This is news? That’s like saying that the sun rises in the East is news. It’s what ALWAYS has happened.......just look at the birth rates during the Great Depression!
Sorry, maybe some folks are doing that. I view most of CNN’s output with some suspicion. Among my bros and I, I have five, but two only have two apiece, and the last has three. Medical reasons for those with but the two. One of those higher-ups at my primary employer has nine. But then, like me, he’s Catholic. I know CNN wouldn’t say it like this, but perhaps it might have been better said as, “In A Tough Economy, With Obamacare, Americans Are Less Inclined To Try To Have More Children.” But they wouldn’t, would they?
Bucking the trend here... my 4th child Lily was born 3:50 AM this past Saturday. :-)
This runs counter to what I’ve been observing. Lots of my daughters friends have had babies in the last few years. Ages in late twenties / early thirties. And both of my daughters are pregnant. Told them I would welcome as many grandchildren as they wish to have. We’re all conservatives. So maybe it’s libs who are having declining birthrates (good).
