Gunna try and get back on this news train again.

In Afghanistan Birth Control is just now being introduced to people and rightfully so. They have a birth rate of 6 children per woman. Some people are outraged because in the Islam faith children are considered blessings from you god. Some woman were so thankful and excited when they heard about and will even take it secretly behind their husbands back. The country needs to more informed about birth control because on average a household in afghanistan will make $700 a year and begins to hurt the economy.

In this article though, this particular birth control advocating group, were making an impact by having a informational session with Mullah's. The priests of the Islam religion. They were paid to come to the session but were in fact leaving them with supportive ideas of what it will do for the country. There is a quote that finishes the article:

"This is an Islamic country,” he said. “If the clerics support this, no one will oppose it."
