It's as wrong to force people to have children as it is to forbid them. Romania, in its communist days, required women to have four children. The result? Children abandoned in orphanages that would have shocked Dickens, and a skyrocketing abortion rate. No government should advocate, or forbid, child bearing. And, to be honest, if you want higher fertility rates, you need to get women out of the workforce. There is a direct correlation between women going to school, and working, and a plunging birth rate. Personally it doesn't bother me. Our species isn't on the verge of extinction despite the hysteria.
