What a stnking "petit bourgeois" question: excatly like those fat americans who dont understand why poor african have 6 or 8 children when they cannot feed them...do you read books sometime?
when you are very poor, when you know that half of your children wont reach 10 years old, when you know that nobody will feed you when you'll be old, then you give yourself more chances and you make more babies, it's maybe not fitting your far super rich logic, but it's perfectly human and logic. We dont live in a "hello kitty" world, you know?

Very few can afford children in the U.S.

We are saddled with supporting most of those 85 billionaires
that have as much money
as the lower 3,500,000,000 people in the world.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

It is actually men who provide the extra chromosome that determines the baby's gender. So if the mother can't have a boy, it is the father's fault!
Besides: don't people in rural areas want more children so they can work the farm?

It is unconscionable to have a lot of children when the world is overpopulated. Forget trying to provide a good living; population explosion is killing the world's resources.

With embryo selection, you can get a boy.  Why don't rural Chinese use embryo selection?  Are they psychologically not advanced enough to understand the word "embryo selection" in Mandarin?

It may not be fair but the vast majority of children in the world have parents who are unable to really afford them.  

With that said global over population, religious issues, ignorance, vastly lowered mortality rates and cultural values feed the over population problem,  

There is no simple solution to this problem and it's one that the politicians simply don't want to deal with, indeed most people prefer to take the ostrich approach and stick their head in the sand as it were and not think about it.

Sooner or later we will collectively pay the price for global over population and I suspect it won't be pretty scene.
