Because the rest of your jokes aren't funny either, anywhere else on the forum. Just informing you of reality.

Ooooookay. So you want to explain the state operated abortion thing or...
No, get a label gun and shoot them with labels like "Bad guy #1" "Bad guy #2" Slightly badder guy" "Guy that thinks he is bad but is really good and just confused"

Hopefully a joke.

Logic. Sanli reproduce about four times as fast as humans, sometimes more, sometimes less, but the average is four. This means that overpopulation comes much sooner than it could with humans, and actions must be taken to keep Sanli from flooding the planet or using too many resources. This is somewhat good for colonization, but it forces their economy on colonies to expand at whirlwind speeds in order to keep up with population growth, if it were let loose. They do still 'eat', etc.

Eh, Any moral qualms, galactic support groups, fundy terrorists, is Sanli like the galaxy's  apartheid Africa?

No? It's pretty easy to see if there is an huge amount of Sanli creating far more Sanli on a planet that isn't getting better, that population controls must be put in place. Sanli also never cease to reproduce, so it's around 400% growth every year or two, not accounting for Sanli too young to reproduce. Contrast this with humanity's measly 8% or so. Hosts are always in demand...

If you read the stories, you'll realize that it only took a few years for them to strip their home continent of practically all natural resources, and they had to learn from that.

You know that and I know that. But I'm sure there are some radical pro lifetists in this galxy, cluster.. thing who would give the Sannys some grief about it.

At which point the Sanli would laugh in their faces and say that if they had the capability of keeping up with their reproduction, they would control the entire cluster in a matter of decades, then they would kill said radical life-lovers. Sanli are also just genetic copies of each other, a bunch of asexual clones.

A little harsh don't you think? And what does being a clone have to do with it? As the war showed Sanli are capable of independent thought.

Being a clone means that genetically, every Sanli is simply another Sanli, perfectly, genetically. One less Sanli isn't really a genetic loss, because there are already such and such billion copies. Their personalities develop based on training, experiences, and environmental factors.

The Sanli, as capable of independent thought as humans, are also about as tolerant as humans when it comes to violent radicals/threats. They also understand the reasons for population control as a whole, due to universal general education, before specialization, as well as from history itself. Thus, said radical life-lovers would be considered a threat because they are radical (I.E. violent), and therefore attacked, since the Sanli without population control is not a good thing. Sanli naturally want hosts, and hosts reproduce at a far slower pace than Sanli, so they would eventually resort to even sentients/sapients if needed, in order to have viable hosts, able to perform proper work with tools and such.
