It is no secret that the Democrats almost unanimously support abortion. They consider it health care. In many states the Democrats are fighting for abortion rights right up until the delivery of the baby. The Democrats are also the party of illegal immigration. They are entirely comfortable with the idea of letting people just come here and become citizens. Well, Senator Schumer just brought those two ideas together.
On Wednesday, NewsMax reported the following:
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Wednesday that America needs new immigrants “now more than ever” to combat declining reproduction rates and the lowest population growth in the country’s history.
“Now more than ever, we’re short of workers. We have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to,” Schumer said during a press conference Wednesday. “The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants. The ‘Dreamers,’ and all of them.”
He said the “ultimate goal” is to help not only the Dreamers, but to “get a path to citizenship for all 11 million [illegal immigrants].”
Has it occurred to the Senator that the low population growth might be somewhat related to the fact that we are aborting the future generations.
Live Action reported the following in June 2022:
- Abortions in 2020 (930,160) showed an increase of nearly 8% from 2017 — an increase of 67,840 lives lost.
- The abortion rate in 2020 (abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44) climbed by 7% (from 13.5 in 2017 to 14.4 in 2020).
- The abortion increase was accompanied by a 6% decline in births between 2017 and 2020.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that abortion might be one factor in
America’s declining reproduction rate.
