Western civilization, born in ancient Greece and Rome, nurtured in Northern Europe, and matured in the United States and Canada, is dying. More specifically, we are killing ourselves. According to the CDC, the (age adjusted) white fertility rate in 2005 was only 1,840 live births per 1000 women aged 15-44, well below the replacement birth rate (See Table 15). To compare apples to apples, that CDC report of non-age-adjusted white fertility rate was 58.4 live births in 2004. Meanwhile the abortion rate was 10 per 1,000 women in that age group. That would work out to another 469 live births, putting the total fertility rate up over 2,300 per 1,000 white women of child-bearing age, well above the replacement rate.
Blacks fare a little better. Although their abortion rate (28 vs. 10) was higher, the Black Total Fertility Rate (TFR) was 2,020. The Hispanic abortion rate is 26.0 per 1,000 women of child-bearing age, but their TFR is 2,824.5. (The rate for Mexicans in America was 3,021.0!)
We are told that the wages of Sin is Death (Romans 6:23). We are dying.
