Is the fact that fertility rates are falling around the world a good thing? According to the Economist, the answer is yes. Falling birth rates in certain parts of the world are no surprise.

On today’s program, Dr. Mohler notes the danger and moral heinousness of regulating birth rates in any form. Children are a gift from the Lord. To give them up for the sake of economic gain is morally repulsive.
