Why do SOME parents in Africa choose to have children if they are unable to care for them? I am referring to all the children in Africa endangered by famine and other dangers. And now that I think about it, why do parents that are poor anywhere choose to have children if they are unable to care for them? For example, this co-worker of mine is always complaining and always mad at everybody because he is in financial difficulty, yet he and his wife chose to have 12 or 13 children. Thank you.
In other words, it's kind of because of what other people might think of them, right?
