Do you think that the use of contraception in third world countries would reduce overpopulation which leads to starvation and spread of diseases?

Do you think that the use of contraception in third world countries would reduce overpopulation which leads to starvation and spread of diseases?
  • Less people, less death

    Since "overpopulation which leads to starvation and spread of diseases" is a subset of "overpopulation", method to reduce overpopulation will succeed at that. Furthermore, like any animal population, once humans exceed their carrying capacity, starvation occurs. Dense populations can lead to increased fighting over remaining resource, leading to conflict and war. The subsequent war reduces order and leads to diseases, as seen in wars around the world over all time.

  • Many women would welcome birth control

    Given the choice, I think many women in 3rd world countries would welcome birth control. They are left caring for as many as a dozen children without the resources to sustain the children's health and life. Provide them wit the opportunity to exist on their own versus having to rely on periodic relief that doesn't sustain the health and well being for them or their children.

    Let the women have the choice to raise healthy children versus having to lose children to disease and malnutrition.

  • No excuse for overbreeding and immigration

    Force a one child policy on nations who have been breeding considerably above replacement level for the last several generations. Basically this would exclude most industrialized first world nations that have been around replacement levels of 2.1-2.3 children. Nations whose levels have been above 3 are typically poorer, less educated and more misogynist. Forcing a one child policy on these nations for several generations would improve global conditions.

  • Swimming against the tide

    Maybe you can't force contraception on people, maybe it isn't right, however what also isn't right is bringing innocent children into a life of constant starvation. This has been going on for as long as I can remember and it seems to be getting worse, not better. Something needs to change, throwing money at the problem isn't helping. Maybe more education and providing implants or injections would help stop a percentage of children who in all honesty (and it's disgusting to even say) are going to die an agonising death. So yes (in my opinion) contraception should be given and maybe the women (and their partners) having all these children will be able to better look after the ones they already have.

  • Mandate a global 1-2 child/person policy

    I think that third world and middle eastern nations' over population and unsustainable birth rates are behind much of the world's current political issues. Birth control by injection should be done in said places. It is time to stop accepting migrants from nations overpopulated by child rapes and the denial of any right of women to partake in civil society. It is sick that elitists in the first world seek destabilization therein by the proceeds of mass rapes of children in order to have cheap labor in first world nations that already face homeless and job shortages. Nothing good will come of a continued population explosion unchecked. Israel's idea of injection...Might be better spread beyond its borders to where birth rates are beyond replacement, and where migration and poverty are issues.

  • Mandate a 1-2 child/person globally

    All nations at this point should be forced to reduce birth rates to 1-2 children. Nations should not be pillaged because other nations have allowed men to rape children and have birth rates that are unsustainable. Birth control should be enforced in said nations to further better condition of women and children. All nations should be solvent/sustainable. Raping children and denial of birth control to women only leads to demise and poverty.

  • They shouldn't have a choice were supporting them

    They're not too hungry the adults too have sex and create children into a world that can support them so they end up suffering and the other countries in the taking care of them they should have to take birth control it should be mandatory until their countries in a better state

  • Lifestyle, education, physical health, and women's rights play a bigger role in reducing birth rates in third world countries compared to contraception.

    Contraception is expensive, requires sexual education, and without incentives, people in third world countries would not be inclined to use it. Back when people lived nomadic tribal lifestyles, women had to carry their babies with them for many miles. Two babies, less than four years apart, would be a physical burden. Birth control was built into their lifestyle. Not everyone on earth can live like a first world educated person because there are not enough resources on the planet. Poverty, sexual abuse, inequality, starvation, epidemics, and overpopulation are direct results of the agricultural revolution and, more recently, the industrial civilization. Third world countries need wild open space, a hunting and gathering or horticultural lifestyle, and clean water to really thrive.

  • No, they should be allowed to have children.

    Just because these people are poor by our standards does not give us the right to choose whether they should have children or not. These people don't know our world and have a right to live in theirs. To live is to have relationships, love and children. It is a human right. We are not superior and thinking that we are is highly dangerous. It is not only very selfish but reminds me of Nazism in the eradication of the poor and weak from society....and purely because they cost too much!

  • Would it make a difference, is it important?

    Third world countries cant even afford to feed themselves never mind their young! If they are unable to lead a perfectly balanced life then how are they gonna afford contraception, maybe it's for free but anyway is it important - no! They need love, care, food + fresh water not condoms. I believe that they should get put onto a contraception that enables them not to get pregnant yes' but there's worse things they are facing such as starvation. Nobody can force them though because we all are free to speak but I believe the population of people is affecting the world + there isn't enough food for us all, so there is two sides to this question.

  • I do not feel that the use of contraceptives in third world countries would help, because it would require financing and educating the population.

    Properly using contraceptives requires a strong commitment by all parties involved. With this commitment, you need to make sure that the individuals are properly educated in the reasons to use them, and how to use them. This would be very complicated to do all of this in third world countries. Look at the high rate of teen pregnancies here. What makes us think it would be better accepted there? Also, it would take quite a bit of funding to do this as well.

  • No, I do not think contraception can help save lives in the 3rd world.

    This idea is based on a false premise: The premise is that by reducing population or pregnancy, that you will have healthier people. This is untrue. America uses contraception more then any other developed nation, but is still one of the unhealthiest developed nations. Look at Europe, they make America look pathetic. Fewer people does not mean you have a healthier people or economy.

  • First Educate the population before you introduce Contraception

    If the people your giving contraception to don't know how to use them and why, how do you expect that to reduce starvation and spread of diseases.
    Instead of dishing out money to buy the contraception, how about you develop a scheme where people in these countries can benefit from, for example a gardening club, where people are taught how to grow their own food and how to look after their income and livestock.

  • Due to the lack of contraceptive education and cultural differences in third world countries, the lack of contraceptive use is not really the problem.

    In most third world countries, they have different cultural backgrounds and beliefs, when it comes to having children. Some simply will not use birth control, leaving the problem as not being a lack of contraception, but rather a lack of use. So, even with education and access, the problem of overpopulation, which ends in malnutrition and illness, may not completely end.
