In 2018, the U.S. saw not only a 32-year low in total births, but also a record-setting dip in national fertility rates.

1: People can't support them. 2: People don't want to give life when global warming guarantees they won't have a full one. 3: People don't want to subject their children to the cruelty and hate that exists in today's society. 4: People don't want their daughters to be a slave to the male gender. 5: People don't want their children to be tested incessantly making them a high anxiety adult. 6: People don't want their children's lives to be a side note in the public domain.
I could go on and on and on...

Maybe it has something to do with the cost of living and cost of childcare.

"America:*worst mother mortality rates in the developed world* *only developed country without universal health care* *minimal maternity leave* *constantly cutting from programs that would help feed and care for children in poverty*
Also America: Why aren't you having babies?!?!?!?

My favorite part:
“He notes that the downturn in birth rates for teenagers likely reflects more widespread use of effective and long-lasting forms of contraception, perhaps due to expanded access under the Affordable Care Act.”

I’m 29. Not yet married. I don’t want children. I straight up can’t afford any. I have a damaged body from a car accident. I don’t want inexplicable pain from carrying a baby/having a c-section. I work anywhere from 9hr-12hr days. Can’t say I have time for any kids either. Some of us just aren’t cut out for kids.

When both parents have no other feasible option than to work full time, many are asking"what's the point?". Infant childcare runs upward of $20,000 per year in some areas. We have created a society of worker bees. If you have family that can help care for your children, you've got a shot at traditional family life, but if not??? I feel so badly for the young adults of today.

To be honest, the fear that they could get shot up by a crazy person at their school, or the fact that the Earth is dying off, has seriously killed my happy dream that I had for my future children.
I want a family still, but I am definitely going to wait a while yet.

It’s expensive to raise a child these days. From childcare, health insurance, college costs, yet the wages still stagnant. In addition, crazy politics, global climate etc. It’s their choice for not pro creating.

Trying to manufacture a crisis?

For those who want children, child care is too expensive, wages won't rise but housing and everything else is, and people are working 2 jobs to survive. Plus, many people have student loans and women do not get paid time off after birth.
