Lately the media has been trumpeting the dismal fertility rate in America and the world. Many nations have fallen below the rate of birth to sustain the native population and America is dangerously close to that predicament and some have literally reached the point of no return from which it is all but impossible to return the fertility rate to sustainable levels.
In many nations, America included, due to liberal immigration laws, some immigrant populations, whose fertility rate is well above replenishment levels, will become the dominant races in the decades to come and the native race will become less and less until it becomes a minority.
Nobody knows how many illegal Hispanics are actually in the US and it looks as if the president and congress are determined to give them legal status which will immediately tip the scales and continue to do so at an exponential rate as the fertility rate of Hispanics is well above the replenishment level.
Muslims, who don't practice abortion and forbid homosexuality are becoming a significant part of the population in most western nations, to the point that several of the countries in Europe will have a Muslim majority in a relatively few decades, which will bring about unprecedented political and cultural changes whose ramifications can only be guessed at.
In America, abortion has eliminated the combined population of several states and shows no sign of letting up. It seems that one of the Obama administration's main objectives is to provide legal abortion to every female of every age at any stage of the pregnancy and with Kathleen "Ice Queen" Sibelius leading the way there's no telling how far it will go.
I sometimes wonder if people like Obama and Sibelius think that the souls of the babies they help to be aborted are destroyed along with the fetus. I believe they are somewhere on the other side of the curtain, in God's tender care and will stand in the judgment as witnesses to the evil of abortion and the people who enable and encourage it.
It could well be that in half a century or less many of Europe's democracies could be replaced with Islamic governments subjecting its citizens to Sharia Law, and if the present situation isn't altered, the United States could follow.
Man's interference in God's natural laws always turns out to be catastrophic. Just look at the Chinese limiting the number of children per family, causing the abortion of millions of female babies and a few years later resulting in a serious shortage of marriage aged women.
Many young couples, for one reason or another, make a conscious decision not to have kids. I think the uncertain economic times frighten a lot of them and many more just don't want the responsibility of raising a family.
The importance of the nuclear family has been ridiculed by television shows that tout alternative lifestyles and freewheeling, promiscuous sex and terminating a pregnancy is almost as common as changing hairstyles in some quarters and now most of planet Earth is just about to pay the price.
As native populations decrease and immigrant populations increase, tensions over religion, politics, culture, language and lifestyles will escalate, with the immigrant population eventually winning on all counts and native populations living like foreigners in their own countries.
It takes 2.1 children per woman to maintain a static population.
Here are a few 2013 fertility rates of note:
Germany - 1.42
Spain - 1.48
Italy - 1.41
Greece - 1.4
Japan - 1.39
Czech Republic - 1.29
South Korea - 1.24
Predominantly Muslim countries:
Somalia - 6.17
Afghanistan - 5.54
Yemen - 4.27
Mauritania - 4.15
Sudan - 4.05
Iraq - 3.5
Jordan - 3.32
The fertility rate in the United States has fallen a few fraction points below the required 2.1 children per woman to maintain the native population, down to 2.06.
You do the math and consider the ramifications.
It is worth noting that France has had an increase in its fertility rate in the last 10 years. The reason? It has an increasing Muslim population.
What do you think?
