In the world we live in nowadays I think it's an important thing to have in mind: adoption. As someone who is very maternal, one of the things I look forward in the future are children. And one of the things I keep thinking is that I would like to adopt. Because children need a home, they need love and nurturing. They don't deserve to feel abandoned like that. Plus, overpopulation is a big thing. What are your thoughts on it?

I love children and I definitely want to have some of my own but I'm against abortion (not in general, but for my own life).
Over-population is actually not really "a thing". The problem is that humans destroy the planet and that we don't share our resources fairly. For example western developed countries waste huge amounts of perfectly good and nutritious food while people in poor countries starve to death. The UN calculated a few years ago that if we shared our resources fairly and if rich countries didn't do fucked-up things such as speculating on global staple food prices, planet earth could easily support 12 billion people without anyone starving. So the problem is not that there's too many of us, the problem is that we're a bunch of egoistic assholes (just as a side remark).1
