(LifeSiteNews) – A recent study by a German government agency shows a birth rate drop in Germany and Sweden nine months after the COVID injections were rolled out. 

The study by the Federal Institute for Population Research says that “there is a strong association between the onset of vaccination programs and the fertility decline nine months after this onset.” 

“In Germany as well as in Sweden, the vaccination campaigns with mass enrolments for a first vaccination reached its peak in April, May, and June 2021, followed by a wave of second vaccinations with its peak between May and August the same year,” the study states. 

“The implementations of these [vaccination] programmes in both Germany and Sweden coincide very well with a distinct change in fertility levels exactly nine months later,” the study reads, adding that “[t]he fertility rates remained at a reduced level during the entire first half of 2022.” 

The study data shows a significant drop in seasonally adjusted monthly Total Fertility rates (TFR), nine months after the large-scale rollout of the COVID shots. 

The seasonally adjusted monthly TFR of Germany dropped from 1.5-1.6 in 2021 to 1.3-1.4 in 2022, a decline of about 14 %. In Sweden, the corresponding TFR dropped from about 1.7 in 2021 to 1.5-1.6 in 2022, a decline of almost 10 %. 

Since the study is only analyzing the number of live births over a certain period, it is not possible to determine, based on this data alone, whether the drop in birthrates is due to a rise in miscarriages or because fewer children are being conceived. 

Furthermore, the study notes that COVID-19 or higher unemployment rates are likely not responsible for the lower birth rates. 

“There is no association of fertility trends with changes in unemployment, infection rates, or COVID-19 deaths,” the study states. 

Astonishingly, even though the data in this study suggests that getting the COVID injections may have hurt fertility, the authors do not even mention this possibility. 

Instead, they speculate that the decline in birth rates may be ascribed to “behavioral changes in reaction to societies opening up to less home-centered life circumstances than those prevailing during the pandemic.”

Two years into his presidency, Joe Biden has already instituted some of the most extreme pro-abortion and anti-family measures.

But today, the radical Left policies of the Biden administration and the Democratic-controlled Congress will be put to the test as Americans vote in the crucial 2022 midterms.

Biden and the Democratic Party have already promised that they will fight to codify Roe v. Wade into law and expand abortion, homosexuality, and transgenderism at the federal level.

Imagine what policies and legislation will be implemented if the radical Democrats are able to gain more seats in the House and Senate?

SIGN this petition and pledge to vote pro-life and pro-family TODAY! Tell Joe Biden that all 50 states are still in the fight for our culture.

President Biden has urged voters to elect pro-abortion politicians in the midterm elections, saying that “Roe is on the ballot.” He recently promised, “the first bill I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade.

Democrat candidates, such as Stacey Abrams in Georgia, have also made the promotion and extreme expansion of abortion a number one issue coming into the midterms.

A recent analysis by LifeSite journalist Raymond Wolfe reveals details of where some candidates stand on life.

Moreover, a radical leftist group has also joined a campaign to push voters to support pro-LGBT candidates. this year unveiled a massive $30 million push to prop up Democrats who can defeat Republicans and protect abortion “rights,” advance even more the “LGBTQIA+” ideology into law, and target pro-family Christians.

But with this year’s monumental Supreme Court decision, there’s reason to hope!

As of print time, 13 states have already adopted legislation banning virtually all abortions, and the issue is crucial now more than ever in state races.

This is why we must hope, pray, and act for change in our nation’s laws and culture that will defend the dignity of the unborn, the sanctity of marriage and family, and the freedom of Americans!

Will you send a message today to Joe Biden and his radically pro-abortion and anti-family administration that we have not given up in the fight for our culture?

STAND with us and tell Biden that America will have a bright future anchored on life, faith, family, and freedom. Vote pro-life and pro-family!

This explanation seems highly questionable, since Sweden, one of the two countries observed in the study, never implemented any restrictive COVID-related measures like lockdowns that would have forced citizens into a more home-centered life. 

The second explanation that the study authors offer is that couples were postponing having children because there was initially no recommendation for pregnant women to get the COVID shots in Germany. This explicit recommendation came only several months into the vaccine campaign, in September 2021. 

“The lack of initial recommendations could have propelled some prospective mothers to postpone childbearing until after getting a vaccination for themselves,” the study authors claim. 

This explanation also appears dubious, since the birth rates remained low throughout the first half of 2022, as the study authors themselves note. If it were the case that women postponed childbearing until getting the COVID injections, we would have to see birth rates rising significantly again by mid-2022. 

Other studies have shown, that COVID injections can disturb the menstrual cycle of women, and therefore at least affect fertility temporarily. 

Moreover, the fertility of men may also play a role in the decline in births. Another recent study found that male fertility is reduced for several months following Pfizer’s COVID injection. 

Several doctors, like Dr. James Thorp, have sounded the alarm because they have seen massive side effects for pregnant women due to the COVID shots, including increases in miscarriages, fetal malformation, and fetal cardiac abnormalities among others.
