Do you have a right to be born? Do you have a right to die? Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., wraps these lofty questions into a brief, startling dark comedy about population control. In the future, Earth's population is stabilized. The planet is a paradise, and science allows people to live forever. But there's a catch. No one can be born unless someone dies. What would you do in this world if your family was expecting triplets? By the end of this short story, you'll be questioning whether this "paradise" is really one at all.
