Gaining Perspective: The Real War on Women

| October 11, 2014

We’re doing to ourselves what women are being forced to do in countries like China and India. This article is helpful for gaining perspective for what we can expect the effects of this mass genocide will cost us. Women’s health concerns (ie death, cancer, infertility), demographic anomalies, not to mention brutally unlawful atrocities committed against […]

Premature Births Have Skyrocketed Since the Legalization of Abortion

| June 19, 2014

It is one of those obvious connections I cannot comprehend the world not seeing. Actually, liberals, media, and feminists are covering it up, which is why the rest of the world can’t see it. They’re not being told. At least 59 studies to date confirm that forcibly opening a woman’s cervix to commit an induced abortion can lead to an […]

The USA’s Childless Women

| January 28, 2014

The story of changing fertility and demographic structures is continuing to gain media attention in the US. The Pew Research centre has crunched the numbers from a recent UN report, the World Fertility Report 2012. According to the UN’s data, US women who are coming to the end of their childbearing years (40-44 years old) are among the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

World Congress in Madrid affirms the natural family

| June 8, 2012

From Mercatornet: The sixth World Congress of Families, held in Madrid on the last weekend of May, drew 3100 delegates to address the issues confronting the family today. In a concluding statement the congress listed the challenges: “Ideologies of statism, atomistic individualism, and sexual revolution challenge the very essences of marriage and family. Recent legal and public […]

Yet more reasons for China to change course

| May 2, 2012

From Mercatornet’s Demography is Destiny blog: I thought today that I would follow up Shannon’s blogpost from last week about China’s demographic decline.  This piece from the Economist shows that the inexorable rise of the Dragon will be hindered by its demographic Achilles heel.  According to the UN medium variant population projection, China’s population will […]

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 […]

The Coming Demographic Catastrophe

| February 20, 2012

We picked up our local paper last Tuesday to read the lead story: that Kenya would begin a strong contraceptive push to bring down its population growth in the next 20 years. Key to the article was the easy-to-miss one-line admission that foreign aid to East Africa is now dependent on the EA community’s acceptance […]

Unnatural Selection

| February 8, 2012

From Mercatornet: A book by a pro-choice feminist faces up to an unintended consequence of the West’s fertility war. This brave and timely book has many strengths and one glaring, but understandable, weakness. The strength of this book is the reporting. Mara Hvistendahl, a liberal, pro-choice feminist, painstakingly documents the catastrophic consequences of the worldwide […]

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 […]
