Mizos to have more kidsMizoram, March 12, 2013: The Presbyterian Church in Mizoram has passed a resolution to launch a campaign advocating women to conceive more children.

The decision was taken at the 45th general conference of the Presbyterian Church Women Wing in Aizawl on March 9.

The delegates decided that the matter should be taken up by the central committee of the Kohhran Hmeichhia or the Women Wing and prepare the detailed program.

The agenda was initiated by Bungkawn and Bawngkawn Pastoral women wings which said that all Mizo couples should be encouraged to have more children.

They added that poor couples who have more children should be provided some assistance.

Earlier, the Presbyterian Church leaders have issued statements encouraging Mizo couples to bear more children and the womenfolk seemed to have taken the cue by adopting the resolution.

Though it might be in contravention to the national family planning policy, church leaders have always propounded the concept of multiplying in accordance with the teachings of the Bible in the Old Testament.

The delegates also adopted an agenda that decent dress should be formulated for the bride and the bridesmaid during church wedding.
