US Birth Rate Hits New Low … Lowest Since 1920


Yet another record for the Barack Obama as he resides over the lowest birth rate in the United States since the 1920′s.

The rate of babies born in the United States hit a record low in 2011, a new analysis shows. Researchers say the drastic drop in the birth rate among immigrants has greatly contributed to the overall decrease.

Based on preliminary data from the National Center for Health Statistics, the Pew Research Center calculated that the overall birth rate — the annual number of births per 1,000 women between 15 to 44 — was 63.2 last year. That’s the lowest since such reliable record collection began in 1920 and close to half the birth rate in 1957, amid the Baby Boom years.

The overall number of births declined 7 percent from 2007 to 2010. During this period, U.S.-born women saw a 5 percent birth-rate decline, while there was a 13 percent drop in births to immigrants. The drop was even more dramatic for Mexican immigrant women, at 23 percent.

      People who understand the responsibilities of raising children will not produce them in a socialist situation like we have in this country.

      It would be interesting to have an actual breakdown of births by race. Those that make their living off the birth of babies (welfare babies) probably have the highest rate. These are the least capable of producing children that can succeed in life.

      Some blame Obama but I blame Chaz Bono’s doctor.
      You spend hours creating the perfect man. An Adonis… and all he can shoot is Nerf Darts.

      Life, it is very cruel.
