Women In The United States Are Having Fewer Babies Than Ever Before In History by Michael Snyder for End of the American Dream
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the fertility rate in the United States has never been lower than it is right now. Unlike some of our other problems, this is not an immediate crisis because we definitely have plenty of people. The population of the U.S. is currently well over 300 million, and more immigrants keep pouring in with each passing day. So we are in no danger of running out of people, but the fact that Americans are choosing to have so few babies is yet another symptom of the social decay that is eating away at our nation like cancer. From a very early age, young Americans are being trained not to value marriage, parenthood and the traditional family unit. As a result, we are on an extremely self-destructive path, and there is no way that we are going to have a positive future as a country unless we change course.
The fertility rate in the U.S. has been in decline for many years, and just when you thought that it couldn’t possibly go any lower, it did…
The general fertility rate in the United States continued to decline last year, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.
“The 2018 general fertility rate fell to another all-time low for the United States,” the researchers wrote in the report, published Wednesday.
In fact, a separate report that was put out by the National Center for Health Statistics in January revealed that our fertility rate has now fallen below replacement level…
In 2017, the total fertility rate for the United States continued to dip below what’s needed for the population to replace itself, according to a separate report published by the National Center for Health Statistics in January.
In other words, not factoring in immigration, our population would actually start shrinking if our fertility rate continued to stay at the current level.
So why is this happening?
Certainly our poisonous environment is a major contributing factor. Sperm counts are way down all over the western world, and that could soon become a massive problem. We are literally poisoning our reproductive systems by what we eat, by what we drink and by the air that we breathe, and our phones are perhaps the biggest danger of all. And now that 5G is being rolled out, many experts are sounding the alarm louder than ever. For much more on this, please see this article.
In addition, dramatic cultural changes have completely altered the way that Americans view parenthood.
Once upon a time, getting married and having lots of children was considered to be an integral part of the American Dream. But now our young people are being encouraged to put off marriage and parenthood, and they are constantly being told that “getting an education” and pursuing a “career” are far more important.
At the same time, the single life is continually being glamorized in popular music, on television and in the movies. Marriage is often portrayed as “the end of freedom”, and the idea that having children “can ruin your life” is relentlessly promoted.
As a result, the marriage rate in the U.S. has never been lower, the fertility rate in the U.S. is at an all-time low, and Americans are getting married for the first time later in life than ever.
Have all these dramatic changes made us happier?
