order to bring down the human population to manageable levels (and those who administer the drug are [[MsFanservice voluptuous babes]] who dress in [[VaporWear transparent clothing]] to appeal to older men.)
** Also in another of Vonnegut's short stories, "2BR02B" (the zero is pronounced "naught".) Aging has been cured. To keep the population of the United States from exceeding forty million people, the law of the land says that before anybody new can be born, somebody must volunteer to die. Anybody who feels like dying arranges to do so by calling the phone number which is the title of the story and making an appointment. The protagonist of the story is distraught because his wife is about to have triplets, but he's only found one person willing to die. [[spoiler: He finally decides on the solution of [[MurderSuicide shooting two proponents of population control and then shooting himself]].]]

* Also appears in ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'' (where humanity has lost the ability to reproduce, causing widespread despair as people know they are going to die out) in the form of a highly successful pharmaceutical campaign selling what are essentially suicide pills. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Parallels to antidepressants]] are [[{{Anvilicious}} not entirely subtle]]. Then again, it does lead to a {{tearjerker}} moment [[spoiler:as MichaelCaine euthanizes his vegetative wife when he knows that he will be performing a HeroicSacrifice to cover the escape of the protagonists]]. One dark touch is that an advertisement mentions they're offered free to illegal immigrants, who are horribly persecuted in the film.

* One of the earliest examples, if not ''the'' earliest, occurs in WinsorMcCay's ''ComicStrip/DreamOfTheRarebitFiend'': [[http://www.comicstriplibrary.org/display/952 see here]]. Needless to say given the title, it's AllJustADream.
