Experts believe there is a mix of reasons: a decline in contraceptive use, a drop in access to abortion, poor education and poverty.Yep. Folks who have children are either poor, uneducated, too stupid to use contraceptives, or unable to find an abortion. There you have it. Oh, and some folks just like children for cultural reasons. This may be the case with the backward cultures of the Hispanics and middle Americans. A few people even think an increase in the birth rate might be a good thing. But they are mistaken.
But the higher fertility rate isn't all good. Last month, theI blame Bush. reported that America's teen birth rate rose for the first time in 15 years.
