  •  Mexico went from 7 children per woman to (4+ / 0-)

    2.3 in 30 years once the pill was made available and sterilization was subsidised (but not forced).

    When women get to make the choice, they have fewer kids.

     It certainly helps when vaccination and sanitation programs increase the odds of survival, but only a very small percentage of women anywhere genuinely want to have more than 2-4 kids, and some just don't want any.
