There are a few reasons why is India’s population growing so rapidly:
- Every parent wants a son- They will keep giving birth until they had a son
- Child labor- Poor parents produce many offsprings so that so that their children can work and bring money to the family.
- Alcoholism and illiteracy – peasants who are illiterate and drunk are not aware of birth control methods and precautions against pregnancy.
- age old belief- Children are gifts from god and aborting them is against god’s will.
