U.S. birth rate at record low in 2018, CDC says

  • Published on May 16, 2019
  • America's baby bust isn't over. The nation's birth rates last year reached record lows for women in their teens and 20s, a government report shows, leading to the fewest babies in 32 years. The provisional report, released Wednesday and based on more than 99% of U.S. birth records, found 3.788 million births last year. It was the fourth year the number of births has fallen, the lowest since 1986 and a surprise to some experts given the improving economy.

    This is what happens when school debt is high, and your school degree isn’t enough, ... now your stuck in 1 full time job and 2 part times, you still have your used car from college, and you still can’t make enough to leave from the house.... how are people suppose to have kids ? No surprise why depression and suicide rates are high ... sometimes being educated isn’t what the US needs, I’ve gone as far as contemplated to run away to another country and escape slavery ...

No more lies in the history books so that a genetically inferior recessive part human part creature neanderthal can manipulate religion and any other popsicle they may come across to put their self in a position that they weren't given to by God. No more slowly developing babies that can't walk on their own until they after a year old or hold their head up on their own until after they are a year old put no more special privilege to make a certain group of people feel Superior when in actuality science knows that's a damn lie put no more suicide some people when they learn the truth about their true history LOL and their true abilities LOL and realize there's no proof without their own giving public that God loves them.

    Mgtow/Redpill movement, lack of jobs, lack of higher wages ( stagnate ever since the 70s? ), shrinking middle-class and a bad planet altogether. Most men work 50 to 70 hours a week. No time for kids and family anymore.

    It's because of the women. It's all their fault. They've been trained incorrectly by the media and academia to be so snotty and difficult. They sure don't act like women anymore. Now men just don't even try for them anymore. It's easy to see why this is happening, and I think that this low birth rate thing is going to go way lower actually..What guy would want to sign up for this anymore?

  • Roy_Thousand

    Low birth rates is "NOT" a problem! Isn't the world overpopulated with over 7 billion and rising. Yes, birth rates are low in Western countries, First World countries, and some Second World countries, but the rest of the world is breeding like rabbits. The world has finite resources, so maybe a shrinking population is a good thing.

    That's because the US government has made it virtually impossible to afford babies not to mention the fact everyone in America is turning transgender . As you know nowadays even if a man looks like a man he isn't a man and doesn't have the organs to reproduce as a man. And a woman nowadays just because she looks like a woman doesn't mean she is a woman and doesn't have the reproductive organs either. This is why nobody's making babies because everybody's deciding that they are the opposite sex and you can't reproduce like that. There is no such thing as transgender I wish people would get that through their thick skulls and start making babies again

    It is true that everything is very expensive in the U.S. these days that for many couples it is not fee sable to have children. It used to be that one member of the family could be the bread winner,but as we got into the 90's it was becoming a country where it would take both to work to be able to actually survive in the U.S..Now days even when both work some have to work two jobs.It appears that many who are having children are relying on government support.With the current illegal immigrant problem this appears to be the only way to build up the population in the U.S..At what cost though.Many of these individuals coming across will most likely have 3 or more children and will most likely rely on that government assistance.Either way the taxpayer looses in the long run !!!

Treat women like a penny stock pump and dump if you fall in love 95% of the time you become a victim to her. Now for reason 2 there will be a WW3 and your kids will be the ones paying for it when they grow up and that is if they don’t end up in a war draft from 17 years old and up could even be younger if the Evil leaders change the law. So remember every kid being born is a victim to the evil Leaders

    Don't know about everyone else but when I was 5 years old I knew I didn't want children. I'm 33 years old now and still feel the exact same way I did 28 years ago.

      DEADPOOL 4 months ago +1

      juan cervantes, lol. To be fair it was 1990. Things were a lot different back then. Not to mention kids having "adult" opinions on serious subjects is inherently funny. Also, a five year old knows hardly anything about the world. So from that perspective it would make sense to see humor in such a statement. The only problem was that I was speaking from something internal, not a response to the outside world. It can be difficult distinguish between clear vision and distorted perception when it comes to kids. That's part of the job of a parent. To guide children along. The things that are true will continue to be true and the things that a child might have a poor understanding of will alter with time or be abandoned completely. Laughter in the given context was appropriate.

    • juan cervantes
      juan cervantes 4 months ago +2

      DEADPOOL she laughed? Why would she find humor in that statement? Also you're telling her what you want and shes basically saying you're wrong. Sounds like an arrogant person.

      DEADPOOL 4 months ago +2

      juan cervantes, I actually remember sitting in the kitchen playing when I told my mom. She laughed and said that I didn't know what I wanted. At that age I didn't know how to convey the innate feeling that I had, but I knew that it wasn't fleeting.

      Gays have always existed, the difference is that they are sometimes allowed to admit it. Making those people hide isn't going to make them have babies. Russia still stigmatizes gays, yet it can't solve their birth rate problems.
