Facts About family planning in India

Street dwellers in MumbaiRather than rely on economic growth,calls for the German Foundation for World Population,the "evil" to tackle at the root and stem the population explosion as far as possible.But how? Unwanted pregnancy
Often "the women in these countries lack the knowledge about proper prevention or they are afraid of health consequences.Only through education and guidance,these obstacles can be overcome,"called Renate Baehr of the German Foundation for World Population (DSW),one of the possible measures.

There still every year 76 million women have unwanted pregnancies worldwide."It is urgent to invest more in family planning and education projects in developing countries, " said Baehr on.

Economic constraints dictate the blessing of children

"In a country like India where their children are the only retirement savings,there is a single economic compulsion to extended family.Parents need to have as many children as a precaution to make sure that enough are still alive when they will be old,"says Sylvain Coiplet by the Institute for Social threefold one of the main triggers for the population explosion in India."This constraint must be eliminated by the pension you give a broader basis."
