Why do we need birth control? In ancient times, humans didn’t even have to think about birth control at all. We live in polygamy (especially with more female partners than males) in order to have as many children as possible. But with high mortality from a lack of care systems and medical knowledge. The population therefore does not change much. (He was born a lot but died quickly as well. is a pure natural selection)

Why do we need birth control?

When we develop until the beginning of civilization and to improve the quality of life for a better The average human lifespan continues to increase. Simultaneously with complex social development It is believed that it was at this point that our population began to boom. This means that natural variables are no longer able to control our population. Combined with the advent of religion and systematic anti-contraceptive ideas to increase the population of the mutant. It only made the situation worse. (Which this point is not wrong. In an era where humans die easily If pushed for birth control, we probably wouldn’t have anything left for the race.)

Although we have started monogamy as the main couple in the modern era.

 But this doesn’t make things any better. because Humans can continue to breed anyway (at this point we’re already territorially expanding everywhere on the planet), and each family has a higher rate of offspring than is normal.

Of course, increasing the population of a particular species beyond the limits of nature There will be consequences already. Biological principles have shown that if an excess of one species occurs in a confined space, would result in competition amongst themselves that can lead to extinction from lack of resources, epidemics and self-destruction

So the question is why are we still alive Plus the population is still increasing. Even if you think carefully, we’ve been through countless epidemics. more war And many other great disasters. Why is the world’s population not decreasing at all?

The simple answer is that the animal population principle is rarely applicable to humans, because we are too ‘smart’. Indeed, all situations can nudge millions out of our billions of population totals. But that’s just a small part. There are still plenty of humans left to survive the race. Plus modern humans Resources can conjure through agricultural and industrial processes. Avoid killing each other through diplomacy and negotiation. coupled with the most complex social systems in the universe Including fighting disasters with power and tools. Until the death rate has been reduced exponentially compared to the past hundred years.

Therefore, we are not just a breed that breeds well. But when the points collect to the fullest, then they are in the best shape. 

However, the problem of population numbers still exists. Although not as severe as other species But nowadays we humans have begun to realize that Even if we survive, it won’t be long if we continue to push the limits of the world’s resources like this. including deciding to throw out the ancient traditions of religion because it is no longer applicable to the current situation. that we have the goal of respecting all life and wanting them to thrive in the midst of a seemingly overbearing number of friends in the world.

Therefore, humans choose to control their own species. In addition to solving problems related to the population These issues (such as resource issues) also help prevent STDs and bring ‘mating’ into a more normal demanding activity. to protect the emergence of a new ‘life’ in a family that is not yet ready

Of course, over the past several decades Efforts from the whole medical community governments in different countries and international organizations. Such as the United Nations They all help the contraceptive process become more accessible and understandable among the majority of the population. Not only that Modern social values ​​are beginning to avoid having children or having only one child. This can help pull down the population graph in the long run.
