The American Left told these women that there are no consequences to decisions.
I don’t feel sorry for these withering feminists.
Just wait until they reach their 60’s and nobody wants them.
I disagree. I do feel sorry for them and for this country for the loss we all experience for those Americans who should have been born. Of course I am quite sure that many of them would spurn my sympathy in public, although embrace it in private.
About 20% of women hitting 45 today have never had children, instead of the standard 10% childless. About 10-15% only had one child. The rest had two or more, giving us a total fertility rate of 1.8.
If feminists didn’t succeed in passing on their extreme views, just the 10% that normally had children but didn’t among the Baby Boomers is replaced by girls who have 1-3 kids - and we’ll be back to domestic replacement level fertility.
But the impact on fertility makes it clear a lot of women did buy the “career first, then maybe marriage and kids” but never did have the kids.
