    Lightbulb End to Population Growth: Family Planning is Key to a Sustainable Future

    It took the US 200 years to go from 7 babies per family to two. "Bangladesh has done that in 20. Iran has more than halved its fertility rate in a decade."
    Carl Haub - Population Reference Bureau


    Before, we didn't know how to control pregnancy, we didn't have the education, and people in the area were having nine or ten children. We have 18 families and no one has more than three children. The health of the children and mothers has improved, and so has the spacing of babies. Everyone understands the importance of family planning now. Vincente Jarrin and Maria Juana Jarrin Malca, Husband and Wife Family Planning Promoters in Pasquazo Zambrano, Ecuador

    Babies also cost money now whereas in the past they would have generated money via free labour on farms or by going out and working and bringing the money home.

    Education in the past was not seen as crucial so schooling was rudimentry and cost little. Now without University/College you are stuck working menial jobs.

    Family units were stronger before so marriages stood the test of time and so kids were born over decades where as now marriages might only last a couple of years (if that) so between that and working women and all the economics childless couples are on the rise.

    I can't believe these "Professors" get paid to come up with this stuff as if it is something complicated!
