I thinkt that this would reduce poverty. But this problem will be still. but on the other hand if people in poor country don't have children it could be disaster for country, because there could be a low birth rate. But big family is albo problem 'cause sometime parents don't have money to feed their kids and they die.

In my opinion it is true. One of the biggest reasons of poverty is to many children. Lots of parents don't have money and they aren't able to maintain their children. This is also very difficult subject because in some countries having many children is a tradition. In such situation people don't worry about money because tradition is more important.

I think that people in poorer countries should have fewer children, but this is not always possible because residents are not well educated. On the other hand, I think that everyone should have as many children as he wants but the state should help fund families that can not handle

I think that should help poor countires to reduce poverty. Mostly in Africa, families are so poor and they still have big number of children and that doesn't look good for them. They should have fewer children to improve their live standards. But they still should have one or two children because having a birth rate below zero isn't good for country.

I think that people in poor country should have fewer children. Probably it would decrease the level of poverty. But on the other hand every person has the same rights so people have right to choose how many children they want to have and we can't prohibit them it.

No, I think we can't force anyone to have fewer children. It's an individual thing. I know that difference between birth rate in poor and industrialized countries is huge but we only can help poorer people without any bans or imperatives.

I completely agree with this sentence. All right, somebody wants to have a lot of children, but if this country is poorer than another and living standards are so low, it is better to have a fewer children, which means fewer expanditures.

In my opinion people should have children as much as they want. Sometimes when family is poor this statement is the best because a lot of children can make that family don't have money to buy for example clothes or food and poverty increases. :-(

I'm not sure. They should have as many children as they can keep a good standard of living. Poor people should not have many children, im 100% sure.

People shouldn't have a law to forbide someone to decide about someone's life but in addition to this topic I think that people in poor countries should be more responsible when they plan their families. They know that they have a less chance to bring up children in adequate conditions so they should reduce a number of kids for their comfort and mainly for kids.
