In Zimbabwe, the twin sister of Sally Mugabe, late wife of the first leader of Zimbabwe, propagated family planning enthusiastically, even though some freedom fighters believed that population control was merely a ruse by the imperialists to weaken the up-and-coming countries of the southern hemisphere.
Population planners and demographers argue that we can only cope with “climate change” if we do without children.
So governments try to motivate parents to have more children, encourage larger families with subsidies and “children’s bonuses”, enabling women to have a family while pursuing a professional career.
It is being said by some “population experts” that education is the best means of birth control, meaning well-educated women have fewer children.
Would it not be better for a woman to have children when she is still young, and resume her professional career when the children begin to stand on their own feet?
