Although the topic is controversial, there are some approaches to it that are not; for example, there should be little disagreement about efforts to improve economic opportunity and family planning in sending countries to diminish the economic and population-related motivation for emigration. Hence the state's interest in how well families manage the care of dependents.

On the other hand, modern medical techniques are producing life extension but not healthy life extension, and we are seeing numbers of old and chronically sick or disabled elderly people in increasingly longer economically unproductive retirements, who need consequentially increasing numbers of younger people to support them. Period total fertility rates are below replacement level in all Western European countries. Early indications suggest that the new Obama administration and the Democratic majority in Congress will bring increased attention to family planning and reproductive health.
