Fertility numbers are on a drastic decline worldwide, at least according to the latest CDC stats. The stats show that fertility and birth rate are on the decline not only in Europe but also in the United States.
According to the Institute for Family Studies: “2017 provisional estimate of fertility for the entire U.S. indicates about 3.85 million births in 2017 and a total fertility rate of about 1.76 births per woman.”
To give you a point of reference, a decade ago, that number was 4.31 million and 2.08 births per woman.
The decline is affecting minorities more than anyone. Alaska Natives and American Indians have lost 83,000 births from 2008 to 2016. Blacks have lost 700,000 people in their population, which calculates to a 9.6% drop. Whites have dropped 9.3%.
These numbers do not take into account abortion.
“Some states have lost far more births than others, while lucky North Dakota has seen an increase in births,” reports IFS. “In terms of change in age-adjusted fertility, the sharpest declines in births have been in Arizona, where fertility has fallen from 2.47 births per woman in 2007, to an estimated 1.81 in 2017. Provisional data from early 2018 suggests these declines are likely to continue.”
So then what is causing such drastic declines in fertility? Could it be that both women and men are being overly medicated and vaccinated?
