Image Of The Week – Regulating Reproduction?


Our image of the week comes from one of the Tuesday Gleaner‘s lead stories, entitled ‘Educate People About Having Kids’.

Mother of six Miriam Wong points to an abandoned building on Hanover Street, downtown Kingston, a section of which she has converted into a one-bedroom dwelling that she occupies with her five of her children.

Earlier in the week, principal of Jamaica College, Ruel Reid, charged politicians to be more decisive in ensuring that proper family planning is enforced in the country. This and Wong’s story were in response to that article.

Do you think the government should regulate how many children people are allowed to have? Share your thoughts in the comments section or on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
