Big families: Bad for parents

As a child of the 70's, I remember too well what it was like. Coming in and infecting our collective minds were "free love", the oil crisis and the "population explosion."

As is wont of any cultural fad, the last one seems to be the hardest to go.

As evidenced in this story by the BBC, it is now "bad" to have large families.

US researchers looked at 21,000 couples living in Utah between 1860 and 1985, who bore a total of 174,000 children.

It was found the more children couples had, the worse their health and the more likely they were to die early.

The Proceedings of the National Academy of Science study is historical, but the experts say it helps explain both the menopause and modern family planning. Menopause appears to allow mothers to live longer and rear more offspring to adulthood

Dr Dustin Penn and Dr Ken SmithIn other species, the high physical costs of bearing and raising offspring explain why having as many offspring as possible is not ideal - even though it might appear to be the most successful way of continuing the species' existence.



Just like every other 'crisis' that we've faced - famine, population, oil shortages, pollution - we've found a way to overcome it. Usually it is due to technological advances.

The same is true of our longevity. This study is absolute rubbish because it looks at the lifespans of people going back to 1860. Up until 1940 people had significantly lower lifespans. With the development of vaccines - specifically against measles, mumps, syphilis, polio and influenza - people began to live much longer.

For these "researchers" to equate having large families as "unhealthful" for the parents is all part of the divide & conquer strategy of the Collective Left. They want to supplant the family unit with big government and enforced socialism. This study feeds into the idea that having kids now adays is a bad idea. It's part of the Left's death cult. The part of our society that says "if it feels good, do it" - no matter the risk.

My question is : Why doesn't someone tell the Muslims this? They're having extremely large families. No one is laying guilt trips on them for having multiple wives and dozens of children. As part of our alleged "enlightenment" in Western Civilzation we've adopted a suicidal agenda: small or no families. We are effectively doing the work of the jihadis - consciously keeping our numbers down out of some warped sense of cultural malaise.

Mark Steyn wrote eloquently about this in America Alone. I highly recommend his tome. It's a wake up call as to where we're at in the fight for Western Civ.

So go out, right now and knock up your wife or girlfriends. Tell them, if they protest, that denying you a baby means that the terrorists are winning!

Officer Nick Erfle was shot after he and his partner approached three people for jaywalking and obstructing traffic on 24th Street, one block north of Thomas Road.

One man gave a fictitious name that had a misdemeanor warrant and as they attempted to take him into custody, the suspect drew a weapon and shot Officer Erfle in the face. He was rushed to Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center where he died from his injuries an hour later.

The suspect then carjacked a vehicle and took the driver hostage. About an hour later, an unmarked special assignments unit spotted a car and suspect matching the carjacked vehicle's description.

They began surveillance and managed to box in the vehicle at 27th Avenue and McDowell Road. The suspect pointed his gun at the hostage and he was shot and killed by an officer. The suspect was later identified as an illegal alien with a felony record. He had been deported in 2006 and illegally re-entered the country.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured. The two females who were with the suspect when he was initially stopped were taken into custody for questioning.

God bless and commend your spirit, Officer Erfle.

I'm so sick and tired of hearing and reading these stories over and over again.

Deport the criminal illegal alients RIGHT NOW!!! This country deserves better than having these criminals roaming our streets.

White folks cannot reproduce since they have abused birth-control for years. They are a group that has become lazy. Soon they shall be the minority in America.

Brain-washed is the better term for it. All these "enlightened" white people bought into the notion that having kids was wrong: wrong for the environment, wrong for society and an obstacle to "true happiness".

Well we're paying the price for that hubris now.
