US birth rates drop sharply, may plummet to lowest levels ever: Report

By Brandon Showalter - Posted at the Christian Post:

New research reveals that fertility rates in the United States have declined significantly and could fall to their lowest rates ever.

The study, "Declining Fertility in America," which was released this week by the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C., shows that birth rates have fallen in America to one of the lowest recorded levels of population growth, and could drop even further to record low levels.

"This decline is led by falling birth rates for women under 30, but in recent years, even women in their 30s have seen falling birth rates. These declines will almost certainly result in millennial women ultimately having fewer children than previous generations had," the report's author, Lyman Stone, explains in the executive summary.
