Numbers Up

This article might make good the phrase, "A baby is proof God wishes the world to continue."

At least we are close to the replacement rate, if not just under it:
Nelson attributes the 2007 numbers to a "perfect storm" of factors: more immigrants having children, professional women who delayed childbearing until their 40s, and larger numbers of women in their 20s and 30s in the population, keeping the fertility rate high. The average number of births per woman was 2.1 in 2006, the highest since 1971.
And one wonders what those numbers would be like if it were not for the attitude the Culture of Death promotes.
