I am all about giving to the needy, dying children, and big on saving animals from cruelty but what I dont get is why women, who know they are sick and dying, have no food, and in general not in a good place, for the life of me I dont get why they have kids!! This mainly is happening in Africa and you have to know these ppl arent dumb and they know sex makes babies, and yet the women, even ones who have aides and know they are sick, have sex and bring a child into the world knowing they wont be able to provide for them or give them a good life!!! Has anyone else thought about this before???Answer Question

They certainly don't have all the education or resources that we have. I don't think it's quite as simple as you're making it out to be.

I'm no expert but I once saw a documentary on why people keep having sex when they have aids. A lot of the women are raped there or "can't" refuse their husbands. The men also refuse to wear condoms. So its not exactly always their choice. Perhaps the better answer is to help the women go on birth control. Though it woudn't stop the spred of STD's or rape it would help reduce unwanted babies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics#South_Africa: It is estimated that a woman born in South Africa has a greater chance of being raped than learning how to read. One in three of the 4,000 women questioned by the Community of Information, Empowerment and Transparency said they had been raped in the past year.
http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_rap_percap-crime-rapes-per-capita: 1.19538 per 1,000 people in South Africa are raped, per capita.
