Fertility has been falling in all Nordic countries. At the lower end, the total fertility rate fell to 1.43 percent in Finland in 2018, leaving scientists and politicians scratching their heads.

It probably hasn't helped that "motherhood" has been scorned and devalued as some sort of slavery by feminists and leftists.

Nordic countries are all anti-family and anti-marriage.

So why is this result a surprise?

A lot of career minded women are choosing not to have children because once a woman goes out on her first maternity leave, she will never be looked at the same way by management.

According to whom?

They are a very civilized society. It's pretty easy to see demographically, the the more advanced a society is, the lower its birthrate. The highest birthrates are in third world countries and they are the poorest. Advanced societies don't breed beyond their means.

FTA:
Germany has had encouraging results by introducing more generous parental-leave laws and rules to encourage fathers to take time off. Although there are still not enough nursery spots for all, the number of children under three enrolled in nurseries rose from 286,000 to 762,000 between 2006 and 2017.

Funny how the 'capitalists' forget that people respond to incentives. If you want women to have more babies, give them incentives like maternity leave and pay and low cost daycare.

Is anti-natalist propaganda as strong in Scandinavia as it is here stateside? As far as I'm aware, most of Europe and definitely huwhites in the divided states of America are under heavy propaganda attack to either not have babies because muh environment, or to miscegenate. Middle-easterners and africans are free to breed like rabbits and overwhelm the West, though, despite the fact that it will objectively increase the carbon footprint of these groups.
I have a solution: stop feeding these people, let them fend for themselves, and definitely don't bring them into Western lifestyles with guarantees of free everything forever.

Isn't this Planned Parenthood's specialty?

btw...Have you ever seen them advocating and encouraging pregnancy?

It was the tally of how many $100,000.00 bills throughout childhood that parents pay to raise kids that got to me.

I took my elders advice and got the housecat from wonderville.

It seems that once someone can grow thick skin against the Proof-Breed-Peer-Pressure, we're home free.

So what if Washington fatcats got paid off by religion to get tough on abortion. Our too-big-to-fail economy is an abortion.

This is worse than that. You are going into negative population growth. Negative population growth would be a great thing for India, for example... but when you haven't got enough people to begin with, you'll be left with a ton of old people with less and less young people taking their place.

Watch your economy crash... or open the floodgates of immigration and lose whatever was left of your culture and history.

This is the thread for racists and angry white dudes. One of these losers even inserted the word miscegnate. This is the place to reveal your worst. And they don't disappoint.

The Scandanavian countries have generous parental-leave laws yet are reproducing well below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per family.

When a welfare state needs slight population growth in order to fund all of those goodies it has to import warm bodies to make it all work and those warm bodies, for the most part, are not assimilating.

Take this low birth rate,
add secular humanistic ideals that dismiss God,
and you have a recipe for a religion with high birth rates and a philosophy with a "takeover" mindset. That is Islam.

Watch and see.

It rarely happens, but Tremain was spot on in #9..

Nordics were the first to become complete beta males in response to WWII. From Vikings to soy boys, it is sad really. The only real men remaining in the countries are the Muslim immigrants they let in - which is why none of the native Nordics stand up to them and they run wild.

Agreed. It was an excellent post and I flagged it NW.

It's worth noting that science agrees - www.google.com

Thank you.

There is a line in the Koran... "I made you different people so you could learn from (but not despise) each other".

I, at least, take to mean that different cultures should be encouraged. Nothing wrong with a "melting pot" culture like the US has, but some differences are a good thing sometimes.

If everyone was the same, we won't be able to pick up new stuff every now and then. At least not at the speed we do these days.

So am I pro-immigration or anti-immigration?

I am anti-immigration ABSOLUTELY.

I mean illegal immigration... everyone else can pay through their nose like I did.

A real world example:

Pakistan threw open it's doors to the Afghans in the 80s.

They turned Pakistan into hell on earth.

Kidnappings, bombing, crime, prostitution, organized crime .... Pakistan is recovering only NOW that they have created a border wall.

Everyone hates Afghans now... they are a violent people and quite dumb and prone to anger. See how that Afghan guy shot up that gay nightclub in Florida and killed over 50 people?

But some American bleeding hearts want all kinds of trash coming over to America. Why? I have no idea why.

So my point is, if your women are too much into whoring around to make a stable nuclear family structure to bring up a couple or more kids.... be prepared to lose your identity.

Because that's the only way your economy will survive.
