US birth rate reaches record low June 3, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, error, family, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, paganism, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society, The End.
We’re heading for European levels. Socialism, is there anything it can’t do?!?
Maybe the 14 and under and over 45 demographics will save us.
68 live births per 1000 women is, at present, about replacement rate (it varies, of course, according to death rate). You can see how, since mass contraception and then abortion were legalized, the birth rate has plummeted to below replacement rate, and almost instantaneously, in demographic terms. To have a birth rate collapse by nearly 50% in just over a decade is probably unprecedented in human history outside dire calamities like wars, plagues, and civilizational collapse.
Oh, well……. that’s a calamity if I’ve ever seen one. Damnable poison.
You can see the US has not been at replacement level but a couple of brief times since the mid-70s. Immigration has been required to keep the population growing. The native born fertility rate is even lower. Liberal white and Asian women have some of the lowest birth rates of any cohort, with Jews being the very lowest (0.6 babies per, but the growth of the orthodox/hasidic is starting to raise this up a bit).
The future belongs to those who show up. Since the libs are deciding in increasing numbers not to, they require immigration and indoctrination to continue their political dominance, which, I think, may be much more fragile than it appears. A sudden change could sweep the landscape and make much of this a bad memory.
BUT……I don’t see much evidence of that just yet.
