LUCKNOW, INDIA, December 17, 2000: Even as the country struggles with the challenges of over-population, the RSS strongly disapproves of "small families." As noted in their recently prepared booklet, to be distributed during a month-long, door-to-door campaign in Northern India, the RSS attributes the rising number of unwed mothers to increased use of condoms and other family planning methods. Citing some American high schools where infant care is provided for young student's babies, as examples of condom use leading to pre-marital sex, they encourage people not to follow Western ways. They believe a desire for independence on the part of the young in these small familes has lead to an increase in old-age homes, as the children are unwilling to care for their aged parents.
