Spotlighting important information gleaned from other pro-life blogs…

  • Culture Campaign cites a Washington Post article noting that economic prosperity no longer translates to a low fertility rate in some highly developed countries. According to the article…

    … new research has produced the first glimmer of hope that economic prosperity may not be linked to an inexorable decline in fertility. The new analysis has found that in many countries, once a nation achieves an especially high level of development, women appear to start having more babies again.

    Furthermore, the article acknowledges the oft-denied fact that many countries are in need of higher fertility rates. While overpopulationists would have us believe that the world is already overcrowded, the article plainly states that the fertility rates in many highly developed countries will not sustain necessary population growth. Perhaps secular culture is beginning to see the light.

  • Sometimes in the day-to-day grind, it’s easy to view only the pro-life defeats, the sad news, or the downright tragedies. In a whimsical reminder of the joys of parenthood, ProWomanProLife draws attention to a response to author Corinne Maier’s No Kids: 40 Good Reasons Not to Have Children, entitled 40 Reasons to Have Children. Some of the best:
    • Their successes give you reason to feel proud, if not because you helped, then because they are related.
    • Nothing smells better than freshly washed kids.
    • Someone in the house knows how to work your iPod/phone/camera/DVD player.
  • Wesley J. Smith reports that (surprise, surprise!) a Gallup Poll panel revealed only 20% of seniors believe Obama’s healthcare plan will benefit their health status. Smith quotes from the Politico:

    A July 31 Gallup poll found that just 20% of Americans aged 65 and older believe health care reform would improve their own situation, noticeably lower than the 27% of 18- to 49-year olds and 26% of 50 to 64-year olds who say the same.

    Clearly, the over 65 population isn’t going to let this one go without a fight, as the article states they are packing town hall sessions with their representatives.
