Ok so first off i would like to state i am not fully educated in this topic and what im about to say and ask is purely from what i see and hear (on tv) .
Also im not being or trying to be insensitive or rude or anything, mayby my suggestion is easier said than done/more complicated and curious as to why these things happen.
So tonight i watched a show of a family in a third world country and they lived in extreme poverty
-going without food for days
-living in a made shelter
-no running water
-hole on the ground for a toilet
-no electricity and so on.
-very short life span
But what got to me is that they had alot of children and the youngest being only months old.
I just cant understand why they had one child to begin with let alone continually having more.
Im not saying they dont deserve to have children or that its their fault or anything but i just cant understand why they would have more and more when living in such horrible conditions.
For me i could never bring a child into a life were it would actually have no life really at all.
So my question is why, what are their reasons for continually having children?
My idea is - could providing these women with free continious contraception along with food, water, shelter, be a good way to help them reduce the amount of people living in extreme poverty?
For myself i couldnt imagine wanting to do the deed if i lived like that full stop. But i can see that mayby that is one thing to give them self pleasure/joy/release and obviously its something that only comes natural when man and woman fall inlove.
It pains me when world vision adds come on tv and show mothers with 3/4 kids that a very anorexic and doing dangerous things just to get a tiny meal.
Im first thought/feeling is anger!
Why are we spending million on a stupid olympics when we could save thousands with that money.
Why are famous people buying a house in 3 different countries when there are kids who have no safe place to sleep.
Angry that the government/queen dont do enough to help while they sit on their private plans and ride in their horse and carriage.
Then my 2nd feeling is sadness.
Sad that a baby has to feel extreme hunger with no end in sight
Sad that a 6 yr old has to risk their life for a meal
Sad that a mother has to stay in a hut while being very sick and having to watch their kids starve
Then my 3rd feeling returns to frustration
Frustrated as to why they keep having babies.
And the babies that survive then go on to have babies and the cycle repeats.
And my 4th feeling is anger and hate.
Hate towards government for not caring for their people
Hate towards famous people who spend thousands on bed linen, who import house furniture from around the world for thousands of dollars.
Hate famous people who give a thousand dollars to charity and then think they have done enough.
These people have the power and the money to change so many kids lives!
Just so angry that families have to suffer the way they do.
Its not fair
Its not right
Its not ok
