Too Many Babies

Lydia Enns


I have researched a lot on overpopulation and I have found out that it will become a huge issue here pretty soon. In some parts of the world it is already an issue. In China, for example, they hace past a law saying that you cannot have more than one child per family. I did most of my research from how overpopulation is affecting life in Africa. First of all, when countries are overpopulated, the hardly have enough food to support themselves. In an attempt to save the people from the starvation, the government will most likely have to rely on foreign debt. This puts the country in debt at stretches the government’s already meagre resources. When a country is overpopulated, there is a high rate of unemployment because there just aren’t enough jobs to support the population.

Here is some of my information that helped me on my research.


After I got my results back from my survey, I know now that overpopulation is increasing just like I researched. I believe that in about a few hundred years from now the world will have a huge problem about overpopulation. The world is going to have to make a law about how many babies per family like in China. If they did that then it would make a huge difference. Even if they did of course it will take longer for a lot of people to be in the world, but eventually it will still overpopulate.
