Letter to Heads of Schools:Celebrating World Population Day 2014…World Demography declining

1st July 2014

Dear Heads of Schools/Higher Secondaries/Colleges,

As you are aware, World Population Day is observed around the world on the 11th of July every year to bring awareness about the so called Population explosion and the issues related to the same. But is there an actual population explosion? Are the resources of the world getting exhausted due to the so called ‘ever increasing population’?

The reality is totally different. In fact the Total fertility rate (TFR: average number of children that will be born to a woman in that particular geographical area) and the Growth rate (GR) in most parts of the world have plummeted down to such an extent that from now on it seems near to impossible to even maintain the existing population.  To replace our population we require a TFR of at least 2.1. In India it is 2.4 (2012) while in Goa it is 1.6 (2013). In the recent past we had our H’ble CM lamenting on this fact on the floor of the Legislative Assembly.   Continue reading

MATTER FOR PARISH BULLETINS ON NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING

General Information on Natural Family Planning

Natural Family Planning (NFP) methods represent authentic family planning. They can be used to both achieve and to postpone a pregnancy. NFP makes use of periodic abstinence from sexual intercourse based upon the observation of the woman’s natural signs of fertility, in order to space births or to limit the number of children when there is a serious reason to do so… this practice fosters in couples an attitude of respect and wonder in the face of human life, which is sacred. It also fosters profound respect for one’s spouse, which is necessary for… authentic intimacy. (Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, 2009, p. 20) Continue reading
