Let elderly people 'hurry up and die', says Japanese minister
Justin McCurry in Tokyo
guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 22 January 2013

Taro Aso says he would refuse end-of-life care and would 'feel bad' knowing treatment was paid for by government

Japan's new government is barely a month old, and already one of its most senior members has insulted tens of millions of voters by suggesting that the elderly are an unnecessary drain on the country's finances.

Taro Aso, the finance minister, said on Monday that the elderly should be allowed to "hurry up and die" to relieve pressure on the state to pay for their medical care.

"Heaven forbid if you are forced to live on when you want to die. I would wake up feeling increasingly bad knowing that [treatment] was all being paid for by the government," he said during a meeting of the national council on social security reforms. "The problem won't be solved unless you let them hurry up and die."

US Jewish birth rate in the US compared to Israel - evidence of SDT:

http://www.simpletoremember.com/articles/a/jews-and-jewish-birthrate/
...
It is not as if the contours of today’s demographic crisis are hidden from view. “American Jews See Population, Birthrate Drop,” screamed a recent headline in the Los Angeles Times. “Low Fertility Key to 2000 Census,” proclaimed a front-page story in the country’s largest-circulation Jewish newspaper. By the year 2006, according to a policy institute in Israel, the American Jewish community, hitherto the world’s largest, will for the first time fall behind the Jewish community of Israel in size
...
... disagreement as to the total size of the American Jewish population. Although most scholars have settled on a figure of between 5.2 and 5.5 million, a few, counting both Jews and the Gentiles living with them, would add as many as 1.2 million more. On the basis of the consensus figure of 5.5 million, the Jewish population of the United States has, at best, remained static for the past 50 years, despite the influx during that same period of at least a half-million Jewish immigrants.
...
Smith’s study also makes plain why the Jewish age structure has become so skewed. For one thing, as the 2000-01 NJPS confirms, Jews marry later than other Americans, with the greatest disparities occurring in the age group between twenty-five and thirty-four.

For Jewish women in particular, late marriage means lower rates of fertility compared with other Caucasian women—who themselves are barely producing babies at replacement level (figured at 2.1 children).

The fertility gap is especially enormous among Jewish women under the age of thirty-five; even though the gap narrows considerably over the course of the next ten years, at no point do Jewish women attain the fertility levels of their non-Jewish peers or bear children in numbers sufficient to offset population losses from natural causes.

It is true that low fertility rates among Jewish women are not a new phenomenon.

Economic advancement, the availability of birth control, and rising educational achievement caused Jewish fertility to start dropping as long ago as the middle of the 19th century in Europe and later in other modernizing societies like the United States. Nor, as is well known, is the phenomenon limited to Jews, or to the U.S.; in contemporary Europe and Japan, it has reached proportions that threaten catastrophe.

Still, Jewish women in the United States are significantly less fertile than their white, Gentile counterparts. To explain this fact, the demographer Frank Mott has pointed to the extraordinary rates of educational achievement among Jewish women, who spend significantly more time than their Gentile peers in programs of higher learning. For many of them, still more childless years follow as they work to advance their careers.
...
But this brings us to the one major exception to the general rule—namely, Orthodox Jews. Not only do the Orthodox suffer many fewer losses from intermarriage, but their fertility rate is far above the Jewish norm.

As against the overall average of 1.86 children per Jewish woman, an informed estimate gives figures ranging upward from 3.3 children in “modern Orthodox” families to 6.6 in Haredi or “ultra-Orthodox” families to a whopping 7.9 in families of Hasidim.

These numbers are, of course, difficult to pin down definitively, but anecdotal evidence is compelling. In a single year, according to a nurse at one hospital in the Lakewood, New Jersey area serving a right-wing Orthodox population, 1,700 babies were born to 5,500 local families, yielding a rate of 358 births per thousand women. (The overall American rate is 65 births per thousand women.)
...

[ now lets compare this to Israel: ]

Latest Statistics: Rising Jewish Births in Israel

Demographic data released in honor of “Family Day,” shows increase in Jewish births, single-parent households.

Good news for Jewish demographics in Israel: the latest statistics released by the Central Bureau of Statistics shows a rising birth rate in the Jewish sector. However, Jewish family sizes are still smaller than those in the Arab population.

The data on families and family size published on Monday in honor of the beginning of “Family Day” showed that the number of Jewish births has increased by 45 percent in less than 15 years, from 80,400 in 1995 to 117,000 in 2008.

At the same time, the Arab birthrate has remained stable at approximately 39,000 a year. As a result, the “fertility gap” between Arab and Jewish families has shrunk to only 0.7 percent, and the proportion of Jewish births has grown from under 70 percent in 1995 to 75 percent in 2008.

Demographer Yoram Ettinger said the statistics were cause for celebration among those who desire a strong Jewish majority in Israel.

...
According to the census, the average Israeli family includes 3.7 members.  Jewish families averaged at 3.5 members, as compared to 4.9 in Arab families.

The data also revealed that there are roughly 101,000 families led by single parents, out of a total of 1,690,000 families with children under the age of 18. In total, approximately 173,000 children and teens are growing up in single-parent households.

The number of single women raising children alone – both single and divorced – shot up by 54 percent in less than a decade. In the year 2000 an estimated 8,400 women headed single-parent households, while that number increased to 12,900 in 2007.

The largest Israeli families on average are located in Judea and Samaria, where the average family numbers 4.5 members, followed by families in the Jerusalem area and in the north with 4.3 and 4.1 members, respectively. Families in central Israel had an average of 3.6 members, compared to 3.5 members per family in the Haifa district, 3.8 members per family in the south, and 3.2 members per family in Tel Aviv.

More than one-third of the Arab families in Israel number six or more members, while only 10 percent of Jewish families include six or more members.

[ oh and a statistical question regarding abortion : ]

Crisis Pregnancy Group Reflects Jewish Divide On Abortion
...
Pelman believes the non-Orthodox Jewish community has made abortion too acceptable, and aims to bring more Jewish babies into the world. Using abortion statistics from Planned Parenthood and the 2000 National Jewish Population Survey, she estimatesJewish women undergo some 10,000 abortions annually.

Baby bust? National birthrate hits an all-time low due to weak economic recovery
During the recession, the birthrate dropped after a high in 2007
The recession has been officially over for four years

The birthrate hit an all-time low in 2011 and stayed there in 2012
Economic uncertainty coupled with a general trend towards fewer births means there may not be a bounce-back in birthrates

By Alex Greig

PUBLISHED: 09:10 EST, 9 July 2013  | UPDATED: 09:35 EST, 9 July 2013

...
'When times are up, births go up,' D’Vora Cohn, a senior writer at Pew Research Center, told Today. 'When times are bad, births go down.'

Despite the recession being officially over for four years, the weak recovery and economic uncertainty has resulted in the national birthrate hitting an all-time low in 2011, and staying there in 2012.

There were 63.2 births per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44 in 2012, according to the Center for Disease Control, down from 69.3 births per 1,000 women in that age bracket in 2007. The connection between the economy and birthrates generally holds true, but there are often other factors at play as well.



According to Jonathan Last, author of 'What to Expect When No One’s Expecting: America’s Coming Demography Disaster,' for decades the national birthrate has been generally much lower than during the Baby Boom years of the '50s and '60s.

He says that factors such as higher education levels have seen women giving birth later in life and sometimes having less children overall.
...
Some couples are missing their window of opportunity to have a baby because they never feel financially secure enough to commit to having a child.

Should we care that smart women aren't having kids?

New research is fueling outrage that women who don't have kids aren't just selfish losers, but dumb ones as well

Sadhbh Walshe   

theguardian.com, Wednesday 7 August 2013 09.56 EDT

It seems that women these days are too clever for their own good, at least when it comes to making babies. Research emerging from the London School of Economics examining the links between intelligence and maternal urges in women claims that more of the former means less of the latter. In an ideal world, such findings might be interpreted as smart women making smart choices, but instead it seems that this research is just adding fuel to the argument that women who don't have children, regardless of the reason, are not just selfish losers but dumb ones as well.

Satoshi Kanazawa, the LSE psychologist behind the research, discussed the findings that

maternal urges drop by 25% with every extra 15 IQ points

in his book The Intelligence Paradox. In the opening paragraph of the chapter titled "Why intelligent people are the ultimate losers in life", he makes his feelings about voluntary childlessness very clear:


If any value is deeply evolutionarily familiar, it is reproductive success. If any value is truly unnatural, if there is one thing that humans (and all other species in nature) are decisively not designed for, it is voluntary childlessness. All living organisms in nature, including humans, are evolutionarily designed to reproduce. Reproductive success is the ultimate end of all biological existence.

...

He says that it's not yet known why intelligent women are having less babies but says it's not the reason most people assume, that women with higher IQs are more likely to go to college and have demanding careers. Basically he seems to come to the paradoxical conclusion that intelligent women just aren't all that wise.

I'm not sure why he dismisses the link between higher education and fewer kids as there's census data that shows women with advanced degrees are less likely to have children. (I should probably note that Kanazawa's judgement has been called into question in the past, regarding a study in which he found that black women are less attractive). His ultimate conclusion, however, is that intelligent women's failure to reproduce is bad for them because they are flying in the face of their biological destiny and it's also bad for society because fewer intelligent moms means fewer intelligent kids and that may have drastic implications for the nationwide IQ.
...
Anyone who is genuinely concerned with falling birthrates should be supporting policies such as paid maternity leave, subsidized day care, flexible work schedules, affordable health care and so on that would make it feasible for more women who want babies to have them. As for the women who don't, we should be grateful in the knowledge that they are intelligent enough to make the choice that is best for them and then back off with the judgement.

Ze Germans Aren’t Coming

23 percent of German men say “zero” is the ideal family size.
11:44 AM, Aug 20, 2013 • By JONATHAN V. LAST

Last week, the New York Times ran a piece on the dire demographic problems facing Germany. The short version: Germans aren’t having enough kids, and as a result the economy is in trouble and there are all sorts of logistical problems—vacant buildings that need to be razed; houses that will never be sold, sewer systems which may not function properly because they’re too empty. If you want to read the long version, I write pretty extensively about Germany’s problems in What to Expect When No One’s Expecting. (Now available in hardcover, Kindle, and audiobook!)

...


I’m not selling anything myself. (Except a book—pick up your copy of What to Expect When No One’s Expecting today!) But I’d suggest that when it comes to demographics and falling fertility rates there are no easy answers. If you want to understand how truly deep Germany’s problems run, consider this:

In 2005, Europe did a Population Policy Acceptance Study  [  http://www.bosch-stiftung.de/content/language1/downloads/ppas_en.pdf ]

 which looked at a broad range of demographic indicators. One of these indicators was “ideal fertility”—that is, how many kids an individual thought was the ideal number.


Twenty-three percent of German men—that’s not a typo, 23 percent—said that “zero” was the ideal family size. There probably aren’t public policy solutions to a cultural worldview like that.

Germany Fights Population Drop

SONNEBERG, Germany — At first glance, this town in central Germany, with rows of large houses built when it was a thriving center of toy manufacturing, looks tidy and prosperous. But Heiko Voigt, the deputy mayor here, can point out dozens of vacant homes that he doubts will ever be sold.

The reality is that the German population is shrinking and towns like this one are working hard to hide the emptiness. Mr. Voigt has already supervised the demolition of 60 houses and 12 apartment blocs, strategically injecting grassy patches into once-dense complexes.

There is perhaps nowhere better than the German countryside to see the dawning impact of Europe’s plunge in fertility rates over the decades, a problem that has frightening implications for the economy and the psyche of the Continent. In some areas, there are now abundant overgrown yards, boarded-up windows and concerns about sewage systems too empty to work properly. The work force is rapidly graying, and assembly lines are being redesigned to minimize bending and lifting.

In its most recent census, Germany discovered it had lost 1.5 million inhabitants. By 2060, experts say, the country could shrink by an additional 19 percent, to about 66 million.

Demographers say a similar future awaits other European countries, and the issue grows more pressing every day as Europe’s seemingly endless economic troubles accelerate the decline. But bogged down with failed banks and dwindling budgets, few are in any position to do anything about it
...
Melanie Vogel, 39, of Bonn, found that trying to blend work and motherhood was so lonely, dispiriting and expensive that she decided to have one child. None of her friends worked full time, her mother-in-law made clear she disapproved, and so did clients in the job fair company she runs with her husband.

“Before my son was born, I was Melanie, a working businesswoman,” Mrs. Vogel said. “But after my son was born, to a lot of people, I was just a mother.”

Many working mothers find themselves quickly pushed into poorly paid “mini” jobs — perhaps 17 hours a week for about $600 a month. More than four million working women in Germany, about a quarter of the female work force, hold such jobs.

...
Another way to adjust to the population decline is to get older workers to postpone retirement.  The German government is raising the retirement age incrementally to 67 from 65, and companies have moved fast to adapt
...

Greece's birthrate falls as austerity measures hit healthcare

Hospitals report 10% reduction in births in past four years as ministers say families cannot afford to have children
Helena Smith in Athens
theguardian.com, Wednesday 18 September 2013 05.02 EDT

   
Greece has suffered a huge drop in its number of live births because of austerity and unemployment, according to a senior government official.

The decline of almost 15% in the past four years is unparalleled in Europe and highlights the savage impact costcutting measures are having on the nation at the heart of the eurozone's financial woes.

"The falling fertility rate is a natural consequence of harsh austerity and record levels of unemployment, especially among the young," said Christina Papanikolaou, general secretary at the health ministry. "It is the mirror image of the 25% drop in our GDP since the start of the crisis," she said.

If further evidence was ever needed of the human cost of austerity, it is the effect budget-reducing policies are clearly having on childbirth in Greece. Figures released by the state-run Institute of Child Health show that the number of births dropped from 118,302 in 2008 to 100,980 in 2012.
...
Soaring joblessness – at nearly 28%, Greece has the highest unemployment rate in the eurozone – has also meant that growing numbers are no longer covered by free healthcare. The migration of thousands of private insurance holders to state-sponsored schemes has added to the strain.

"This is by far our biggest problem, the long-term unemployed no longer having access to health services because they are uninsured," said Papanikolaou, a physician herself. "We have had to make cuts in a very short period of time and some have been unfair. Pregnant women, for instance, no longer receive any kind of help or benefits."
...
"There is a growing population of undeclared children in Greece," said one social worker, who spoke only on condition of anonymity. "We have had cases of mothers fleeing hospitals with babes in arms in the middle of the night."

Mapping Unwed Motherhood

By CATHERINE RAMPELL
The New York Times
May 2, 2013

The share of births to unmarried mothers is up, according to a new report from the Census Bureau.

In 2011, of the women who reported having had a birth in the previous 12 months, 35.7 percent were unmarried. That number has been tracked in the American Community Survey since 2005, when 30.6 percent of recent births were to unmarried women.

“Nonmarital fertility has been climbing steadily since the 1940s and has risen even more markedly in recent years,” Rose Kreider, a family demographer with the Census Bureau and one of the report’s authors, said in a news release accompanying the report.

Rates of out-of-wedlock births vary tremendously by demographics like age and education. Among women 20 to 24 years old, for example, 62 percent of those who gave birth in the previous 12 months were unmarried. Among those 35 to 39, the share was 17 percent. The rate of births out of marriage were also lower for women with higher income and more education.

Sounds about right. A lot of couples remain unmarried (and now states often recognise cohabiting couples as though they were married) these days, and the rise in single parenthood is well documented.

Money Woes May Be to Blame for Waning US Birth Rate
By Megan Gannon, News Editor   |   September 26, 2013 07:12am ET

Even though the vast majority of Americans say they have, want or wish they had kids, the reality is that fewer children are being born in the United States. A new Gallup survey suggests financial pressures are one reason for the trend.

Americans' views about having kids have hardly changed since 1990: More than nine in 10 adults today say they have kids, are planning to have kids or wish they had kids, a new Gallup survey found. Just 5 percent say they don't want children; 4 percent said the same in 1990.

Despite these barely-changed attitudes, the U.S. birth rate has dropped 11 percent since 1990. In 2011, the fertility rate in the United States fell to an all-time low, at 63.2 births per 1,000 women between ages 15 and 44, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 1990, the fertility rate was 70.9 births per 1,000 women. [10 Scientific Tips For Raising Happy Kids]

The new poll results were collected between Aug. 22 and 31, from a nationally representative sample of 5,100 American adults. When asked, "What do you think are the main reasons why couples do not have more children?" most survey respondents mentioned financial reasons.

Sixty-five percent cited not having enough money or the cost of raising a child, and another 11 percent listed the state of the economy and lack of job opportunities in the United States. Six percent said they thought not having kids, or not having more kids, was likely due to a personal choice, or a lack of desire for children.
...
Of the 14 percent of Americans over age 45 who are childless, half said they would have at least one child if they had to do it all over again.

CDC: U.S. Fertility Rate Hits Record Low for 2nd Straight Year;
40.7% of Babies Born to Unmarried Women
January 8, 2014 - 2:35 PM

(CNSNews.com) - The fertility rate of women in the United States fell to a record low for the second year in a row in 2012, according to data released last week by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [  http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr62/nvsr62_09.pdf ] . Also for the second year in a row, 40.7 percent of the babies born in the United States were born to unmarried mothers.
The fertility rate is the number of births per 1,000 women aged 15-44. In 2012--according to the Dec. 30, 2013 CDC report “Births: Final Data for 2012"--the U.S. fertility rate was 63.0.    [ http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr62/nvsr62_09.pdf ]
   That was down from 63.2 in 2011, the previous all-time low. “The 2012 general fertility rate (GFR) for the U.S. was 63.0 births per 1,000 women aged 15–44, down slightly (less than 1%) from the record low rate reported for the nation in 2011 (63.2),” said the CDC report.

The U.S. fertility rate has dropped from year-to-year for each of the last five years.

In 2007, it was 69.3. In 2008, it was 68.1. In 2009, it was 66.2. In 2010, it was 64.1.

In 2011, it was 63.2. And, in 2012, it was 63.0.

Since 1960, the fertility rate in the United States has declined 46.6 percent. In that year, 118 babies were born per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44. Of the 3,952,841 babies who were born in the United States in 2012, said the CDC report, 1,609,619—or 40.7 percent--were born to unmarried mothers. 2012 thus marked the fifth straight year that 40 percent or more of the babies born in the United States were born to unmarried women.

Everything you need to know about Japan's population crisis
Japan's birthrate is plummeting. Why have so many young Japanese given up on getting married?
By Sarah Eberspacher | January 11, 2014   

Why is Japan in trouble?

The Japanese now have one of the lowest fertility rates in the world, and at the same time, one of the highest longevity rates. As a result, the population is dropping rapidly, and becoming increasingly weighted toward older people. After peaking seven years ago, at 128 million, Japan's population has been falling — and is on a path to decline by about a million people a year.

By 2060, the government estimates, there will be just 87 million people in Japan; nearly half of them will be over 65. Without a dramatic change in either the birthrate or its restrictive immigration policies, Japan simply won't have enough workers to support its retirees, and will enter a demographic death spiral. Yet the babies aren't coming.

Why not?

The British newspaper The Observer recently caused an international stir by reporting that Japanese youth have lost interest in sex. The sensationalist conclusion was mostly based on a single statistic: a survey that found that 45 percent of women and 25 percent of men ages 16 to 24 said they were not looking to have sex. The article also cited the phrase sekkusu shinai shokogun, or "celibacy syndrome," as if it were a major trend.

In reality, more Japanese singles are having sex than in past decades. In 1990, 65 percent of unmarried women and 45 percent of unmarried men had never had sex; today, the figures are 50 percent and 40 percent, respectively. "Of course Japanese have sex," Asian studies professor Jeff Kingston told Bloomberg.com. "If the number of love hotels is any barometer, it seems like many are getting plenty of it."
...
Why aren't they getting married?

There are both cultural and economic barriers. In Japanese tradition, marriage was more about duty than romantic love. Arranged marriages were the norm well into the 1970s, and even into the 1990s most marriages were facilitated by "go-betweens," often the grooms' bosses.

Left to their own devices, Japanese men aren't sure how to find wives — and many are shying away from the hunt, because they simply can't afford it.

Wages have stagnated since the 1990s, while housing prices have shot up. A young Japanese man has good reason to believe that his standard of living would drop immensely if he had to house and support a wife and children — especially considering that his wife likely wouldn't be working.

Why American men are avoiding marriage.

And here an anti-feminist blogger and writer explains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzNN42bJUkw

Naturally I disagree with the notion that men should avoid marriage -- and therefore bringing children into the world.  However, this woman hits the nail on the head in regards to why so many males feel that marriage and family are both to be avoided. 

Maybe polygamy is ultimately the answer so the men who are not too timid to give it a shot can be the ones supplying the genes for the next generation.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

More young women choosing dogs over motherhood
By Antonio Antenucci and David K. Li
April 10, 2014

America’s next generation of youngsters should be called “Generation Rex.”

If you’re wondering why playgrounds around the city are so quiet and dog runs are packed, a new report has an answer: More and more US women are forgoing motherhood and getting their maternal kicks by owning handbag-size canines.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young US women, reports the business-news site Quartz.

Dog-crazy New York ladies told The Post that they aren’t surprised by the findings — and that they happily gave up diaper changes, temper tantrums and college funds for the easy affection of their doggy “child.”


“I’d rather have a dog over a kid,” declared Sara Foster, 30, a Chelsea equities trader who says her French bulldog, Maddie, brings her more joy than a child.
...
The federal data behind the report show that over the past seven years, the number of live births per 1,000 women between ages 15 and 29 in America has plunged 9 percent.

At the same time, research by the American Pet Products Association shows the number of small dogs — under 25 pounds — in the United States has skyrocketed, from 34. 1 million in 2008 to 40.8 million in 2012.
...

Under a million abortions is a NEW LOW ... Say a prayer

CDC: 18% of all pregnancies end in abortion; 730,322 is a new 'low'
 By Paul Bedard  | November 28, 2014 | 10:53 am

Exactly 18 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion, for a total of 730,322, with most to unmarried women, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But that is good news, the agency added, because it was an "historic low."

The latest figures are from 2011 and show a downward overall trend in abortions since 2002, especially among younger women. But the numbers are up among women 25 and older, with a big jump among women over 40, said CDC.
...
Overall, however, abortion rates were at their lowest. "Large decreases in the total number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions from 2010 to 2011, in combination with decreases that occurred during 2008-2010, resulted in historic lows for all three measures of abortion," said the CDC.

Italy is a dying country as babies no longer replace people who die, says health minister

By  Nick Squires, Rome
7:25PM GMT 13 Feb 2015

The country's birth rate falls to its lowest level - 8.4 per 1,000 people - since the foundation of the modern state in 1861
...
Italy’s birth rate has fallen to its lowest level since the foundation of the modern state in 1861, prompting fresh alarm in a society that has been steadily ageing for decades.
./..
Beatrice Lorenzin, the minister of health, said: “We are at the threshold where people who die are not being replaced by newborns. That means we are a dying country.

"This situation has enormous implications for every sector: the economy, society, health, pensions, just to give a few examples."
...
The birth rate decline was blamed on years of economic recession and high unemployment. The birth rate is lowest in the Mezzogiorno, or south of Italy, where the recession has hit hardest. Sardinia, for example, had a birth rate of 7.1 per cent.

The average age at which Italian women have their first child has been creeping up for years and is now at 31 years and six months

the facts are in the TFT / TFR for the west, we are disappearing and being replaced ... the only reason there are population increases are due to the fact the adults are not dying and "global migration" . Life finds a way, so unprepared young girls have babies who have avoided abortions . The only reason for the USA's 2.0 tft is the continual importation of young fertile women ... as Jebby Bush would say ...

Where does the 2.1 come from? Wouldn't replacement rate fertility be 2.0?

Replacement rate fertility requires each woman to replace herself. According to the CIA World Factbook, there are 107 boys born for every 100 girls. Thus each 100 women need to bear 207 children, on average, in order to produce the 100 girls needed to replace them. Dividing 207 children by 100 women equals 2.07 children per woman, which convention rounds up to 2.1

Will Today’s ‘Stupid’ Become Tomorrow’s ‘Smart’?
...
Now that Obama’s education team is in place, here is my billion-dollar proposal: tell smart people to start making babies. Seriously. Set up some mood music in grad school dorms, dim the lighting in the labs, and arrange for some conjugal visits at the space station. Let’s do everything we can to encourage reading and breeding amongst the nation’s intellectual elite.

Why? Consider this: over the past few decades, we have seen significant declines in the birth rates across the country. As more and more young people started going to college, and women became more prevalent in the workplace, births in the U.S. have naturally declined. With that, the composition of mothers has also changed:


“Fertility tends to decline as education level increases. Women may put off marriage and children to further their education, then to get established in the labor force. Women age 40 to 44 with no high school education had about 2.5 children in 2004, compared with 1.6 children among women with a graduate or professional degree.” – Mary Kent, Population Reference Bureau

So keeping this in mind, let’s look at the following charts from the National Center for Health Statistics, which show the birth rates by state in 2002.

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

If the USA is below TFR of 2.1 (the required replacement rate level for the native born population ) then why encourage population control, PP, or abortion  ? Why should the govt. be funding Planned Parenthood?
Are we the Nazi Eugenics Country that hates White/Black native born Americans and wishes to replace them with anyone but them  ?

Congresswoman Introduces 'Defund Planned Parenthood Act'
4:39 PM, Jul 22, 2015 • By JOHN MCCORMACK

Representative Diane Black, a Republican from Tennessee, has introduced a bill to deny all federal funding to Planned Parenthood, an organization that performs hundreds of thousands of abortions each year. An undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress has revealed that some Planned Parenthood affiliates harvest and sell the organs of aborted babies.

In a speech delivered Tuesday night, Black said that Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding each year, "has blood on its hands."

Mister Speaker, Planned Parenthood has blood on its hands. Over the last week, we’ve seen multiple videos showing its employees brazenly discussing the harvesting of aborted babies’ tissue and organs. But the truth is, Planned Parenthood’s culture of depravity runs much deeper than a couple of videos.

Fact Sheet: The Decline in U.S. Fertility
by Mark Mather

(July 2012) In the United States and other developed countries, fertility tends to drop during periods of economic decline. U.S. fertility rates fell to low levels during the Great Depression (1930s), around the time of the 1970s "oil shock," and since the onset of the recent recession in 2007 (see Figure 1). The U.S. total fertility rate (TFR) stood at 2.0 births per woman in 2009, but preliminary data from the National Center for Health Statistics show that the TFR dropped to 1.9 in 2010—well below the replacement level of 2.1.1 A similar decline—or leveling off—of fertility rates has been reported in Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and several other European countries.

Declining birth rate in Developed Countries: A radical policy re-think is required
G. Nargund

There is a concern about declining birth rates in both the developing and developed world (www.rand.org). ...
, Developed countries tend to have a lower fertility rate due to lifestyle choices associated with economic affluence where mortality rates are low, birth control is easily accessible and children often can become an economic drain caused by housing, education cost and other cost involved in bringing up children. Higher education and professional careers often mean that women have children late in life. This can result in a demographic economic paradox.

The Total Fertility Rate (TFR) of a population is the average number of children that would be born to a woman over her lifetime if she were to experience the exact current age specific fertility rates through her life time and she were to survive from birth through the end of her reproductive life. It is obtained by summing the single year age specific rates for a given time point. Perhaps more relevant to the current debate is the replacement fertility rate which is the total fertility rate in which women would have only enough children to replace themselves and their partners. Effectively it is the total fertility rate at which newborn girls would have an average of exactly 1 daughter over their lifetimes. By definition replacement is only considered to have occurred when the offspring reach 15 years of age. The replacement fertility rate is roughly 2.1 live births per woman for most industrialised countries. Due to increased mortality rates, the approximate average for developing regions of the world is 2.3. At this rate, population growth through reproduction will be approximately 0, but still be affected by male-female ratios and mortality rates.

The fertility of the population of the United States is below replacement among those native born, and above replacement among immigrant families and the socially deprived (Singh et al., 2001). However the fertility rates of immigrants to the US have been found to decrease sharply in the second generation as a result of improving education and income. It will take several generations for a real change in total fertility rates to be reflected in birth rates because the age distribution must reach equilibrium. For example, a population that has recently dropped below replacement fertility rate continues to grow because the recent high fertility produced large number of young couples who would now be in their child bearing years. The phenomenon carries forward for several generations and is called population momentum or population lag effect. The time lag effect is of great importance to human population growth rates. The state policy institutes and international population studies are closely monitoring how reproductive patterns cause immigrant generations globally.

Although recent data show that birth rates in the UK have increased (Office of National Statistics, 2009), this is predominantly due to immigration so there are still serious concerns about long term replacement. There are two potential means of addressing the problem of providing a young productive workforce able to generate income to provide the social care for the old and infirm. The first is to find ways of increasing the birth rate; this is essentially a long term solution but one which should provide more steady and predictable results. The second is to encourage immigration of a predominantly young and skilled workforce; this may provide an instant answer to the problem but is likely to be short-term unless the immigrants decide to stay in large numbers. In the long term it is doubtful whether reliance should be placed on immigration to solve an intrinsic societal problem in developed nations, namely a falling birth rate.

The declining birth rate is not unique to Britain and Western European countries. Countries like Japan have a similar concern
.

There are several factors such as lifestyle factors, an increase in sexually transmitted diseases, rise in obesity and environmental factors involved in urbanisation and urban lifestyle that are affecting fertility and have led to rise in male and female subfertility. In addition there are socio-economic factors that have led to women and couples delaying having children. Lack of affordable housing, flexible and part-time career posts for women and affordable and publicly funded (free) child care have contributed to the current low fertility/birth rates. Couples/women are delaying starting a family which has led to a true decline in their fertility levels due to ovarian ageing and related reasons leading to reduced chance of conception.

It is necessary for governments to provide adequate publicly funded reproductive health and social care in order to achieve required birth rates and have a younger population to contribute to nation’s and global progress. It can be argued that women now contribute more to the total workforce and social welfare agenda (tax and national insurance) than ever before and deserve to get reproductive benefits from the public purse.

In parallel, it is also necessary to have a national and an international initiative for the prevention of infertility and protection of fertility. The projects will need to be focussed at the specific needs of the local population. It is necessary for governments to work in close partnership with the voluntary sector to achieve the maximum effect.

The most important project will have to address raising awareness at an individual, family, community and social level as well as at primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare level regarding factors affecting male and female fertility. A regular and open education programme for women and men would empower them with knowledge required to protect their fertility. Furthermore, recent surveys suggest that prevention of reproductive and sexual health problems would be best achieved through education in secondary schools. It is important to plan a practical and a meaningful initial and follow-up programme for reproductive and sexual health education in secondary schools, with an aim to prevent future infertility. In developing countries it would be necessary to provide this education to women and men at grass roots level in their homes and communities. This is aimed at increasing natural conception rates.

Fertility treatment in the UK as in other European countries is currently funded and managed by the Department of Health within the government. Since healthcare has several priorities such as cancer, care of elderly and acute medicine, fertility care is not high on the agenda. This has led to inadequate funding and concerns about inequity. The need for private assisted conception due to lack of public funding may eventually lead to only the rich benefiting from fertility treatment. This will lead to long term social inequality. The state should fund the mild IVF treatments which are safer, less costly and have comparable success rates to the standard downregulation protocols (Heijnen et al., 2007; Nargund and Frydman, 2007; Verberg et al., 2009; Nargund 2009). This will improve access to fertility treatment for the socially deprived. The European Human Rights Act (October 2001) recognises “right to family life” as a basic human right. It is also widely accepted that “human reproduction” is an important and fundamental wheel of life with spokes spread across societal, economic, population, immigration, employment, education, health, wealth and family life (Figure 1). It involves sustaining the current family structure for the creation of future generations.

the effect of abortion rates on TFR (total fertility rates) , effect well known back in 1985:

Induced abortion and fertility.

Frejka T.

Abstract

Even in countries with high rates of legal induced abortion, contraceptive use and marital patterns nearly always have a greater impact on fertility levels than does abortion.

As a rule, extremely high rates of abortion--three or more abortions per woman of childbearing age during the reproductive years--are required for the fertility-inhibiting effect of abortion to rival that of contraceptive use.

Nevertheless, the absolute effect of abortion on fertility (defined as the amount by which the current total fertility rate, or TFR, would increase if no abortions were performed) is often substantial.

In most of the countries examined, the TFR would have been from about 20 percent to nearly 90 percent higher than it actually was (other things being equal) had no induced abortions been performed.

Among developed countries, the Soviet Union, Japan, Eastern European countries, Israel and the United States have the highest total legal abortion rates, ranging from one abortion to more than five abortions per woman of childbearing age during the reproductive years.

Among the developing countries for which reliable data are available, South Korea, China, Cuba and Singapore have rates of about 1-2 abortions per woman of fertile age. However, a number of other countries in Latin America and Asia, for which the data are deficient, probably have equally high rates.

Could an abortion increase the risk of problems in a subsequent pregnancy?

Answers from Roger W. Harms, M.D.



Generally, abortion isn't thought to cause fertility issues or complications in subsequent pregnancies. However, some research suggests a possible link between abortion and an increased risk of:
•Vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy
•Preterm birth
•Low birth weight
•Placenta problems, such as retained placenta

During a medical abortion, a woman takes medication in early pregnancy to abort the fetus. In a surgical abortion, the fetus is removed from the uterus — typically with a vacuum device, a syringe or a spoon–shaped instrument with a sharp edge (curet) — as a surgical procedure. Rarely, a surgical abortion can damage the cervix or uterus. In such cases, surgery might be needed to correct the damage before a woman can conceive again. Also, rarely the cervix can be weakened, leading to the potential for the cervix to open prematurely (incompetent cervix) in a subsequent pregnancy. This is more likely to affect women who have had multiple surgical abortions.

If you've had an abortion and are concerned about the possible impact on a future pregnancy, consult your health care provider. He or she can help you understand the potential risks, as well as what you can do to help ensure a healthy pregnancy

Abortion and Infertility

Unlike the experience of the 'baby boom' generation following World War II (1946 - 1964) when infertility was not a problem for most people, many couples today have to deal with the frustration and heartache of infertility. Infertility is defined as the inability to produce a pregnancy after 12 months of trying.

The growing rates of infertility and secondary infertility (infertility after a woman has had one child) can be attributed to many things, but many medical experts and researchers are reluctant to name surgical abortion as a possible causal factor.

 Because abortion is such a controversial issue, any expert who speaks up and links abortion with negative side-effects is regarded as a secret "pro-lifer" and is in danger of committing professional "suicide." Such a scientist or researcher risks being shunned by colleagues and ridiculed in the media and professional journals.

 Many advocates of abortion deny that there is a link between abortion and future infertility, except when the abortion is illegal. There is usually a qualifer, however, that says  legal  abortion should not affect future fertility "where there are no complications."

Dr Tiller - world-renowned abortionist
Abortionist Dr George Tiller's website cites the following complications of abortion that can lead to a woman being unable to have children at a later date of her choosing. With first and second trimester abortions:   

 "Another case series with West African women, involved eleven with secondary infertility lasting 2-15 years' duration. All these women had a previous pregnancy termination performed between 10 and 26 weeks gestation. Diagnosis of retained fetal bone was made with transvaginal ultrasound in all cases. Hysteroscopy was then performed to remove the bone fragments, and eight out of the eleven women subsequently conceived spontaneously." 3

Retention of foetal tissue
In a first trimester abortion the doctor sometimes performs what is known as an "incomplete abortion" accidently leaving some tissue in the uterus. When foetal tissue is left behind in the womb it can rot and cause a severe infection that can cause permanent damage to the female reproductive organs. This can result in sterility or miscarriage of future pregnancies.
 

Infections
While many abortion advocates deny future infertility can be due to an abortion, they do mention that it could have resulted from a sexually transmitted infection/disease that was present at the time of the abortion. It is indeed likely that following an abortion the main risk to fertility is the development of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), which is an inflammation uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Any use of instruments on the cervix, such as during a D&C, can lead to a greater spread of these organisms and, therefore, the risk of PID.

A Scandinavian study found that women with previous or existing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease had a decrease in fertility following an abortion. Acta/Obstetrics and Gyn. Scandinavia 1979; 58:539-42 4
 

Multiple abortions

In some cases, multiple dilations and curettages (D&C) may cause some scarring at the top of the cervix or inside the uterus. Any procedure that dilates the cervix, which is a necessary step during most abortions, can weaken it. It can affect the ability of an embryo to implant into the uterus or the ability of your cervix to support a pregnancy.

Women who have had more than one abortion and get pregnant again later on, may find that they have what's known as an incompetent cervix ? a cervix that starts dilating prematurely.

Demographic effects of the introduction of steroid contraception in developed countries
Oxford Journals
Medicine & Health 
Human Reproduction Update
Volume 12,  Issue 5
Pp.  603-616.

Revision received April 18, 2006

Abstract
...

Several studies on UK are available. Cartwright (1979) was among the first to suggest a causal effect: ‘The contraceptive methods increasingly being used—the pill, the IUD and sterilization [...have] probably played a most significant part in the decline in the birth rate and in the average family size of British couples. At the same time, there has also been some reduction in the number of children that parents want’ (p. 135).

This conclusion is also supported by Hobcraft (1996), using data assembled by Cartwright (1987) on unwanted pregnancies: the reduction in the number of these pregnancies could account for as much as 54% of the decline in fertility between 1967 (TFR = 2.61) and 1975 (TFR = 1.78).

Hobcraft estimated that ‘improved contraceptive efficacy [mainly the pill] was alone responsible for a reduction in total fertility of perhaps 0.25’ (p. 508), being 30% of the total fertility decline. Abortion may have been responsible for 15%, with the remaining decline being due to the reduction of wanted fertility.

Murphy (1993) also argued that the increased use of the contraceptive pill has played a major role in the decline of fertility, against the usual views of economists: ‘It must be concluded that the effect of contraceptive use, especially switching to the pill, or possibly induced abortion, was overwhelmingly responsible for the reduction in fertility during this period [1967–1983]’ (p. 224). ‘Thus the oral contraceptive pill was the principal determinant of fertility in Britain during this period. [...] Later, however, other efficient methods, especially sterilization, more than compensated for reductions in pill use’ (p. 229).

Rockefeller-Funded Anti-Fertility Vaccine Coordinated by WHO
by Jurriaan Maessen
...

In 1976, the WHO Expanded Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction published a report, stating:

“In 1972 the Organization (…) expanded its programme of research in human reproduction to provide an international focus for an intensified effort to improve existing methods of fertility regulation, to develop new methods and to assist national authorities in devising the best ways of providing them on a continuing basis. The programme is closely integrated with other WHO research on the delivery of family planning care by health services, which in turn feeds into WHO’s technical assistance programme to governments at the service level.”

Although the term “Anti-Fertility Vaccine”, coined by the Rockefeller Foundation, was replaced by the more bureaucratic sounding “Fertility Regulating Vaccine (FRV), the programme was obviously the same. Besides, The time line shows conclusively that the WHO, UN Population Fund and World Bank continued on a path outlined by the Rockefellers in the late 1960s. By extensions, it proves that all these organization are perfectly interlocked, best captured under the header “Scientific Dictatorship”. The relationship between the WHO and the Rockefeller Foundation is intense. While researching the effectiveness of “gossypol” as an “antifertility agent”, the bulletin states:

The Rockefeller Foundation has supported limited clinical trials in China and smallscale clinical studies in Brazil and Austria. The dose administered in the current Chinese trial has been reduced from 20 mg to 10-15 mg/day during the loading phase in order to see if severe oligospermia rather than consistent azoospermia would be adequate for an acceptable, non-toxic and reversible effect. Meanwhile, both the WHO human reproduction programme and the Rockefeller Foundation are supporting animal studies to better define the mechanism of action of gossypol.”
...
The picture emerging from these facts is clear. The WHO, as a global coordinating body, has since the early 70s continued the development of the Rockefeller-funded “anti-fertility vaccine”. What also is becoming clear, is that extensive research has been done to the delivery systems in which these anti-fertility components can be buried, such as regular anti-viral vaccines. It’s a mass-scale anti-fertilization programme with the aim of reducing the world’s population: a dream long cherished by the global elite.

The Declining Fertility of Immigrants and Natives

Conclusion

The idea that immigration can prevent the aging of society and "rebuild the demographic pyramid" because they are "more fertile" has an intrinsic appeal. It is tempting partly because it seems like a quick fix to problems like funding Social Security and Medicare and avoiding politically painful choices like cutting benefits, raising taxes, or extending the retirement age. Prior research shows that the immigration-will-fix-aging argument is largely a mirage. As this analysis shows, immigrants' somewhat higher fertility has only a small impact on the overall fertility rate no matter how fertility is measured. In fact, even if the number of immigrant women (15 to 50) doubled, along with the number of births to this population, it would only raise the nation's overall birth rate for women 15 to 50 by 3 percent.

Further, the fertility of immigrants is declining. This decline in immigrant fertility means that the small impact immigration has on the overall fertility rate in the United States, and the resulting impact on the aging of the America's population, is becoming even smaller. Fertility is dropping around the world, including from all of the primary immigrant-sending regions. Thus it should come as no surprise that immigrants in the United States are also having fewer children. One can favor reduced or increased immigration for any number of reasons, but America will simply have to look for solutions other than immigration to deal with the challenges associated with an aging society.

after the many years of MSM articles proclaiming birth control pills are "good" for women with no impact on long term fertility  .... out comes some truth:

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/pill-temporarily-diminish-fertility-study-article-1.1850643
Taking birth control pills could temporarily diminish fertility: study

Danish researchers said oral contraceptives ‘may mask a severely diminished ovarian reserve.’ They also found that women on the Pill also had smaller ovaries than those who did not take birth control pills.

AFP RELAXNEWS /
 
Tuesday, July 1, 2014, 12:14 PM
 
Growing concern over fertility and the controversy of preserving it has inspired a Danish research team to assess what, exactly, drains a woman's ovarian reserves, and they concluded that the oral contraceptive pill could be a major culprit, at least temporarily.

Ovarian reserve is a measure of the ovary's capacity to produce fertile oocytes (egg cells). Modern science assesses it via two measures: levels of anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) in the blood and the number of early (antral) follicles in the ovary.
...
Researchers tested 833 women between the ages of 19 and 46 and found the AFC measurements 16 percent lower in pill users and AMH levels down 19 percent.

An unexpected additional finding was that pill users' ovaries were between 29 and 52 percent smaller than those of non-pill users, particularly in the youngest of the subjects, between the ages of 19 and 29.9.
...

additional research is necessary to better understand the recovery phase after women stop taking the Pill.

Birth Control Pills May Make Women's Eggs 'Look Old'

‘The Pill’ Shrinks Ovaries, Cuts Egg Numbers
Thu, 08/21/2014 - 2:44pm
by  Cynthia Fox

The birth control pill significantly affects ovarian reserve— or the number of immature eggs in a woman’s ovaries— which can be a predictor of future fertility.

This is according to a team in Denmark, who reported to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology annual meeting last month that two markers for the ovarian reserve are markedly suppressed after prolonged birth control pill use: the levels of anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) in the blood, and the number of early (antral) follicles (AFC) in the ovary.  Ovaries are also markedly shrunken after prolonged pill use.

Rise of the flexi-sexual female: Women are 'more likely to be bisexual than men' - and change their minds about their sexuality
Females were also more likely to choose the label 'mostly heterosexual'
But men tended to describe themselves as 100% hetero or homosexual
Study comes as more female celebrities openly talk about being bisexual
By Fiona Macrae Science Editor For The Daily Mail
Published: 23:01 EST, 24 August 2015  | Updated: 01:32 EST, 25 August 2015

Women are more likely to be bisexual than men, a study has found.

The poll of more than 9,000 young adults found that females were also more likely to choose the label ‘mostly heterosexual’.

...

Researcher Elizabeth McClintock, of the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, said: ‘This indicates that women’s sexuality may be more flexible and adaptive than men’s.’

Her study comes as growing numbers of female celebrities openly talk about being bisexual.

...

The women were more likely than the men to call themselves bisexual.

They were also three times more likely to change their minds about their sexuality in their 20s, the American Sociological Association’s annual conference heard.

Dr McClintock said that ‘male eroticization’ of the topic allows women to experiment by, for instance, kissing other females at parties, without being stigmatised.

Denmark Increases Pressure On Young Couples To Have Children To Avert Demographic Collapse
by Oliver Lane 6 Oct 2015 

The city of Copenhagen has launched a campaign to persuade young couples to have children as the nation faces total demographic collapse.

The drive is part of the national MaybeBaby initiative, which aims to teach young people and children about the dangers of engaging in activity which affects fertility and of having children too late. Inhabitants of the Danish capital now don’t have their first child, on average, until they reach 31 – too mature for women to make the most of their fertility, a factor that prevents many couples from having the number of children they may want.

Compounding this, a fifth of all Danish couples choose to remain childless. Conesquently, the natural population of Danes is in free-fall, and the government is having to welcome mass migration to make up numbers of taxpayers, even though this comes with social costs of its own.

Hillary VP Tim Kaine background needs investigation!


http://www.infowars.com/hillarys-vp-whites-must-become-a-minority-to-atone-for-racism/
Hillary’s VP: Whites Must Become a “Minority” to Atone For Racism
'The burden is on Caucasians'
Paul Joseph Watson -  August 16, 2016

... Hillary’s running mate Tim Kaine told a black audience in New Orleans that white people must become a “minority” in order to properly atone for racism and oppression suffered by blacks.

... “I think the burden is on those of us who are in the majority — Caucasians. We have to put ourselves in a place where we are the minority.”

The “burden” that Kaine mentions obviously means taking on “white guilt,” despite the fact that – even at the height of slavery – only 1.4% of whites in America owned slaves. White people were also victims of far more brutal and longer lasting oppression under the Barbary slave trade.

Kaine’s desire to see whites become a minority in America is set to be realized in around 30 years because white people are the only group with a higher death rate than birth rate.

An Augusta, Ga., group,  The National Policy Institute, has meshed the figures on fertility rates with the continents and races on Planet Earth—to visualize what the world will look like in 2060. [Global White Population To Plummet,  download it here.]

In 1950, whites were 28 percent of world population and Africans 9 percent, a ratio of three-to-one.

In 2060, the ratio will remain the same. But the colors will be reversed. People of African ancestry will be 25 percent of the world`s population. People of European descent will have fallen to 9.8 percent.

More arresting is that the white population is shrinking not only in relative but in absolute terms. Two hundred million white people, one in every six on earth—a number equal to the entire population of France, Britain, Holland and Germany—will vanish by 2060.

So the question might be ... was lead used in gasoline for cars or to depopulate America and the Western world ?

I want lead paint  ...

The whole lead paint deal was a canard anyway ... (it was bad for painters ) but most high lead blood levels were due to tons of lead in gasoline exhaust ... even today tons of lead are in the grounds of cities ... from 50 years of  poisoning the population with lead in gasoline ...

kids were not getting lead in their blood from paint chips ...

anyways ..... 


http://web.mit.edu/ckolstad/www/Newell.pdf
The U.S. Experience with the Phasedown
of Lead in Gasoline

History of the U.S. Lead Phasedown
Refiners in the United States started adding lead compounds to gasoline in the 1920s in
order to boost octane levels and improve engine performance by reducing engine ‘knock’ and
allowing higher engine compression.1
...
From the start of the phase-down in 1979 to the
completion of the marketable permit program in 1988, the regulations on the refineries accounted
for about 36 percent of the total gasoline lead reduction during that time, amounting to over a
half-million tons of lead
that would otherwise have been emitted (Holley and Anderson 1989).

https://www.epa.gov/aboutepa/lead-poisoning-historical-perspective
...
By the twentieth century, the U.S. had emerged as the world's leading producer and consumer of refined lead. According to the National Academy of Science's report on Lead in the Human Environment, the United States was by 1980 consuming about 1.3 million tons of lead per year. This quantity, which represents roughly 40 percent of the world's supply, translates into a usage rate of 5,221 grams of lead per American per annum: a rate of dependence on lead and lead-containing products nearly ten times greater than that of the ancient Romans! According to Jerome O. Nriagu, the world's leading authority on lead poisoning in antiquity, the comparable Roman rate of lead usage was approximately 550 grams per person per year.

Lead Linked to Male Infertility

First Clues That Even Low Lead Levels Harm Sperm

Feb. 6, 2003 -- Lead may be behind up to a fifth of unexplained male infertility cases, according to a new study. For the first time, researchers say they've found evidence that even low-level lead exposure from household contaminants may damage sperm and contribute to male infertility.

In light of these findings, researchers say fertility specialists should consider lead measurements when evaluating male partners from couples with unexplained infertility. They also recommend public health and safety officials reevaluate current environmental exposure limits for lead.
...

http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/lead/health.html

Health Problems Caused by Lead

It does not matter if a person breathes-in, swallows, or absorbs lead particles, the health effects are the same; however, the body absorbs higher levels of lead when it is breathed-in.

Within our bodies, lead is absorbed and stored in our bones, blood, and tissues. It does not stay there permanently, rather it is stored there as a source of continual internal exposure. 1 As we age, our bones demineralize and the internal exposures may increase as a result of larger releases of lead from the bone tissue. There is concern that lead may mobilize from the bone among women undergoing menopause.2 Post-menopausal women have been found to have higher blood lead levels than pre-menopausal women
...

Even low-level lead exposures in developing babies have been found to affect behavior and intelligence. Lead exposure can cause miscarriage, stillbirths, and infertility (in both men and women).

Polish women go on strike in protest against abortion ban
By Matthew Day,  Warsaw   
 3 October 2016 • 3:31pm   

Women across Poland went on strike on Monday in protest against a proposed law that would ban abortion even in cases of rape and incest.

Thousands of women dressed in black and refused to go to work, instead joining demonstrations across the country, in a day of protests named “Black Monday”.

The protests follow the introduction of a bill in the Polish parliament that forbids abortion in almost all circumstances, unless pregnancy threatens the life of the mother

Under the bill, tabled by a pro-life group, women who undergo an abortion could also face imprisonment.

Despite Poland still being a predominantly Catholic country and the bill winning the backing of the Church, and the informal support of the Poland’s socially conservative government, it has triggered widespread anger.

Of course when you are really poor .... family creation is low on the priorities ,,, and that is exactly what is happening ....

Also if women MUST work to afford a family ---- often you still have NO family or a divorce ...

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/apr/04/new-europe-poland-family-life

....
The Baniaks moved here six years ago. Back then the family consisted of Sylwia, now 34, a clerk at the local council, and Marcin, 33, an up-and-coming music critic. Two years on, Amelia was born, then Olga. Sylwia took time off work to look after the children, though she wants to return this winter to her job. Marcin became a presenter on Radio Kraków, before losing his job in 2008. He now works in the PR department of a Polish publishing house.

....

The Baniaks' flat is less than 50 sq m, and consists of four small rooms – a kitchen, a playroom for the kids, a bathroom and a living room. They don't technically have a bedroom. At night, they turn two sofas into temporary beds and, during my stay, they all sleep in the playroom. I'm surprised, but, says Marcin, this setup is pretty usual for families living in flats. Some of their neighbours get by with only 30 sq m. Polish dwellings are, on average, some of the smallest living spaces in Europe. Many families use sofa-beds and, like the Baniaks, their bathrooms won't always fit a basin.

"It's my dream to live in a house," says Marcin.
...

But Sylwia is wary of being photographed in the kitchen. She doesn't want to be considered a typical Polish housewife. She wants to go back to work. But, the Baniaks stress, this isn't a choice afforded to most Polish women: many employers find excuses not to keep new mothers on staff. Sylwia should be fine, because she works for the council, but private firms are more discriminatory.

....

One friend, a pharmacist, was fired after having a baby because her boss thought she would be too tired.

...

[ there are no teenage girls to get pregnant anymore : ]

teenage girls who used to loiter on the stairwells have disappeared. Several have had babies, says Marcin. "There's a lot of religious education in Poland, but no sex education."

...

Catholicism's a vexing issue for the Baniaks – and increasingly for Poland. During communism, the church was a rallying point for dissent. Priests' sermons were often implicitly critical of the regime. Around 95% of Poles still identify themselves as Catholic, but, says Marcin, that figure is shrinking, particularly among the young. They don't like the way the church is still involved in politics, he says, or how it runs a reactionary radio station, Radio Maryja. Or how it campaigns against condoms and IVF.

Well, With ubiquitous birth control and reduced fertility - what would you expect ?

Still - they counted 926,200 abortions in 2014  - that's a lot of baby parts for PP to sell

Abortion rate in U.S. drops to lowest level since Roe v. Wade decision in 1974, survey finds

... a comprehensive new survey finds the annual number of abortions in the U.S has dropped to well under 1 million, the lowest level since 1974.

The report, which counted 926,200 abortions in 2014, was released Tuesday by the Guttmacher Institute, a research group which supports abortion rights. It is the only entity which strives to count all abortions in the U.S.; the latest federal survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lacks data from California, Maryland and New Hampshire.

The total from 2014 represented a drop of 12.5 percent from Guttmacher’s previous survey, which tallied 1.06 million abortions in 2011. The decrease was spread nationwide; in only six states did abortions increase over the three-year span.

According to the report, the abortion rate was 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44, the lowest rate since abortion was legalized nationally in 1973 by the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision.

...
The highest abortion rates were in the District of Columbia, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Florida. The lowest rates were in Wyoming, Mississippi and South Dakota, states that had only one abortion clinic operating in 2014.

According to the report, the number of abortion clinics nationwide declined by 6 percent - from 839 in 2011 to 788 in 2014.

Fertility rate among over-40's has trebled since the early 80s
By SHAUN WOOLLER
14th July 2016, 2:26 am

THE number of women aged over 40 having babies has now overtaken those under 20 for the first time in almost 70 years, new figures reveal.

The fertility rate among older women has more than trebled since the early 80s and experts have put the rise down to the increasing numbers of women having careers and the spiralling cost of having kids.
...
There were 15.2 live births per 1,000 women aged 40 and over in 2015 compared to 14.5 for those aged under 20 - in 1981 the rate was just 4.9 for older mums.

The figures – from the Office of National Statistics – also reveal that more than a quarter of births in England and Wales in 2015 were to mothers born outside the UK.

They accounted for 27.5 per cent of all births – the highest level on record.
...
In 2015, women had an average of 1.82 children each, down from 1.83 in 2014.

[ Notice that the tft since the pill and abortion is MUCH LOWER .... pushing for LOWER fertility while pushing unlimited IM-MIGRATION  hmmm  ] 


The last time there were more over-40s having kids than younger women was 1947. The records began in 1938.

No Sex Marriage – _asturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame | Maureen McGrath | TEDxStanleyPark
TEDx Talks
Published on Jul 6, 2016
Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today?

Maureen McGrath - nursetalk@hotmail.com - hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on News Talk 980 CKNW. She is a Registered Nurse, Sex Educator and author of “Sex & Health".

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
