I know a woman who has three kids. She says that sometimes, when she's in the supermarket, complete strangers will stop her and say, "You're not going to have any more children, right?"
That is one of the rudest things I can think of, and I can't believe this has happened more than once. What's wrong with having more than one kid?
It's not just the people here who think it's bad to have multiple children. Almost everywhere, people today are having less children than previous generations did. In fact, in some European countries, the birth rate is less than one. The governments are started to become seriously worried, because if this keeps up, their populations will be cut in half.
It'll be interesting to see how Europe deals with this in the future.
Okay, so that's the bad news. Here's the good news: not everyone in Europe has decided to stop having children. In fact, there are two big groups in Europe with a high birth rate. Can you guess who? It's the Catholics and the Muslims, because both those religions have a strong anti-birth control policy. Makes sense that they have a higher birth rate than others.
Now, I'm not a biologist, but if I understand evolution correctly, this means that in a few generations, the percentage of Catholics and Muslims in Europe is going to skyrocket. Again, it'll be interesting to see how Europe deals with this in the future.
