Nearly all over the globe, whether the country is democratic or totalitarian, wealthy or poor, most are grappling with one of the greatest challenges of this century. It is the problem of rapidly declining population. A solution has to be found because some nations are standing on the verge of the inability to continue functioning as a country. Japan, South Korea, and Bulgaria are examples of this, and their populations may well be extinguished before the end of this century.
Many countries are facing this challenge with various innovative policies. For example: China, Russia, Hungary, and other countries are restricting abortion.
