It’s an Obama World… US Birthrates at Lowest Level Since 1920 Due to Recession

The US birthrate has reached its lowest level since 1920.

The Wall Street Journal reported, via Free Republic:

A steep decline in births among immigrant women hard hit by the recent recession is the driving force behind the record low U.S. birthrate, according to the Pew Research Center.

The annual number of births per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44 dropped 8% in the U.S. from 2007 to 2010 to 64 births per 1,000, according to a report released Thursday by the nonpartisan Pew center. The U.S. birthrate peaked during the baby boom, at 122.7 in 1957.

Immigrant women, both legal and illegal, still have a higher birthrate than the U.S. population as a whole. Yet the rate for foreign-born women dropped 14% between 2007 and 2010, to 87.8 births per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44, compared with a 6% decline for U.S.-born women, to 58.9 births. The birthrate plunged 19% for immigrants of Hispanic origin during that period; among Mexicans, the largest group among Hispanics, the rate plunged 23%.

    given the UN’s mission, along with Planned Parenthood’s and the International Science group, for NO families to be having babies via ‘random’ circumstances, like marriage, by 2025, he’s making fabulous headway. Africa has, despite the (actually there is a reason it’s not been addressed, much like our fiscal cliff) widespread AIDS, historically been very family oriented. THe U.S. is now playing hardball and will not give financial aid unless contraception and abortion are imposed.

    In case any of you are STILL burying your heads in teh sand the reason that GATES, BUFFETT, SOROS and Obama all are STRONG proponents of abortion, euthanasia and sterilization is that the plan is by 2025 to FINALLY put in place Hitler’s plan for a master race. There have been scientists with consciences leaking this (never to be heard from again) and of course the media has imposed absolute silence.

    If they can just get this next generation to sign on to gay marriage/euthanasia/abortion/contraception marriage, as it has done in the Netherlands, will be wiped out and the population massively wiped out, with the young and the ‘riff raff’, without any hope, given atheism being imposed, committing suicide.

    2025 has been the years since the 1980s for the ‘master race’ to be imposed. Those who are not to be part of the ‘haves’ will be engineered somewhat like Logan’s run. You’ve seen the microchipping and the GMO food. The slave class, never to EVER again become an upwardly mobile middle class, will be more or less programmed to be apathetic, sterile, subservient and without any human dignity.

    If you honestly still think this sounds like science fiction, please take a look at hte difference between 2008 and now and look at our relations with all of our western allies adn with our supposed ‘enemies’ and do realize that our mosque construction has doubled while Christianity has been blocked and persecuted.

    And now that I’ve told you forget about it since it will only be 1% who will have hte courage to do more than whine and quake and shiver. The rest of you will be whinging up till the minute that you exterminated.

    for you 1%: pray as if it all depends on God and act as if it all depends on you, meaning be ready for some extraordinary heroism and sacrifice.

    God have mercy on us.

    this story initiated a brief conversation

    A Useful Tool expressed that Germany’s low birth rate is the reason for their good economy.
    I countered that a Society which fails to replenish itself will die- it is collapsing and is a strong signal of a people who are soulless.
    He responded that India’s economy is hurt by their population. I was too stunned to say anything except, “uhhh, that’s not how it works.”

    I’ve tried before to expose Leftist values to these people, but it hadn’t occurred to me until today that I work with ‘useful tools’ who are okay with depopulation. From previous conversations I’ve known how deep Leftism has sunk into American culture and infected even otherwise decent people. It is now considered mainstream to view Leftism as the norm.

    Tyranny ALWAYS comes from The Left, Tyranny NEVER comes the Right. Even for me, it’s really hard to come face-to-face with nominally decent Americans who will tolerate Tyranny.

    Come on you Millennials and X generation folks; who do you think are going to fund your Social Security payments?

    (Hope you did not vote for Obama.)

    Ghost, education deliberately took out scientific logic and distraction was put in place to block people from grasping subjects that 60 years ago would have been no brainers. People do not think seriously and they are encouraged to fixate on their adolescent hormone behavior until death, keeping any possibility of being able to unify to oppose this obsession with death and oppression for all but the ‘chosen’ race.

    BEcause it’s a secular world, there is no use showing how this has been discussed and evidence through all of civilization and warned against supernaturally.

    if you get the chance try and find “If Only They Had Listened” the new documentary on Rwanda. Supernatural messages came through and they did not heed, even though the biggest skeptics admitted these were real.

    As Our Lady put it the whole world is heading for perdition…which ironically most of the world has been indoctrinated to believe does not exist.

    Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say

    [Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed
    because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is
    no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to
    Oxford University has argued.]

    Throwing down the gauntlet

    [Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential
    persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly
    are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’
    in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.

    “We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her.”

    As such they argued it was “not possible to damage a newborn by
    preventing her from developing the potentiality to become a person
    in the morally relevant sense”.]

    The pro-choice case for infanticide.

    [When circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. … We propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.]

    Congresswoman: We’re Not ‘Promoting Sterilization’
    of College Girls, We’re Just Making It Free, 3/19/12

    [Rep. Schakowsky said:“You know, this attack on women’s health care is–I think the compromise that the president has offered and that the rulemaking from HHS, I think, is a good one. This is not about, you know, college-age girls getting sterilization when they want it–no.”

    “I mean, there may be situations where for medical reasons and
    in consultation with the doctor that sterilization procedures are
    warranted for the health of a young woman,” said Schakowsky.

    “Contraception and related procedures, contraception was declared one of the top 10 preventive health services of the 20th century by the Centers for Disease Control,” said Schakowsky, “and the reason for these regulations is to protect the health of women, women of all ages, so that they can afford to get the preventive care that they need.”]

    -Term Abortions for Any Reason …

    [Planned Parenthood Works to Maintain U.S. Position as One of
    Four Nations in the World with the Most Radical Pro-Abortion Policies

    As Planned Parenthood prepares to celebrate its 96th birthday in October, Americans United for Life launches a month-long series of revelations – the release of “The Planned Parenthood Exhibits,” the continuing case for investigating the nation’s largest abortion provider. Each day in the month of October, AUL will release a new backgrounder that highlights grounds for investigating and, ultimately, de-funding Planned Parenthood, which receives more than one million dollars a day in taxpayer subsidies.]

    Well, many factors, free contraception? Maybe. More allowance on Planned Parenthood, Maybe.

    Less Sex and more work, tired, what ever the reason, I do believe Obama is happier, less people to give free health care too.

    I am pretty sure we would call this the big D word if all the people receiving food stamps had to wait in line like they did for soup back in the days.

    It always amazed me to look at the statues of ancient Greeks and Romans and how caucasian they looked, and what these two countries look like now. We are next.
