I don't know how many, but I know a lot of people die every day there. Honestly, I feel sorry for them (obviously), but one question that's on my head the whole time..
WHY THE **** ARE THEY KEEP MAKING LIKE 1000 BABIES/WOMAN?!! Seriously, less population = more resource. If they're so horny, wouldn't we be saving more lives by donating condoms instead of water/food?

Or maybe I have no idea how it is there so I shouldn't be talking.. Idk.

It's just the way the world is man. You can't change people's mentalities in a month, it can take centuries.

There is a lot of rape, perhaps that is why there is always so many kids.


Still, I bless the rains down in Africa. There really isn't much a hundred men or more could ever do.

at strato-massacre

And I don't know.
I guess they need the food more right now.
But I do seem to remember some campaign or other that donated condoms to Africa, so I guess they get both.
I think it's time for a change.

We're talking about deaths that people care about, that's the opposite.

yeah, he obviously said that condoms caused AIDS
he said that condoms dont prevent AIDS you idiot. and he's right, condoms make people think they can have sex whenever the hell they want and they wont get sick but that's not true.

also, in Africa they need a much greater labor workforce than in america or other developed countries, so how do you increase your workforce? make more kids. Less developed countries have different priorities than more developed countries (which promote individualism)

i think its something to do with the church.
everyone knows that the christians there are very pious, as they have nothing else to put their hopes in. i reckon the priests are telling them to keep having children.
but idk tbh...

Call me a cold hearted bitch but, people die every day, it's nothing new.

And condoms cause aids? Ha ha ha that's a new one to me!

Let's say that you're the parent. Wouldn't you want to have children especially if you live in places with strong traditional ideas and want to keep your culture alive?

simply put...religion

Their religion, be it Islam or Christianity (specifically catholocism) thells them they must be fruitful and all that jazz. As per the condom thing... as someone already said, for the catholics, they have a decree from the pope. No condoms. And as for the muslims, I imagine it's a death sentence for that at this point lol.

The average life expectancy in most Sub-Saharan African countries is in the mid to low 40s. The infancy death-rate is astronomical.

The main reasons the birth rate is so high are:

A) Many of their children die at birth or just a few years after
B) Since most families live off of subsistance farming, they want to have a large number of kids to
i) help on the farm
ii) take care of the parents when they are old
C) Many forms of contraception are unavailable or just completely unheard of


Don't judge lest you be judged.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.

It was mostly a question I wasn't aware of other aspects as I already mentioned. And this basically answers my questions so I won't be here anymore. Thanks Seryaph

TS, the situation is incredibly complicated and stretches back for hundreds of years. There is no immediate solution in sight. You seem to have a quite simplified view on the issue, I would go on a big ranty/explainy type thing, but I'm in the midst of an essay.
