    No. You have to make up for all the TTC couples. Get to it!

    Also, I will require pics (IM pls) to prove such rug rats exist. If any of them is under six weeks old, I will require you to rub a tissue over their head, seal said tissue in plastic and snail mail it to me.

    I aged out of grandmotherhood and am now awaiting the great grands.

The smart people should be having at least as many babies as the stupid people for balance.
    I believe a movie was made about that.

To me it sounds like an advancement when women don't feel like they have to "commence procreation phase" as soon as they get married, and they don't feel the need to get married before they turn 21.

    The best population control has always been educating women.
    I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't read the article either.

    We should both go stand in the corner until we realize the error of our ways. Fair warning: If I get to the corner first, you'll have to pick a different corner. I Don't Play Well With Others.

    P.S.: US FERTILITY RATES don't apply to just a whiter shade of pale.

    The article suggests all races are not having children, not just whites.

    That's pretty funny. :P

    But smart folks will never be able to outbreed stupid people. Anyway, I think the better solution for that is to work on education and training for those that need it. I am sure that many more can be reached, that have been reached.

    Getting back to birth rate... the article also mentions that women are staying in school longer, working more, etc... so it may not be a biological reason at all.
