I saw in some debate topic people talking about Personal/Private choice n life.......I think birth control also part of these category.....& I know lots of smart people having more than 4,5 kids....SmileAm not against the BC, but I see a deep connection between birth control methods n the Women's Liberation Movement. SmileWomen are becoming destructive n thy r destroying family life, their relationships..... They may be trying to rationalise it in many ways, bt thy r trying to be liberated frm the slavery In fact it is a destructive phase....I think the birth control methods have stopped their creative channelization.... EmbarrassedSmileif some channels are not opened to thm they will becom very destructiveSmileBut can go beyond nature cos you have a higher nature also.... One can go beyond biology, n one has to otherwise one is a slave to hormones!Smile

 
These are sweeping statements Vinu Smile While its true that BC gives women some amount of liberty we have to look at other aspects too. For many women BC is not a choice as they have to follow the dictats of their husband & in laws & bear as many children as they have to until they beget a male child & many times even after that. There are many women from the lower socio economic grp who get pregnant every year & have 6-7 kids even if their health does not permit & they have no means to ensure a decent life either for themselves or their kids.

angie thats a very valid point and this is a very good topic. i think we have had enough of awareness. now what we need to do is heavily fine people for having more than one child. bcoz as u said."Some communities are against limiting family size so that they can  increase their census". we can spread awareness among people who r ignorant but not between people who r purposely being ignorant.
also in case of illiterate people, i dont think there is any source of mass communication which the govt. has left unturned to spread awareness among these people.
so i think the best course of action right now would be to punish or heavily fine these people.
there shouldnt be any subsidies, reservations or other welfare measures for people having more than 2 children.

Infact now a days educated family prefer to have only 1 child  due to scarce resourses.

You have put it very well sandya, the disincentive policies was something tried by the late Sanjay Gandhi but it didnt go down very well with the people as it was seen as infringing on the right to freedom of choice.
The problem is that while most educated ppl have understood the personal benefits of family planning & have limited their family size the rest of the population grows uncontrollably & these offsprings wud later pose serious threats to the offsprings of the well meaning parents who had limited their progeny in order to improve their life conditions. Its ironical that this may turn out against them in future.
 
So the dilemma is wheather the educated ppl should also try multiplying to counter the uncontrolled growth of other grp or should the other grp be somehow be made to restrict themselves. The later option seems to be an impossibility so what is to be done ??? Confused
