Earlier this year a flurry of news reports proclaimed that Germany’s population had reached 83 million – the highest in the country’s history.
This occurred even though Germany’s birth rate has been amongst the lowest in Europe for half a lifetime.
Since 1975 its birth rate has been well below replacement levels and, as a result, the population of native Germans will both decline and age rapidly over the next half a lifetime.
So how does a nation with an ageing and diminishing population reach record population levels?
The answer is simple: with someone else’s babies.
Remember these headlines?
Number of Refugees to Europe Surges to Record 1.3 Million in 2015
A record 1.3 million migrants applied for asylum in the 28 member states of the European Union, Norway and Switzerland in 2015 – nearly double the previous high water mark of roughly 700,000 that was set in 1992 after the fall of the Iron Curtain and the collapse of the Soviet Union, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from Eurostat, the European Union’s statistical agency.
From President Angela Merkel down the Germans have outsourced reproduction to others. So much so, that people are now Germany’s biggest and most required import.
Indeed, this is how the International Monetary Fund spun Germany’s requirement for ‘human resources’ just under a year ago:
“The projected decline in the labour force due to ageing after 2020 calls for measures to boost labour supply in the medium term. Additional policies to integrate the current wave of refugees into the labour market, to broaden opportunities for full-time employment of women, and to extend working lives, would be important in this regard.
These reforms would not only counter the projected growth decline in the medium term but also stimulate private consumption and investment in the short term.”
In other words, if Germany wants to keep its economy after all the current Germans have spent everything on themselves before collectively kicking the bucket at the end of the post-sexual revolution orgy, then it will need workers and consumers.
And they don’t drop down each time the stork flies by. As Germany literally screws itself to death it’s more than ironic that this fact of life needs explaining.
Germany’s future will belong to those who are there to live in it. Increasingly, these people will be Islamic. They are there because the Germans have aborted their own future off and then mortgaged everything else to millions of Muslims walking across the border.
And they were always going to come. They aren’t in Germany because of the Syrian civil war. They’re in Germany because a human vacuum has been created by the nation’s decision to prioritise instant gratification over, not just the next generation, but any further generation.
That’s what Islam has to do with abortion. The former fills the whole left by the latter. It has not gone unnoticed. In fact, just this week the Turkish President, Recep Erdogan, has urged Muslims in Europe to have at least five children:
“Go live in better neighbourhoods. Drive the best cars. Live in the best houses. Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you.”
If you are concerned about the growth of Islam in the West, then you need to come to grips with this. Australia, like the rest of the Western world, is headed in the same direction. It will not be able to withstand Islam in the long run if it is relying on Islamic families to provide the next generation.
In other words, the arrival of Islam in the West is not the problem. It is the symptom of a deeper problem of our own making. It is here because of our own bad habits.
And killing off the next generation is one hell of a bad habit.
Of course, anyone who spends more than a few moments truthfully examining what happens during an abortion knows that abortion is a moral failure. Every single abortion results in the death of living human being and it always occurs because those involved in it prioritise fear over love.
I’m not denying for a second that love is always an easy choice to make. I’m not denying for a second that an unmarried uni student with a deadbeat boyfriend might find the thought of pregnancy tremendously difficult.
But that’s just the problem with evil. It often is the easy choice. So next time you see a single mother give her a hand: she might not be perfect but she is certainly courageous and she’s investing far more in the future than the childless President of Germany.
Australia might not be as far down the road to destruction as Germany. But we are still heading down that road.
And that leaves us with two unpalatable conclusions.
Firstly, when it comes to condemning the Islamic State, we’re all quick to join in. It is hard finding reliable casualty figures for its atrocities but one report from the University of Maryland estimated that the Islamic State was responsible for 33,000 deaths between 2012 and 2015.
In contrast, about 80,000 to 100,000 children are aborted in Australia. Every year.
In Queensland, a child is born alive after an abortion about every ten days. And then it is left to die as well.
The Islamic State is evil. But our nation has its own confessions to make.
Secondly, if morality is not your thing, then there are still plenty of reasons why it is clear that abortion is not in the national interest. Just look at Germany where the social, demographic and economic impacts of abortion mean that there might not be any national interest left at all that can be remotely described as ‘German’.
Last week US Republican Steve King was labelled a racist for proclaiming the truth: we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.
He’s absolutely right. To keep Western civilisation going we need to regain the confidence to have our own children again. If we can’t do that, Islam will be the least of our problems…
