13 Abortions for Every
10 Live Births in Russia

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

This week Russian president Vladimir Putin brought Boyz II Men to Moscow to "hopefully [give] Russian men some inspiration ahead of St. Valentine´s Day," according to the Moscow Times. That is, Putin brought the music group to town to encourage love-making, and, he hopes, baby-making to offset Russia´s demographic disaster. But, according to statistics in a new book by Jonathan V. Last, it might have been a wiser move for Putin bring in a pro-life group instead. The book is titled What to Expect When No One’s Expecting.

Russia is in a demographic death spiral. Not only are they aborting, but the public health in Russia is not good. The average life expectancy for a Russian man is 59.

Are you sure you didn´t mean "the blue states"... for it is the liberal sacrament today, along with Gay marriage.

Øvomit is really mad today.

He is demanding that his HHS secretary find a way to have us beat this record. He wants at least 15 abortions for every 10 live births in the Soviet Socialist States of Amerikkka.

20 would make him so much happier...

Teach those darn Russians to be less moral and more evil than us!!!

Don´t worry about a drop in the USAs population. For despite the abortions the United States has the population growth of a third world country. With all of the increase secondary to immigration, almost all of which from 3rd world nations. If you don´t have a third world country, import one. Jeez.

Somebody double-check my math here, but I think the abortion rate is worse in the Bronx, where the abortion rate is 67 percent of all pregnancies, which works out to 67 abortions per 33 live births, which is approx. 20 abortions for every 10 life births.

Way to go, Bronx.

And that doesn´t count the after-intercourse pills they hand out for free to NYC high-school girls. I read about that here http://tinyurl.com/NYC-Plan-B

Over 12,000 of these after-intercourse pills given to underage girls per year without parental consent. How about creating a perfect environment for pedophiles.

"13 Abortions for Every 10 Live Births in Russia"

According to Wikipedia, "Russia had the highest number of abortions per woman of child-bearing age in the world according to UN data of 2004." The average number of abortions for Russian women ranges anywhere from 6 -12 in their lifetimes.

#5, in point of fact, the total fertility rate of the USA is 2.07, which is very nearly, but not quite, the replacement level. In other words, we´re not quite up to Zero Population Growth.

If you subtract immigrants and first generation children of immigrants, we´d be way down at something like 1.6 . In oher words, we´d be in a state of slo-mo demographic decline, like most of Europe.

The only thing that can "save" Russia demographically would be invasion by the "stan" people --- Muslims --- from the south-central Asia, and by China into the Russian Far East. And of course, that won´t save "Russia": it´s just re-populate, with other peoples, the land-mass-that-used-to-be-Russia.

What will "save" the USA? Fill in the blank.

The lack of desire on the part of native born Americans to reporduce is one reason we attract immigrants, legal and illegal, to make up for the lack of new workers. It also means the political impact of the immigrants is greater.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy.

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued. The gun was fired during the struggle, but police

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room. In a heart-wrenching scene, one woman screamed in sorrow as she was dragged

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
