We just witnessed the events at the recent London 2012 Olympics. Noticing the numbers garnering the coveted gold medals, this makes us think about what position to take as regards population control or the Reproductive Health (RH) bill. It’s noticeable that you can have better leeway for selection when there are several to choose from. For example, U.S., Russia, and China got many gold medals and they have big populations.
The right option therefore is not to focus on limiting population but to give better training and education. The deeper principle is that we have to respect life and let it run its normal course. That’s what the Bible lore tells us: “God blessed them, saying to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and conquer it” (Gen. 1:28).
