  • I wanted to have kids, but my ex-wife couldn’t stop banging the neighborhood guys long enough to get pregnant by me. That’s also why we got divorced too.

  • Neither women nor men are supposed to be slaves to each other.
    BOTH women & men who breed/reproduce are guilty forcing suffering & eventual death onto nonconsenting individuals whether those new individuals are men or women.
    I support men’s rights activists as much as I support women’s rights activists.

  • Well I certainly don’t know anyone between 16 to 28 with bags of money. I mean seriously it takes money to raise kids too. Not saying Im not glad but maybe a lot more common sense may be what is actually happening.

  • Iit should be high, that’s when girls (who are really women) are most fertile and have greatest sexual desire. You feminist just can’t deal with that. You want fertility to begin at 40 after you had your career. No knowledge of birth control BS. All teen girls no what is going on and they have easy access to birth control they just need to use it.

  • It’s the lack of interest by men and women for birth of babies. People should put aside all the negative interests and aspects of having babies. If we were not born in this world, we would not be here right now. We all owe it to our parents and we all should do the same, no matter all the difficulties we may face by having babies. New born deserves a life and future in this world.

  • Gee, it’s just crazy how people want to be more financially stable before they have kids. And darn those teenagers for being more responsible too.
    It’s almost like having an increasingly unstable government makes people think twice about bringing a child into a world where they can’t even feel safe at school.

  • Abstinence only programs just don’t work. The people in congress promoting them need to consider whether they’d rather teens having sex or higher rates of pregnancy/STI’s. Like really it’s easy which is worse.

  • @The Coding Theory The only countries that are overpopulated are in Africa and Asia. 3rd worlders are responsible for it. Africa and India must stop breeding, not America or Europe.

  • I heard that it was caused by farting cows. About how humanity eats way too much meat and because of our appetite for meat there is a huge number of cows being bred for human consumption, and all of those cows far and that is what’s causing the greenhouse gases and causing global warming. That’s why global CO2 is on the rise. Oh wait, you’re talking about the Birth Rate decline. I blame it on the same farting cows, it’s hard to mate when you can’t breathe.

  • More lamestream ginned up media horseshit, all of a sudden a 2% drop, which is really just a trivial adjustment is a national crisis, there were still 3.85 million births, too many if you ask me. We need less births and more deaths, I’ll be really.blunt If I am diagnosed with cancer or some other terminal dise ase I am not having it treated.

  • Old school, where does that come from? Here’s a clue the Bible. Rules on living and lots of examples of what happens when you exceed God’s plan for Humanity. The universe has the five laws that govern its physical reality and God gave Man 10. Good luck brother I feel your pain!

  • Marriage is only for the spiritual and the rich. Women will not procreate with unattractive, fat, short and poor men. Men have to let that sink in their egocentric skulls. Which sane woman will be attracted to a Garden Gnome?

  • CBS can’t connect the dots…?

    Women in their 20-30s focusing on careers.
    Men walking away from marriage because its a bad deal.
    Women having access to abortion.

  • Don’t know about everyone else but when I was 5 years old I knew I didn’t want children. I’m 33 years old now and still feel the exact same way I did 28 years ago.

  • Men are becoming wiser. Woman want to get knocked up and live off of Government assistence while the man pays child support working a $9.50 an hour job.

    One thing about your hand is that it won’t cheat, talk back or file a lawsuit.

  • Every word u said������ nailed it man!!! Honestly as a woman I feel as much as it dismays me.. those things u said r true… women have changed in too many negitive ways.. BUT men have to, people as a whole have changed for the worst, they r too brainwashed by all the social media bullshitt that’s making them way too proud, triggered and selfish and until we shape up as a spices, I think less is more as far as breeding goes.. honestly….������

  • I’m a Spanish teenager and I have sax education courses every year. I can even go to a sort of “communal center” where I can talk to professionals or get condoms or pills for free. I don’t know anybody who got an unwanted pregnancy

  • Someone posted this and God bless him for telling the true.���������� Keep up the great job brothers ����. No more falling victim to marriage where men have no rights in the courts. Treat women like a penny stock pump and dump if you fall in love 95% of the time you become a victim to her. Now for reason 2 there will be a WW3 and your kids will be the ones paying for it when they grow up and that is if they don’t end up in a war draft from 17 years old and up could even be younger if the Evil leaders change the law. So remember every kid being born is a victim to the evil Leaders

  • i just wanna let know that problems are likely to happen but solutions should not be left out. well i understand what you are passing through because i and my husband once went through such difficulty, well if interested you can get back to me so that i can direct on what you need to do and i can assure you that it gonna be solve ok, and nothing only that, if you have any Marital issues you can as well contact me for directions

  • Were pushing 8 billion people. Resources will start to deplete. Planet and other life being destroyed. There is no balance left. If the population doesnt decline soon it will be a disaster. Not to mention more disease that we are seeing now due to the pandemic. It’s going to be far worse in the near future with antibiotic resistance

  • The rich have been grabbing more money for themselves since at least the 1880s.

    With real wages dropping, crap jobs, no job security, and with working people having barely enough to live on, of course the birth rate is dropping.

    This is a * GOOD * thing! With fewer people, rent and house prices will drop. Pay for skilled labor will go up.

    The government is just bitching because the will have less tax money coming in. But they don’t do jack for working people.

  • If teen birth rates in the U.S. are the lowest they’ve ever been this doesn’t mean they’re really low in total terms. Just in relative terms.

  • In the 1950’s income taxes came to 3% of a family’s income. Today, when you have a two income family one parent is working just to cover the taxes. Government addiction to high taxes combined with feminism mocking motherhood as patriarchal oppression while vilifying and excluding fathers have made having children a very difficult choice for many people.

  • Yeah it is funny how only civilized societies have trouble with birth rate while poor countries are doing really good with birth rate.

  • You missed a big one. ABORTION. Guys pressure the girl into having an abortion for selfish reasons or she decides to have an abortion. Pornography is also a big problem in society. Guys see females as objects for their sexual pleasure, not as people. Today’s fashion for women is very objectifying as well. Nothing left to the imagination. Young women think their whole self worth is wrapped up in their sexuality. It comes down to a moral decline in society and the breakdown of the family. We are not meant to have multiple sex partners. It ruins a person in my opinion and contributes to the spread of disease. I’m speaking as a person who has had one sexual partner and has been married for 40 years. My greatest joy in life is God and family. Call me old fashion.
