Another Baby Boom?!? March 18, 2009Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
This is interesting. Apparently 2007 marked the beginning of yet another Baby Boom (or Boomlet).
Put it this way, just in the circle of my family and friends I have three nephews under 2 years old, a second cousin under 2, and my cousin and his wife are expecting another child.
But there are some interesting points in the article such as:
The birth rate rose slightly for women of all ages, and births to unwed mothers reached an all-time high of about 40 percent, continuing a trend begun years ago. More than three-quarters of these women were 20 or older.
For a variety of reasons, it’s become more acceptable for women to have babies without a husband, said Duke University’s S. Philip Morgan, a leading fertility researcher.
Even happy couples may be living together without getting married, experts say. Some cited a growing trend among all adult women to have children regardless of their marital status.
How come the religious aren’t yammering about that little statistic? What, what, a one parent family? What?
The last paragraph of the quote is more telling. The first sentence, that they may be living together without being married. Why that’s a sin according to the religious nuts.
My theory is as an economy craters there is less money for entertainment. The only option left is to fuck. And if there is no money for entertainment then there is no money for contraception.
The bright side of this is that there will people to pay off the deficits left us by Bush & Co.
