“Naturally it’s known that 3rd world countries have a higher birth rate due to limited accessibility of contraceptives and limited education, however, due to the poverty we also have a higher death rate and life expectancy is lower than first world countries. This is not a good stat considering we can barely support the current people let alone new ones to this country.”
