GOOD OR BAD? U.S. pregnancy rate falls to 12-year low. “It has been suggested that the declining economy, beginning in 2007, has likely played a role in the decreased rates for women under age 40.”
“The pregnancy rate does not directly correlate with the nation’s birth rate. Of the estimated 6.4 million pregnancies in 2009, more than 4.1 million resulted in live births and about 1 million in deaths, the CDC said. There were also nearly 1.2 million abortions.”
SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!
