American Extinction: More Governments Are Worried About Fertility Rates

| January 14, 2014

A recent United Nations fertility report collates some interesting statistics about the fertility of the world as a whole.  Put simply, – and no surprises here – it finds that the developed world is not reproducing at the rate necessary to ensure the replacement of generations. Levels of childlessness (i.e. women who choose, or are […]

Two Feet From Murder

| May 17, 2013

From Generations with Vision with Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner. “Americans are inconsistent. It’s just an inconsistency that’s betraying itself right now and I think we need to press the inconsistency. This is one important way in which the Christian gospel reaches people, when we press inconsistencies. We point out to them that they are […]

Why is Europe committing demographic suicide?

| April 13, 2013

Sobering: Demographers, economists and psychologists are scratching their heads over a phenomenon that breaks all their statistical models and paradigms of human behaviour. Why would people who are prosperous (and, despite the current situation, western Europe is) not want to do what human beings have always done and leave a posterity? How can they contemplate […]

The truth about big families

| April 9, 2013

This is a fun one from Mercatornet: The Sydney Morning Heraldrecently reported that “less than 2 per cent of Australian women have six or more children.” Well, I must know so many of that two per cent. I know families of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and a few with an even dozen. Whenever there […]

America’s Baby Bust

| February 5, 2013

From the Wall Street Journal: For more than three decades, Chinese women have been subjected to their country’s brutal one-child policy. Those who try to have more children have been subjected to fines and forced abortions. Their houses have been razed and their husbands fired from their jobs. As a result, Chinese women have a […]

The Need to Breed

| January 9, 2013

Here is a great post from Get Along Home that bluntly states an obvious truth that our short sighted, “me centered” modern society seems to be oblivious to: We don’t seem to understand (and by “we”, I mean “not me”) that children are a literal investment. You have to put in the work to get […]

Paul Ehrlich – he’s still got it!

| April 28, 2012

Hard to believe this guy is still making “predictions” and claiming he has been accurate in the past when all of his dire prophecies about worldwide starvation failed to come true: What do you know about Paul Ehrlich? If you’re anything like me, probably not a lot more than the following: in 1968 he published […]

The Long-Term Importance of Fertility

| March 24, 2012

I meant to post something about this during the squall that erupted over Obama’s contraception mandate, but that’s the same week a ship off Mombasa dropped anchor on the cable carrying high-speed Internet into Kenya, and life online slowed down to a crawl. That’s okay. Plenty of other folks took time to comment, both on […]

Destroying Children Will Destroy Us

| February 6, 2012

Several sobering pieces in the past couple of weeks: The distorting of the human sex ratio ~ Even a rational optimist is pessimistic about some things. Here’s one: the gradual distortion of the human sex ratio by sex-selective abortion. A new essay by the demographer Nicholas Eberstadt concludes that “the practice has become so ruthlessly […]

Rethinking Contraception

| January 20, 2012

Several share-worthy posts have come through the newsfeed this week: Anti-Baby Pill Father Laments Bulgaria’s Demographic Bust ~ Djerassi, now 88 years old, was one of three researchers whose formulation of the synthetic progestagen Norethisterone marked a key step in the creation of the first oral contraceptive pill. He has repeatedly said that young Europeans […]

Elisabeth’s Barrenness and Ours

| December 27, 2011

From Mark Steyn over at National Review Online: We now live in Elisabeth’s world — not just because technology has caught up with the Deity and enabled women in their 50s and 60s to become mothers, but in a more basic sense. The problem with the advanced West is not that it’s broke but that […]

Feminism gets the last laugh on fertility

| November 29, 2011

From Barbara Kay at National Post: This just in from blogger Mollie Hemingway:  “Why do we lie about female fertility?” Hemingway is a wife and mother of two children. She’s now 37 and would like a third child, but realized that at her age easy conception is the exception, no longer the rule. She goes […]

The Brutality of “Population Control”

| November 29, 2011

From Demography is Destiny: About a month ago this tragic story from China surfaced in the Western media (the UK’s Guardian).  It’s a terribly sad story about a mother, Ma Jihong, who died on an operating table in Lijin, Shandong province, when she was forced by state officials to have a late-term abortion.  Why were […]

“Baby-boomers failed to plant their gardens”

| November 29, 2011

We post often on demographics, because childbearing (or the lack of it) has huge consequences on our world–both on families and on nations. I’ve picked several excellent pieces to share (now that Internet is working again consistently here!): From Pundit & Pundette: “Pregnancy, childbirth, babies, toddlers, teenagers — they introduce uncontrollable variables into life. Having […]
