Hey America keep on contracepting, keep on aborting, keep on viewing humans as a cancer on the planet, embracing gay marriage, and oh yeah let’s keep borrowing from the children we’re preventing and killing in the womb. There will never be any consequences for anything we do. This kind of consequence-less irresponsibility will continue unchecked forever.
Catholic Culture reports:
The birthrate in the United States has fallen to 2.01 children per woman, which is below the replacement rate of 2.1.
The birthrate plunged from 2.08 to 2.01 between 2008 and 2009; the decline affected all races and age groups except the 40-44 age group. “For the first time in years, the rate of births to unmarried women declined,” observes Mary Mederios Kent of the Population Reference Bureau. “However, births to married women declined even more, which pushed the percentage of all US births to unmarried mothers to 41, an all-time high.”
We are headed to Hell in a handbasket and the only thing we’re doing is making the handbasket more comfortable. And gaining speed.
