Mudede's call on contraceptive ban unjustified

EDITOR — I believe the call by the Registrar-General Tobaiwa Mudede cannot go unchallenged.

I believe that Mudede might have his reasons for calling for the ban on contraceptives, but this is not practical with the lifestyle that people are living at this day and age.

He might have a point that families have become smaller but there are reasons that resulted in the current status quo.

Most people have resorted to having small families because they cannot afford to have bigger families because of the high cost of living.

I believe that during Mudede’s time many families had an average of six to eight children and by then the cost of living was affordable.

But nowadays people can only afford to have a maximum of three children to be able to provide for them properly.

I believe that if the contraceptives are banned there will be more divorces as most families have challenges making ends meet.

Apart from the high rate of divorces, those most affected are the children who end up abusing drugs because of the broken homes. The ban would also result in many cases of baby dumping which had been reduced because women have access to contraceptives and fewer cases of unwanted pregnancies.

Apart from that there will be an increase in street children who will roam the streets and more school drop outs as parents fail to take care of their children.

I believe there are more problems if Mudede’s call is to be considered than there are advantages.

What is the point of having more children that you cannot look after?

Let families decide on the number of children they want and provide for them.

Mai Kuda.

    Even the President has three children. Why should we have more in this uncertain economic environment?

    The reasons for family size vary from time to time and place to place.My thesis which is subject to challenges is that the size of a family is related to the level of education of the parents especially the wife, granted the higher the level of education of the wife the smaller the family size.

    There is no relationship of the size of family can be compared to to the level of education.This is also true that Jesus said the things of GOD was hidden to the wise and prudent and revealed to those who can believe it.There is no one time the Bible ever spoke of family reduction after GOD said replenish earth.That is the spirit of Nimrod which need contraceptives thats why GOD confounded their language because of disobedience.The system of women was perfectly made and there is a safe period when pregnancy cannot take place.But sex has became a pleasure that's why there are many cases of divorce,unwanted pregnancies or child dumping.The moral of women has gone so low than of a beast which does sex for her young ones only and when she is on hit.Thats a GODLY mind which has been shown by Reg. Gen. Mudede.
