Pill creator regrets population decline
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--A chemist who led to the invention of the birth control pill says he regrets the demographic catastrophe that has resulted from people using the contraceptive device to separate reproduction from sexuality.

Carl Djerassi, the 85-year-old Austrian chemist who was one of three whose formulation of synthetic hormones paved the way for the pill, wrote an opinion piece in the Austrian newspaper Der Standard lamenting the way the pill has been used.

Austria's population now includes more people over age 65 than under 15, and Djerassi said the country soon will face an "impossible situation" as the working class becomes too small to support the needs of senior citizens. Each family in Austria needs to produce three children to maintain population levels, he said, but on average couples have 1.4 children. ...

That Guardian article makes a good point: birth control has long predated contraceptive pharmaceuticals. Al Mohler et al. need to read more widely here. The French, for example, practiced more traditional birth control, like Onan's in Genesis, long before Djerassi's "Antibabypille."

And the condom is by no means a recent invention. If small family size is considered desirable in a culture (even a Catholic one), the method or technology of contraception will follow. The Pill is merely a more convenient form.

Djerassi has responded to this article's report on his original German-language article (published in Der Standard) by saying it misinterprets his statements. Not speaking German, I can't opine on that.

Maybe he should write a letter to House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who said that abortions (and also birth control pills, I guess) lead to greater prosperity.
Of course, the real issue is culture. Western culture exalts pleasure and families are seen in a negative light. Just try to find a happy family on TV programs, or in movies.
Even Protestant churches accepted the birth control usage when it came out, and, as a result, they have become more "seeker sensitive" in looking to give more pleasures (choose your favorite music, coffee, age-specific activities, etc) to church goers. And their divorce rate is not much different than the non-church population's divorce rate.
Also remember that Obama was elected with support from young Christians who wanted to keep the abortion option open for themselves---they could care less about other people's babies having to die---they just wanted to preserve their own right.
Even the Catholic Church said nothing against Obama because they were more concerned about getting govt. contracts (look up Catholic Charities in your local govt budget).

The problem is that when Austria gets more immigration. it's likely to be muslim folk. They are increasing their birth rates.
