Declining Birthrates Part Two: Power to the Procreators


Democracy favors childbearing. By divine providence, the selfishness that leads to contraception, abortion, and a general refusal to have children necessarily disqualifies society’s “progressive” voices from having a voice in the next generation.

God gives us the ability to literally pro-create new human beings and He entrusts their education and spiritual development to the parents of such children. There is a full article from USA Today on this phenomenon. Below is a sampling of that article.

What’s the difference between Seattle and Salt Lake City? There are many differences, of course, but here’s one you might not know. In Seattle, there are nearly 45% more dogs than children. In Salt Lake City, there are nearly 19% more kids than dogs.

This curious fact might at first seem trivial, but it reflects a much broader and little-noticed demographic trend that has deep implications for the future of global culture and politics. It’s not that people in a progressive city such as Seattle are so much fonder of dogs than are people in a conservative city such as Salt Lake City. It’s that progressives are so much less likely to have children.

Biretta tip to the Holy Whapping.
