  1. SS emails: "Egypt has a serious overpopulation problem not mentioned in the article below. The 18-year-old pregnant woman is a symptom of the avoidance of the birth control issue. Yes, sufficient water for all residents, whatever income level, should be a "right" in this desert environment, if at all possible. But you can't separate the inequities of water delivery from family planning. And blame it just on rich people and mismanagement -- too simplistic."

  2. SS, it's a chicken-and-egg thing. In places where equality of opportunity is greater, and people are not horribly poor, populations don't grow through births - in fact, in almost every case, they shrink. Without that and women's education (rights), you won't see population growth curbs.
