Guest Post: The Under-Population Crisis

February 12th, 2008 by Halli

From David Ripley, Idaho Chooses Life

In a time when global warming has been declared by various social prophets to be the great challenge facing the world, a coalition of groups has produced a new video on “the catastrophic consequences of rapidly falling birthrates.”

The video is entitled, “Demographic Winter: The Decline of the Human Family”.

The group’s website points to Europe as the most endangered region of the developed world. The European Union estimates that, because of declining birthrates across the continent, Europe will face a shortfall of 20 million workers by the year 2030. Population stability requires a birthrate of 2.1 babies per woman; Europe’s average birthrate is just 1.3 babies per woman. According to the groups sponsoring the website, no European country is giving birth to enough children to maintain its population.

The group cites demographic studies which show that Russian will lose one-third of its population by 2050.

America is teetering on the edge of population stagnation, with some demographers predicting that the nation’s economy will be increasingly dependent upon immigrants.

Demographic Winter is produced by a collation of pro-family organizations, including the Heritage Foundation, Family Research Council, World Congress of Families and the Latin American Alliance for the Family.

In the section of their website which details the explanations for this worldwide population decline, the sponsors do not specifically use the word abortion. Rather, they point to the decline of the family and the widespread indoctrination of children in the 60s and 70s regarding the dangers of “population explosion” as primary causes for decisions to avoid bearing children.

“…[E]very aspect of modernity works against family life and in favor of singleness and small families or voluntary childlessness,” the website explains.

    Did you come up with this all by your little lonesome, David? I’m surprised at how well you can string words together to form things that appear to be sentences!

    Good job, it appears all of that expensive rehab is working out

    They have been saying things like this about demographics for decades. Sadly, they were right. Population growth has been decelerating this past decade. There are already 29 countries that have a negative growth rate.

    So what? Have you idiots ever observed a self-correcting system? Do you remotely understand how mathematicians calculated that there would be overshoot and then a small period of declining worldwide population until it reaches a settled point?

    Oh wait, that would require that you people have an education, something I have found lacking, even if you went to school.
