The excuse of overpopulation is often bandied about by the anti-life crowd. All the major pro-abortion groups list overpopulation as a chief reason for pushing abortion. One simply has to look at the websites of such groups as Marie Stopes
In a recent article I discussed the growing trend of Christians leaving church (mainly in America), while still remaining followers of Jesus. They have found other ways to fellowship and grow together with other Christians, but they are basically “done”
A number of scholarly works have now noted the connection between religion and demographics. Faith and fertility it seems are closely linked. Consider for example sociologist Eric Kaufmann’s 2010 volume, Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?
The Islamification of the UK and Europe is well under way. Creeping sharia continues unabated, and the indicators of this transformation are everywhere to be found. The most recent was this headline from the Daily Mail: “Mohammed is now the
A one trillion dollar package; a 2000 page bill; a win by just seven votes; and one big meltdown of a nation. That about sums up the numbers on the passage of Obama’s health care bill. While the President has
Every reason offered for abortion is a bad reason. But there is one reason often thrown around which is not only bad, but dumb. I refer to those who argue that abortion is necessary because it helps to control our
In many secular endeavours, success is often measured in terms of numerical growth: more, bigger and better are usually indications of doing something right. But it does not always work that way in the kingdom of God. Indeed, one principle
Nicholas Eberstadt has written extensively on population issues over the past few decades. His writings are an important antidote to the gloom and doom prophets such as Paul Erhlich. In this article (written for the Winter 2006 edition of
Organisations concerned about over-population seem to have their views presented in the media quite often. They regularly appear in the press expressing fears about over-crowding in Australia. Many express concern that Australia is over-populated and that urgent action must be
I and others have been warning for years now that the once Christian West is quickly dissipating, with a muscular Islam easily overcoming the effeminate and spineless Christian churches. Everywhere we see Islam on the rise and Christianity on the
We are often told that in order to save the planet, we must have fewer kids. Warnings about overpopulation and resources scarcity are being coupled with exhortations to go childless, or to have as few kids as possible. All sorts
Not everyone can have children, and not everyone wants children. That’s OK. There is no law mandating fecundity. For various reasons, many may want to forgo the whole involved process of bearing and raising children.
These are not good days for Europe. It has lost its way and seems incapable of recognising the many dangers and threats it is facing. Many Europeans recognise that an ideological, spiritual and cultural malaise has swept
Blankley’s thesis is quite simple: America (and other Western nations like Australia) have an enormous amount to lose if the West does not halt the slide of Europe into Eurabia. Eurabia is what many are calling the ongoing
World depopulation has become the most important, and alarming, new demographic trend to emerge in the past few decades. While the world has experienced low fertility rates before, they have been due to great social disruptions
All over the world birthrates are falling. This may be most evident in the Western world, but falling fertility rates are found throughout the developing world as well. The implications of this trend are a matter of
On August 9 the Australian federal census will take place. There have been various concerns expressed about this from different quarters. Some are legitimate concerns while others are less so. So let me look at some of these issues.
Plenty of people are now asking, ‘Whither Europe?’ It has been in serious trouble for decades now, and with the twin problems of Christianity in decline and Islam in the ascendency, the situation continues to further deteriorate. Mistaken policies of
