Hans Rosling explains that as life expectancy in a country increases, family size decreases. People want to produce two children that will be able to support them in the future. In developing countries, where the risk of child mortality is high, people have more children to try to ensure that at least two will survive to adulthood. Thus we shouldn't just let children die in developing countries because that will only exacerbate the overpopulation issue.
