Major Causes of Infertility: Sexually Transmitted Infection, Postponement of Childbearing

LONDON, August 5, 2003 ( - The British Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) reports today that the director of a London fertility clinic has argued that almost all fertility problems are preventable.  Professor Gedis Grudzinskas of the Bridge Centre has stated that childlessness could be avoided if women married younger and remained with the same partner. He stressed the need to educate women about the two major risks to fertility - sexually transmitted infection and the postponement of childbearing. “We have to start in schools,” he said. “There is nothing we can do for the generation who are in their late 30s. We have got to educate schoolgirls to let them know that their fertility declines in their 30s.”

Interestingly, it would seem that de-populationists must be quietly very happy with the sterility caused by late marriage and disease-causing sexual “freedom” which they have been strenuously advocating.
