I also know that people have pride. Sometimes pride brings problems. All the war, poverty and wrongdoings are caused by pride. A piece of land, survival of the race, wealth, power are pl ...


You do realize that you are talking about people who don't have indoor plumbing or food to eat.  How accessible do you think birth control is?  And do you also realize the appalling figures of rape in africa?

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 starve to death.

An analogy will be, if a person has AIDS, even though sex is the right of the individual he should not have sex if there is no protection. Because his action could result in the death of another human being.

Rape is caused by selfish desire of the rapist.

So it is a clear case on selfishness.

Let's talk about those who have consensual relationship.

I think it is very irresponsible of parents to bring a child into a starving world.

I get very angry when I see the starving kids.

Can someone tell me why?

Let us not go into religious deb ...

If African parents would listen to you,they would be extinct by now,or at least endangered.

Every human will go extinct one day. That is death.

I am aware that many wold be appalled at me suggesting it is ok to have the starving africans disappear one day. Is the existence of a race a justification for the sacrifice of many children? Starving to death is a slow and painful death. It torture every aspect of the human body. It brings torture to the mind, body and soul of the person who is suffering.

At the end of the day after death race, land, pride, power nothing matters. All are meaningless. There is only one thing that matters in the end. All the sacrifices of the babies to continue the family line are all meaningless.

I am not advocating abortion or genocide.

My stand is, it is morally wrong to have children when the parent cannot ensure basic needs for the child to survive.

Some people think it is cruel for me to suggest that the parents are selfish to have children knowing the child will most likely not survive. I truly believe it is selfish and immoral. Just like parents with AIDs wanting to have child when there is a lack of medical service to ensure the child is AIDS free.

Parents with AIDS can have a healthy child with proper medical attention. It is just immoral and selfish for parents with AIDS to have children when they cannot ensure enough medical attention for the child to survive.
