Russia's dwindling population

I'm sure you've heard the news about Russia's dwindling population and the government offering incentives for their citizens to have more babies. As I watched the report I was struck at how sad it is that one of the greatest gifts God has given us, LIFE, needs incentives for us to want to receive that gift. I watched as one family shared with the world their brand new .... mini-van, and then the baby that secured that deal. What next, incentives for raising the child? I can't imagine a child brought into a family that wanted him/her for the sole purpose of getting a new car.
