Birth dearth (letter)


by Rosanne Turner

News Weekly, August 11, 2001
Sir,

Further to Bill Muehlenberg's article on Australia's declining fertility (NW, July 14, 2001), the birth dearth will only be effectively reversed when:
  • men face up to their responsibilities as husbands and fathers, thus discontinuing current trends of leaving married and single women to raise children alone;

  • the media represent marriage positively;

  • realistic pre-marriage courses are provided, which emphasise that this is a partnership for life; and

  • a future Prime Minister condemns China for its "one child" policy and criticises the anti-natalist philosophy of the UN and other bodies.


Rosanne Turner,
