America’s birth rate is now a national emergency


THE WEEK – The new birth rate numbers are out, and they’re a disaster. There are now only 59.6 births per 1,000 women, the lowest rate ever recorded in the United States. Some of the decrease is due to good news, which is the continuing decline of teen pregnancies, but most of it is due to people getting married later and choosing to have fewer children. And the worst part is, everyone is treating this news with a shrug.

Sabba – A friend of mine  made the following comment on this story (from April 2016): “The dissonance to expect people create life within a culture of death…”

    Lets be realistic. the cities not only in the US but in the whole world are getting bigger and bigger every time. In the US the cities get bigger in short time not only due to the birthrate but the massive numbers of the newcomers from all over the world. We also need a family planning, every thing has a limit, and people are having kids like there is no tomorrow. The food and water resources will be the big problem soon.

    Plenty of resources, just no will to redistribute the wealth equitably. The US is a culture of DEATH destroying life even as it tries to create it. We’ve passed the point of no return. Until the IDIOTS pushing a culture of mass ecocide, suicide & genocide down our throats, trying to DEPOPULATE the planet to fewer than 1 billion humans, there’s no sense in having any more of us. We are the most dangerous and out of control species on the planet, and we endanger ALL other life forms.

    I wouldn’t care if nations didn’t try to replace themselves with other people. Look at Japan, they have a massively low birth rate, but at least they don’t combine the low birth rate with a mass influx of foreign peoples. A nation’s people is precious and it’s quite sad that countries like Germany and others just replace themselves. Germany won’t even really look German in 50 years it will be a different culture and a different people, pretty sad.

    Young men having observed the prejudice by family courts against them no longer want to play the marriage game.

    BTW I doubt that a lower brith rate will hurt the country. Just less crowding, less pollution, less global warming.
