Producing American Cities with Few Children
Nena Arias | August 5, 2019“So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” (Matthew 18:14)
At the rate of 1.02 million abortions in the United States annually and 61.5 million and counting since 1973 since the infamous Roe v. Wade ruling, is it any wonder that abortion is producing American cities with few children.
For more than a century and a half, America has been on a detour from its original foundation which was based more on the biblical principles than it is now. Sadly, America is showing all the symptoms of all the pagan nations in history due to the transfer of its worship at the altar of hedonism (pursuit of sensual pleasure) and other idols. It does not make me happy to say that, but we must face our reality.
America is experiencing her way back up to a stronger economy but despite an economic boom in our cities, America is missing something very precious, an entire generation of actual births. In fact, if current trends continue, the future of American cities will be almost virtually childless except for immigrant children. It is said that one out of every four women in America has had an abortion.
The New York Post reports that New York City’s population shrank last year, for the first time in forty years. The number of babies born has declined by nine percent. In Manhattan, it’s dropped 15 percent. At this rate, the city’s infant population will be half in thirty years.
The decrease in births is mostly due to abortion on demand. Abortion has nothing to do with “better health for women” but it does mean that people are choosing to please themselves and opt to use abortion for their convenience above their natural love for their children. The lie that abortion is an option as a contraceptive has yet to be debunked in the minds of this present generation.
There is no doubt that the population is dropping among natural born Americans, while the population due to immigration continues to increase. Also, according to U.S. Census and American Community Survey data, white college graduates without kids have increased by 20 percent in America’s urban centers since 2000, while families with kids have fled. They report that cities once had people of all ages and stages in life but all that is now changing.
This is the sort of environment in which only the young and childless can thrive. Companies increasingly demand a set of life choices that delay marriage and family in favor of intense, high-paying jobs that mostly go to support the lifestyles of adults. In other words, we’re swapping children for money.
These major changes will only create cities without children. This is the great impact that hedonism is having on our culture and our civilization. This tragedy is upon us because we are below the survival birth rate already. America has the lowest birth rate in 32 years. The drop could force changes about how the country will look with an older population and fewer young workers to sustain key social systems. The forecast doesn’t look very promising.
With political liberal policies increasing, city governments can do little to help reverse or at least slow the process of creating childless cities. The true blame should be placed on a culture that worships the wrong things. It is no coincidence that more and more people are having a spiritual falling out with God and it is showing in our modern pagan moral climate.
Without a doubt, countries who kill their children by abortion surely have a lot to answer for. We here in the West are only deceiving ourselves if we think our false gods will deliver a happier life for us. The truth is we are self-destructing because what we sow is what we will reap.“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
