birth rates

Sir: Interesting though Hamish McRae's article about the falling birth rates in the West was, I find it extraordinary that intelligent men such as he are still unable to grasp the basic reason.

It has absolutely nothing to do with "a vote of no confidence in the future". It has everything to do with the fact that it is finally almost acceptable for women to choose not to give birth - and not to be seen as some sort of freak for making that choice.
