Heroic News: “Women are having fewer kids, demographers are confused” plus 2 more


U.S. fertility is not recovering from the financial crisis — and demographers aren’t sure why. The fertility rate fell to a record low 62.9 births per 1,000 women aged 15-44 in 2013, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. The total number of births, at 3.96 million, inched up by a mere 4,000 from 2012, the first increase since the financial crisis.
Unfortunately, in the pro-life news business, there is so much bad news. Let’s face it, abortion isn’t something fun — it kills babies, it kills and injures women, it devastates families and destroys society.
There are medical miracles and then there are simply miracles. Karen and Brian Wollman were told that their third child would be stillborn. And while their son was born alive, he was never expected to live. They prepared for his funeral, but this little boy wasn’t giving up without a fight.
