Demographic Winter

I stumbled across this, and was curious, so I checked it out! I'm really glad I did, now knowing what it is. I was surprised to read of this "catastrophe" as they call it. It is a DVD about the declining fall of the world's population. For an average family the birthrate is 1.1 - 2.1 children. With Europe being #1 on the decline of children. 9 out of the 10 are in Europe. The Russian government is paying their citizens to have children. $9,200 per kid after the first child! Can you imagine a country that has to "PAY" them to have a family! It is so absurd...what happened to children being a blessing from the Lord?

Warning, not for young readers.*(from prairie muffin blog)

… “The fall in the birth rate, he said, was an “epidemic” far worse, but given less attention, than obesity. Young Austrians, he said, were committing national suicide if they failed to procreate. And if it were not possible to reverse the population decline they would have to understand the necessity of an “intelligent immigration policy.” Eighty five year old Carl Djerassi the Austrian chemist who helped invent the contraceptive pill now says that his co-creation has led to a “demographic catastrophe.”
The assault began with a personal commentary in the Austrian newspaper Der Standard by Carl Djerassi. The Austrian chemist was one of three whose formulation of the synthetic progestogen Norethisterone marked a key step toward the earliest oral contraceptive pill.
Djerassi outlined the “horror scenario” that occurred because of the population imbalance, for which his invention was partly to blame. He said that in most of Europe there was now “no connection at all between sexuality and reproduction.” He said: “This divide in Catholic Austria, a country which has on average 1.4 children per family, is now complete.”
He described families who had decided against reproduction as “wanting to enjoy their schnitzels while leaving the rest of the world to get on with it.”
The head of Austria’s Catholics, Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, told an interviewer that the Vatican had forecast 40 years ago that the pill would lead to a dramatic fall in the birth rate in the west.
“Somebody above suspicion like Carl Djerassi … is saying that each family has to produce three children to maintain population levels, but we’re far away from that,” he said.”…

If you haven’t watched the documentary Demographic Winter, you NEED to watch it. Here is the link:

It makes me thankful that we have chosen to obey the Lord, and procreate:) We want our family to thrive and survive this Demographic Winter! We pray you all will be touched by this video, and take it upon yourselves to pray about this for your own family.
