I thought it was the other way around. Healthcare has improved dramatically so people have a greater life expectancy. Also contraception is widely available these days so family planning exists.

I thought we had found ways of fixing people so they lived longer. People where I live are finding it hard to afford homes and are having to wait longer before they get children.
