I believe that population growth is a serious issue we are facing today and it needs to be made a propriety to control it. By increasing the amount of education to woman in developing countries, there has already been a decrease in the birth rates. In addition to decreasing the amount of birth rates, there has been a rise in the status of woman around the world. I think this rise is positive and will help decrease the birth rates around the world. By increasing the status of a woman, she is more likely to get a job. With the additional work, there is less time to take care of a family. I think by increasing the status of a woman her priorities change from only being able to raise a family to a whole new world, the work force. I believe the lower birth rates are a combination between equality in the sexes and the quality of life has increased. As the quality of life increases for woman, there is a natural increase in the equality of the sexes. With more education, woman are empowered and are available to more opportunities.
Having a policy limiting the amount of children a family can have seems logical, but in my opinion isn’t the best solution. Putting a cap on the amount of children a woman can bare takes away from the rights she has as a woman. There is a reason men and women are different and putting a policy on the amount of children affects a woman more than a man. If we start taking away the rights of how many children a woman can have, what are we going to do next? Allow for murder?
