Melinda: Saving children’s lives is an end in itself. But it has other benefits as well. If parents believe their children will survive — and they have access to contraceptives that let them time and space their pregnancies — they’re able to choose how many children to have.
Bill: When a mother can choose how many children to have, her children are healthier, they’re better nourished, their mental capacities are higher — and parents have more time and money to spend on each child’s health and schooling. That’s how families and countries get out of poverty.
