Liberal Goal Nearly Achieved in 2021: Zero Population Growth:
As of July 1, 2020, there were 331,501,080 people living in the United States of America, according to the Census Bureau’s estimate. A year later, there were 331,893,745.
That was an increase of only 392,665—or 0.1%.
In a press release published last week, the Census Bureau announced that this was the lowest annual rate of population growth “since the nation’s founding.”
To put that in perspective, the 392,665 increase in the number of people living in the United States between July 1, 2020 and July 1, 2021 was less than half the 862,320 unborn babies the Guttmacher Institute stated in its own latest estimate were aborted in 2017.
The fact that this nation’s population had an annual growth rate of nearly zero in the Census Bureau’s latest estimate should make liberal environmentalists happy. Demographically, America now seems headed in the direction they would like to see it take.
Back in 1973, John P. Holdren wrote an essay published by the California Institute of Technology’s Population Program. At the time, Holdren, who has a doctorate in physics from Stanford, was a professor at the University of California at Berkeley. He would later become the director of former President Barack Obama’s White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. --->READ MORE HERE
Immigration Tops U.S. Births for the First Time:
There is both bad news and good news for Planned Parenthood these days. Even while abortion made a brief stop once again at the Supreme Court, its numbers are dropping.
A few years ago, abortion hit its lowest rate since it was legalized. The drop in abortion rates parallels the fall in birth rates. Both stem from a decline in pregnancies.
America isn’t becoming more moral, only more lonely.
A recent New York Times headline declared, “The Married Will Soon Be the Minority”. But it’s not just the married, but anyone in a relationship or who is connected to other people.
Marriage rates hit an all-time low around the same time, with the single population rising sharply. But the singles weren’t just postponing marriage in favor of extended relationships, because there was also a sharp drop in the rates of physical intimacy between men and women.
Americans were becoming more lonely even before the pandemic. The arrival of the pandemic divided families, cut off grandparents from grandchildren, parents from adult children, children from other children, and made the country an even more lonely and isolated place. --->READ MORE HERE
