Population control must be used in order to confront poverty.

There is no such thing as redundant people in a market. Every extra person creates extra demand in the market due to his needs and so his existence creates a new job.

Poverty is created by the lack of infrastructures. The number of people is irrelevant. This is proven by the fact that there are countries with little population that are very poor, such as Congo.

As the population increases, the probability for productivity and innovation increases as well.

It is common sense that if somebody, who is poor, delivers many children, he will deteriorate economically. Even a wealthy family in the West could easily become impoverished in case it had a large number of children. So it is illogical a family with circumspect number of children in the West to help another in a poor country with an absurd number of children.
History has shown that a reduction in mortality rates and the improvement of the conditions by itself will bring a rationalization in the number of children. So population control is needless. Helping poor countries to increase their life expectancy seems to be enough.

In practice there may be excess manpower at a given time in a market mainly due to the bad synchronization of the increasing demand and the increasing supply. If the theory that nobody is redudant in a market was true , we wouldn't have unemployment in practice.

The existence of fewer people will not solve the problem at once, but it will make it easier to be solved. Population growth helps development only when there are specific prerequisites but works inculpatory if the latters are absent.
Productivity presupposes some infrastructure and innovation higher education. In the countries that population control is proposed , there is neither infrastructure nor access to universities.
Large families in poor countries is the only way to go because of the high percentage of child mortality and the lack of insurance system. The poor, through large families, are trying to secure their old age.
