How utterly racist. No black babies (oh wait, the Democrats are working with PP to forestall that), no Asian babies born of mothers from China, Korea, elsewhere here on a “birth vacation to have an American Baby”, no poor downtrodden Mexican illegal anchor babies?
How racist to expect that a country orginally comprised largely comprised of whites now expects that its white women propagate the species...... the effing nerve......what about all them little Mexican anchor babies whose mothers apparently are doing the job white women don’t want to do....
Don’t forget that the writer used to work for Silky Pony and was so vile she managed to get herself fired from there.
Ms. Marcotte has fallen victim to the same fatal flaw as the rest of our current culture: She gives NO consideration at all to the wise purposes or plan of her Creator.

The one good thing about declining birth rates is that it will eventually destroy the welfare state. This Ponzi scheme collapses pretty quickly if you don’t have more people paying into the system than taking out of it. If feminists were truly concerned about maintaining the welfare state, they would encourage woman to have more children, but this conflicts with their fantasy about being able to have it all without any consequences.
Perhaps someone should set this author up with this guy(I mean David Benatar, not Al Mohler)-
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don't work you die.”
Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in a net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 315 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by an additional 125 million to 440 million. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the worlds third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country (except for Ireland and Australia, which have lower fertility rates) in the world, i.e., 0.9% (2012 estimate,) principally due to immigration.
The US will not be declining in population anytime soon.
She makes an awful lot of assumptions about women (and men).
No one has to end up as “support staff” if they don’t want to. That is a choice that two people make when they decide to procreate. It doesn’t HAVE to be the woman who becomes “support staff”. She just makes that assumption because appeasement to the status quo is all she knows.
Feminists are oddly adherred to the status quo I’ve found. On the whole they are not very imaginative or adventurous so they just assume no one else is.
Hispanics, Muslims and blacks have high birth rates and are immigrating to the U.S. in droves. They will keep the U.S. population birthrate relatively stable. The problems is that these folks will not be adding but taking from the public treasury so the kind of taxpayer subsidized day-care-from-infancy that Ms Marcotte so values as the way to middle class white women’s ‘freedom’ from boring, career-stifling motherhood will likely no longer be sustainable.
Chill Amanda I quit drinking so hooking up with you is not going to happen. Now go wash my shirt.
The ironic thing is, opinions matter little. The side that has more people will win.
Being a mother is hard work, sad that the money needs of society makes it harder. Families are disappearing. Children are costly. Abortion and the pill beckon, like Captain Ahab, to what is perceived to be the good life. God’s increase and multiply are overcome. We beat God. Really?
Everyone with enough work ethic to dig a ditch or enough intelligence to repair a vehicle should be having children—lots of them. All who sit on their rear ends and regulate against others having children, on the other hand,...
Or, more like middle-class men need to marry women who are interested in becoming mothers and their husbands' support.
Nobody wants to have a kid with her, and her ovaries are getting old.
That's why she's bitching.
