Having Babies: It's Complicated

Last Valentine's Day, Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tsin doubled-down on his call for Malaysian-Chinese population to get married and have babies to counter declining birth rates within the community - but we don't think it's that simple. We speak to Dr. Anasuya on the many factors that lead different people to choose a child-free life, while our listeners chime in with their takes on raising a child in our modern world.
