Totally disagree. It is against the human rights.
Let them decide how many they think they could afford the children. Education must be priority in these countries. It is the government's jobs.

Well as we all know that everyone loves children and no one wants to spend life without children or family so it cant be baned. Having more children is not a problem if you can give them good education and steerage. On the other side, nowadays are people are seeing the results everyone prefers to have fewer children whether rich countries or poor countries because their education and growth is really a big responsibility. Just bringing kids to world without fulfilling your responsibilities being the parents is harmful both for the parents and the world.

In my piont of view in order to reduce poverty people in poor countries should have fewer children. They should , but it is difficult to plan amount of offspring because people who live in poverty don't have a clue about a contraception, so it;'s hard to have fewer children. I want to add that providing children adequate conditions for instance good education, foood , clothes, and help is expensive so poor people can't do it. It's easier to hold one child than more children. In this situation people spend less money and at the same time work and make money, so they become richer. In fact the brithrate is lower , but it's not a problem , because of overpopulation.

What do YOU think?


I have not read the topic yet, but because I find this catchy let me share my personal opinion about this first. :-)

I think solving the employment problem is the only best solution. Creating more jobs is the best solution to having a lot of children too.

I think ib teh most part of cases - answer is yes. I have heard many examples of African families with eight or more children, but they are very very poor. I think it's a option to reduce poority in second world countries

I suppose, that this way would reduce poverty in poor countries. Big family associate with big cost. And when family is smaller, maintenance easier. For example in Africa we see many big family, and we also see huge poverty on the continent. But on the other hand we shouldn't prohibit to have children, because decision connects with children is individual business.

People in poor countries are a lot of kids to get money for each of them and they still are not able to provide them with living conditions. On the other hand, if they had fewer children or none at all , the population in these countries would go down significantly . It's really difficult to make a decision without violating human rights or allowing not guilty children to live in poverty. :(

i think that this could stop the poverty in poor countries because in poor countries level of demographic growth is very high, and people there don't have possibility to provide good life level for children and all nations.

It depends from the situation. Children may provide a cheap source of workforce what helps in developing countries. Sometimes eliminating poverty.‏

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.

I think that we can't require people in poor country to have fewer children. Every person has right to own choice. So we should find different way to decrease the level of poverty.

There is NO link between poverty and children.
Japan has a population of nearly 127 Million, while Senegal has 15 million for instance.

Poverty links to the poor education and resources management for example and so many others, but not children for sure.

Regards.
