Want S’poreans to have more babies?

Get the female partners to “do God” and go to religious services.

Recently, six MPs from the People’s Action Party (PAP) Women’s Wing released a position paper reported that 58% of respondents in a survey said that the cost of raising children is a main concern when deciding to have another child. What do you expect any PAP report to say? It’s all about money is a PAP Hard Truth: Ex-PM’s money obsession causing PAP problems

Maybe, it’s nothing to do with money?

Here’s an interesting audio clip on why going to church can make a woman give birth: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p07jgdcd

Here’s a summary of the clip.

Jonathan Last, author of What to Expect When No-one’s Expecting, explains how most interventions to increase the fertility rate have failed in countries around the world. While negative incentives seem to work, such as China’s one child policy, encouraging people to have more children seems less successful.

As Last explains, a far larger influence on a woman’s decision to have more children than race, education or geography, is how often she attends religious services.
