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 could be a good day no more Wars, no more racism oh, no more jealous of other races or Envy of other races to the point you try to put them at a disadvantage, no more abnormal sexual perfect, no more need for guns, no more need for protection for animals As far as Extinction from being hunted or sexual abuse, no more diseases being spread around the world God's chosen people no longer have to get vaccines just like the people in Centennial island or any other area where there's few Neanderthal / creature humans, no more drugs in the water and food to lower certain groups IQ so the Neanderthal creature can I have a chance in life, no more need for sunblock because all the people that the traitor of the sand May will be able to live with no problem with the Sun LOL and so on and so on, no more worried about pedophiles little boys and girls can grow up and live a normal life. 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.

    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?

    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 !!!

    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 Month 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, 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.

    It's because women are working and going to college, and the average Men are leaving.

I'm not saying that this is terrible because its female nature, and hypergamy. Females always wanna do better and have more resources, and They will 95% sacrifice their culture and family just for that extra scrap of resource.

In fact, you'll be lucky if your children survive pregnancy, as the urge for women to avoid responsibility and commit infanticide is at an all time high.
