    Polish government asks citizens to multiply like rabbits

    WARSAW — The Polish government is encouraging citizens to go forth and multiply like rabbits.

    The health ministry of Poland, which has one of the lowest birth rates in Europe, put out a short video saying, ‘‘If you ever want to be a parent, follow the example of rabbits.’’

    It is the latest step by the mostly Catholic country of 38 million to reverse a shrinking population.
