Going back to original post, hasn't the latest outcry been "If you can't afford kids, don't have them!"
Yeah, but it usually works the other way around - people who can afford them decide to have fewer/no kids.

It means that we're having fewer kids and that the only way to keep our economies going is by more immigration.

Women have careers and less time for babies. Medicine is better so women can wait longer and have fewer kids. Sperm rates are decreasing in many areas too.

The issue isn't really that there won't be enough people - it's that there won't be enough of the right "kind" of people (read, white Christians) to sustain what the Pilgrims started a few hundred years ago.
Well, people aren't exactly subjugating their libidos to political will, are they?
