Ruth Speaks Out

This blog is maintained by the Ruth Institute. It provides a place for our Circle of Experts to express themselves. This is where the scholars, experts, students and followers of the Ruth Institute engage in constructive dialogue about the issues surrounding the Sexual Revolution.

Demographic Winter Fact Sheet

Posted on Thursday, July 09, 2020

The Ruth Institute is hosting its Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, and you're invited to join us virtually!

Ever wonder how declining birthrates worldwide are impacting us? The Summit’s class on the Demographic Winter will open your eyes. These and other facts about population control will be discussed:
  • For the first time in modern history, the world’s population is expected to stop growing by the end of the century
  • In Italy, there are 67 live births for every 100 deaths
  • Spain’s fertility rate is 1.33 (Replacement fertility is 2.1)
  • Japan’s phenomenon of older people dying alone is so common they have a specific term for it: "kodokushi” (lonely death)
  • In 2017, Russia’s population declined by 134,000
  • The US Birthrate fell in 2018, for the fourth consecutive year
  • The US average number of children per woman is under 2
  • Between 2020 and 2100, 90 countries are expected to lose population, including two-thirds of all countries in Europe
  • Africa is the only region in the world expected to experience strong population growth for the rest of the century

For this and many other presentations, including surviving abuse, pornography, and leaving the LGBT lifestyle, join us July 17 and 18 with a Virtual Conference Pass.
