Birth crisis: Seven in 10 women aged 35 do not have children
24 June 2018 @ 21:02

SEVEN in 10 women in Spain aged 35 do not have children, says the Spanish Fertility Society (SEF), warning that the government needs to put 'urgent measures' in place to encourage motherhood and increase the birth rate.

The current average age for a first-time mother is 32.1 years – up from 32 a year ago – and one in five women who have their first baby is aged over 40.

Whilst this means fertility clinics across the country are busy, it also means many women will never have children at all since, by the time they are in stable work with a home of their own, a long-term partner and savings behind them, they will be leaving it too late. Some opt to freeze their eggs which, at an average price of €2,000, is much lower than in the UK and elsewhere in northern Europe, but still out of the reach of women on a typical salary.

This is why the Globalists decided that the answer was replacement immigration. To them it solved low birth rates in European countries, diluted the conception of "my country" and provided cheap non unionised labour. Of course it has gone horribly wrong on many fronts.
