Humanosphere Discusses Africa’s Fertility Rate

In Humanosphere, development blogger Tom Murphy discusses the fertility rate in Africa, referencing a recent article by The Economist on the topic, as well as resulting responses. “Where everyone agrees is that contraceptives play an important role in reducing fertility. More importantly, is that they provide the opportunity for choice so that families can grow at a pace that is safest for the mother and child,” Murphy writes (3/18).
