Act now to combat declining fertility rates.

Why Falling Fertility Rates Are a Crisis

The total fertility rate in the U.S. went down from a fairly robust 2.12 in 2007 to an anemic 1.64 in 2020. Remember, the minimum viable replacement rate is 2.1 kids per woman, which gets you just enough people to outweigh the number we lose naturally.

Over 38% of households have at least one dog. [Only] 30% of households have at least one child,” according to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation. The replacement rate is now too low to sustain the population in every Western country, and it’s dropping fast everywhere. By 2100, the fertility rate of nearly every nation on Earth is projected to fall below the replacement rate, even below 1.5 children per woman.

Why is it happening? Microplastics? Pollution? Lower sperm counts? Wearing tight pants?

“It has nothing to do with sperm counts or the usual things that come to mind when discussing fertility. Instead, it is being driven by more women in education and work, as well as greater access to contraception, leading to women choosing to have fewer children,” the BBC says. If the history books told the truth, feminism would beat out Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, and Adolf Hitler as the most successful genocider. 

Fanatics like Jill Filipovic are girlbossing themselves straight into swift genetic suicide, and they’re taking all of us down with them. Her powers have grown so great that she has transcended labels like “wine aunt” and “girl boss.” She now bestrides the Earth as the Final Wine Boss. 

The Consequences of Falling Fertility Rates

A terrifying 2020 study in The Lancet projects that the global number of children under 5 will fall from 681 million in 2017 to just 401 million by 2100. Meanwhile, the number of people over 80 will increase from 141 million in 2017 to 866 million by 2100. Social Security and Medicare solvency? That’s so 1990. Brace yourself, Grandpa! 

The study concludes with this: 

Our findings suggest that continued trends in female educational attainment and access to contraception will hasten declines in fertility and slow population growth. A sustained TFR [total fertility rate, or the average number of children a woman
