Everyone knows the birthrate is below replacement numbers.
Young people just aren't having kids like they used to, and there aren't that many young people to begin with these days.
Ending Roe v. Wade is certainly doing its part.
But let's not overlook birth control pills in this conversation.
Obamacare made birth control pills free under every insurance plan, and the birth rate plummeted accordingly.
But according to the FDA, hope is not lost because thousands of women have been taking faulty birth control pills over the last year.
That's right, Tydemy birth control pills apparently did not contain enough ascorbic acid to keep them shelf-stable.
Pills distributed between June 2022 and May 2023 have been recalled because they may not prevent pregnancy. That's about 350,000 tablets.
The company recommends women taking the pills continue their doses until they are able to meet with the doctor to change prescriptions, and that might be enough.
But don't be surprised if you end up with a little bundle of joy along the way.
