    There's a Russian saying/proverb:
    1 child is an egoist
    2 children is better
    3 children is optimum

    This is from a Soviet society that lost millions to Hitler and Stalin and wanted to have as many kids as possible. Meaning that you would think the OPTIMUM would be like 5. I mean, this is a country that gave out a Mother Heroine Medal if she had 10+ kids.

    So color me surprised that this is now an issue in the US -- one that I agree with.
