It is implied that some form of government would be removing the right to have children. However, it is not the government's right to restrict rights, only guarantee them, among those the right to happiness. Children may make them happy, and so denying them would go against one of their rights.
Theoretically it could be a good idea for the human race, but in reality it would be very hard to define clearly who should be allowed to breed.
How low must your IQ be before you are denied?
