Infertility rates have been and are currently on the rise:
Just to note, this post may be more women-centered. This is because one, I am a woman, and two, I have had experience with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), an ectopic pregnancy, a miscarriage, and more. All of these factors have led me to critical thinking about a process that should be natural, but is causing pain and heartache for millions of people.
Of course, I cannot write about fertility without both men and women, but if my post appears to focus more on women, that is why : )
Specifically what really made me start thinking about this was when I was diagnosed with PCOS, which often contributes to infertility. Why, as a very feminine women, do I have such high testosterone levels? I found doctors were very dismissive of anything other than "it is genetic." It certainly is, but I also found I did not develop severe PCOS symptoms until working a high stress job in leadership positions. Was my body responding to the high stress with increases in testosterone? Is that good for women?
Anyway, I could probably write an entire other post on just PCOS, but for now, I wanted to write about why "they" are killing fertility, and how they are doing it.
There is no doubt that a sick environment has led to problems with fertility for both men and women:
This NCBI medical study is frightening:
"The research is quite clear that metals and chemicals in air, water, food, and health-and-beauty aids are damaging fertility in many ways. These toxicants are causing men to experience relentlessly decreasing sperm count and function while women are suffering progressively worse anovulation, impaired implantation, and loss of fetal viability."
What is truly sad about this is that it is so out of our control. No matter how healthy or "organic" we eat, we cannot avoid these toxins. They are all around us.
As a side note, PCOS often causes anovulation, something I have experienced.
This one may seem obvious, but buying healthy, affordable food is difficult. Having time to make those meals is even more difficult.
The rise in obesity, especially in women, has contributed to the rise in infertility:
I empathize deeply with women, here. While I absolutely believe we have control of our weight, women are taking on stress and work like never before in history. Dropping weight in this current climate is more difficult than ever, and anyone who has experienced extra weight, especially as a woman, can vouch for this.
However, this leads to my next point.
When I asked my doctor if stress could be contributing to my PCOS, he looked at me like I was crazy. But medical research shows, there is definitely a correlation:
Chronic stress also raises obesity risks:
Stress releases cortisol, which impacts your metabolic system and contributes to obesity. That is very simplified, but if you are interested, here is a deeper link:
What person is not stressed today? In fact, I am pregnant right now, and I cannot believe any feminist movement has advocated for working while pregnant...
*Feminism and Maternity *
I constantly hear about abortion rights in feminist circles, but I almost never hear about maternal rights.
I am currently pregnant and sick all of the time. Tired all of the time. I feel absolutely miserable, and most women feel this way throughout pregnancy. The glamorous depictions of pregnancy in Hollywood are a complete joke. While some women report no symptoms, most do:
The point is that somehow, with all these women's rights movements, we lost a lot of maternal rights.
Many women are petrified of maternal leave hurting their careers:
I'll talk more about this point in a minute.
In the US specifically, we have one of the worst overarching policies for maternity leave:
So many women are expected to put their pregnancies and health in danger while working, often up until the day of labor (I will probably be!).
We hear so much about the availability of abortion clinics, but nothing about helping and protecting women during pregnancy. No wonder so many women, no matter their age or marital status, are petrified of getting pregnant. There is so much at stake.
Because most women do have careers, many simply wait longer. This is an action I took, but now that I reflect, I realized a problem.
Waiting longer, especially after 30 as many women do, increases infertility rates:
Sure, it is not all women, but many women simply do not think about this. Most of us naively assume we will be popping out babies even into our 30s. I mean, that is what Hollywood tells us right?
Plus, who knows the side effects of all that birth control? Sure, they say it is perfectly safe, but after two friends suffering from major blood clots related to birth control use, I'm not so sure...
Need I say more? Having and raising a baby in the US is more expensive than ever:
These type of risks lead me to my next point.
The perception of having a baby is no longer touted as wonderful and magical (at least not as much as it used to be), but when did this change? In the past, having a baby soon after marriage was just expected and usually celebrated. What happened?
1) Childfree/misanthropy movements: The childfree lifestyle is on the rise:
Head over to /r/childfree and see just how many people do not really want children, but actually hate them.
I also stumbled upon /r/antinatalism, which basically is the philosophy that subjecting someone to this life is a horrid thing to do. And I mean, their views are not invalid, per se.
Still, the point is there seems to be a general rise in misanthropy. Not only do humans hate other humans, but they especially hate the tiny creatures that will become adults one day.
Babies are often viewed as parasites, only here to suck resources, money, and do terrible things. I'm not saying I agree, but I am saying this view, in general, is on the rise.
I completely understand why some are hesitant to bring a child into this world, but I certainly believe these views have been purposely promoted. Why?
2) "Not Our Children": In Celine Dion's gender neutral kids' clothing commercial, she says it is not "your" child...it is now "our" children:
If you have read "Brave New World," part of the premise is basically the state/government completely controls fertility and owns children. The government is the family.
Before they can get people to this point, they first have to do two things:
1) Make people lose attachment/likability of children
2) Increase infertility/Make people stop wanting to have children.
There are so many reasons NOT to have a child, right? Genetic abnormalities, expenses, education, etc. I mean, what if the government just took control of it and made a perfect eugenic system?
And remember, "Brave New World" was not just a warning, it was a plan. If you'd like to know more about Aldous Huxley, ask me in the comments.
3) Sex Positivity: Check out my post on sex positivity for a longer expansion on this topic. Views on sex, which used to be mostly tied to reproduction and fertility, are now mostly associated with lust.
The bottom line is sex is now seen solely for pleasure. Any view on sex as a reproductive act is seen as "old-fashioned."
4) Sex Education: The fear of pregnancy is instilled in us through sex education, and I am not saying that is necessarily wrong.
However, after leaving a sex ed. class, I basically thought having a child was the worst possible thing that could have ever happened to me.
And I get it, it would have interfered with my career and all that.
But that subconscious fear now is always tied with pregnancy in the back of our minds, and probably purposefully.
4) Glorification of Abortion: I challenge you to visit any women's sub, and you will find any critical talk of abortion is absolutely not allowed.
It is one thing to believe abortion should be a right. It is another to act as though it is equivalent to women's empowerment:
Today, having a baby is not viewed as empowering. Getting rid of one is, though.
So, what's the conspiracy?
There are so many elements I am not able to capture because it will honestly turn into a book, but I'm hoping that if this post is not as downvoted as I think it will be, that there will be more discussion in the comments of elements I have forgotten.
The conspiracy is that all of this is intentional. This increase in infertility is not accidental, and part of a depopulation agenda for their NWO.
Have you ever questioned why the elite are constantly talking about about depopulation and lack of resources, but these .00001% elites have more than enough resources for the whole planet. It is about control.
What really nobody sees behind all this, though, is the emotional toll.
Personally, and this is just my view, something is truly empty in a society that has a growing hatred of life itself.
So many do not want children because they are messy. And sometimes annoying. And they are always around. And they make mistakes. And they are not perfect.
Unfortunately, I feel like we are missing out on the beauty of that messiness. We want everything to be so perfect, even our children, that we are no longer taking risks or living life, or now, even allowing life itself.
