Nobody die without sex. Sex is the right of an individual, I agree. More important is the moral obligation of the parent to ensure they bring a child into the world where they will not starv ...


Sex is a basic human need.  Maslow put it on the same level as food and water.  

We are driven to from being hardwired, and it makes us more psychologically stable.

You're not going to get people to stop having sex.  You're reminding me of the christians who believe they can teach kids abstinence instead of giving them birth control to stop teen pregnancy.

Its a naive approach.

I think you are seeing this from a chinese perspective.  The one-child policy was put in place to reduce starvation.  I agree with it although it is still harsh.

But the difference is, in china when that policy was put in place, you had a government behind it.  Birth control was made widely available.  Abortions were made widely available.

Every possible means to control pregnancies were a focus.  This is not the case in african countries.
