Demographic Devastation: Italy’s Birth Rate Drops To 150 Year Low

–  Demographic Devastation: Italy’s Birth Rate Drops To 150 Year Low (ZeroHedge, May 12, 2015):

Italian women would “like to have more [children], but the conditions just aren’t good enough,” laments one new mother as CBS News reports, official figures show that in 2014 there were fewer babies born in Italy than at any time since 1861. “Nowadays people don’t want to raise their child in poverty,” but Pope Francis had a different opinion, as The Guardian reported, “a society with a greedy generation, that doesn’t want to surround itself with children, that considers them above all worrisome, a weight, a risk, is a depressed society.

  1. This tells me that Americans could learn from Italians. It is unkind and brutal to bring children into a world of insecurity and poverty. Congratulations to the Italian people…….others could benefit by their example.
