Childless Couples Are ‘Selfish’ Says Japanese Political Chief

A senior Japanese politician has described couples who decide not to have children as “selfish”, and cited the postwar baby boom as evidence that hardship needn’t be an obstacle to having bigger families.

Toshihiro Nikai, the secretary general of the ruling Liberal Democratic party [LDP], is the latest conservative politician to urge people to have more children, as demographers warn that Japan’s population will decline dramatically in the coming decades.

“During and after the war when people were living on the edge of starvation, nobody said it’s better not to have children because it’s too much trouble,” Kyodo news quoted Nikai as saying at a meeting in Tokyo on Tuesday.
