liberals aren't having enough babies

According to a number of sources, and most recently, THIS ARTICLE IN USAToday, we progressive types aren't reproducing fast enough, while the Republicans and particularly the Republican Mormons continue to go forth and multiply like crazy.

At least I'm doing my part to keep up our liberal ranks... In fact, my whole family is. We're a rare breed of fertile, highly procreative, southern liberalistas.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't the gap in conservative versus liberal births be that the liberal families like to get pregnant and have late-term abortions out of political protest?

Oh, yeah, liberal families like to get pregnant and have late-term abortions! LOL! What an idiot! And do "families" have abortions? Lord gawd, you don't even make sense...but most conservatives don't.

Do you come out from under that rock only once every seven years or what?

Dear anonymous
Boy are you smart!
That is exactly the reason, we enjoy killing babies! Did your religious leader tell you that or your president?

Maybe because many liberals are not religious fanatics and do not procreate as a dictate from their organized religious leaders.

Well...not pregnant yet. But would like to be :-)

So yeah, I do have babies on the brain a bit lately....

I'm sure abortion is part of the difference. Women are often on birth control from say, 16 to 45. That's a lot of years, and even with perfect use, contraceptives fail. I would assume that liberals would be more likely to abort an unexpected pregnancy than conservatives. I'm sure people change their minds both ways, though. It's hard to know how you'd really act before you're actually in the situation.

I think it will be interesting to see how the birth difference plays out a few decades from now. The growing Anglican schism is a good example of the same situation. The conservative African Anglicans now outnumber the liberal European and American ones, and they're using their numbers to try and call a halt to changes that they strongly disagree with.

Some felt that the Pope's recent quotation might have been a comment in that regard. The Byzantines were overrun by the Muslims in their time. In Europe, where the birth rate is half the rate of America, Muslims quickly gaining in percentage of the population while not assimilating culturally. Berlin has more Turks than Istanbul. As in Christianity, the moderate Muslims have a much lower birthrate than the radical conservatives, because the moderates are more likely to assimilate Western culture.

Well, I've certainly done my part and may not be finished yet--but perhaps you wouldn't consider a pro-life Democrat a Liberal?

Seriously, though, it is hard to catch up to the Duggers.

We've got 3 of the cutest little commie pinkos of our own. My wife is busy indoctrinating them as I type this.
