GREAT SUPPLEMENTAL RESOURCE FOR: any dystopian novel like THE GIVER, HUNGER GAMES, DIVERGENT, UNWIND, etc.

In this futuristic dystopian short story, Mr. Wehling is going to be the happy father of 3 triplets. The problem with that is that due to population control this means 3 people must leave the earth.
