Family Research Council: Europe, start procreating
You folks across the pond are simply too concerned about the planet and aren’t spending enough time in the sack engaging in procreative sex. So says Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.
Thanks to the BBC’s new emphasis on this crisis, Europe may finally wake up to the reality that its culture is on the verge of extinction. With global birth rates plummeting, the concern over saving the earth may soon be replaced by concern over whom we’re saving it for. As the traditional family declines, fewer children are being born to replace and support the world’s graying society.
As our friend Allan Carlson has observed, “Of the 10 nations with the lowest birth rates worldwide, nine are in Europe.” Countries like Slovakia are producing only 50,000 children a year, compared to 100,000 in 1974. In nations like Russia, Belarus, and the Czech Republic, the birth rate is hovering at a mere 1.2 children per woman. The World Congress of Families (WCF) has warned of this “demographic winter” for years but only recently have the media begun to notice the chill. FRC has worked with the WCF to raise awareness of this trend. Now that we have the attention of the international community, FRC will continue to call on world leaders to implement pro-marriage and pro-family policies.
Actually, what Tony appears to be saying is that there aren’t enough melanin-challenged people knocking boots. The brown folks are multiplying like bunnies. That’s what John Gibson advised Americans on Faux News:
“By far, the greatest number [of children under five] are Hispanic. You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic.” Gibson later claimed: “To put it bluntly, we need more babies.” Then, referring to Russia’s projected decline in population, Gibson claimed: “So far, we are doing our part here in America but Hispanics can’t carry the whole load. The rest of you, get busy. Make babies, or put another way — a slogan for our times: ‘procreation not recreation’.”
