A Government environment adviser has said that couples who have more than two children create an unbearable burden on the environment.
Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the Government's Sustainable Development Commission, said that curbing population growth through contraception and abortion is key to combating climate change.
Mr Porritt, who has two children, argues the government must promote more effective family planning.

A report by the commission, due to be published next month, will say that governments must reduce population growth through better family planning.
