Non-Profit President Responds to CNBC Article

DALLAS, Dec. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jake Novak of CNBC recently wrote an article about America's need for more babies and the effect the declining birthrate has on the economy. He claims property taxes, government welfare programs, regulations, and government greed discourage families from having more children and being able to comfortably take care of larger families. Brian Fisher, Co-Founder and President of Dallas-based Online for Life, thinks otherwise.

"The article ignores the largest impact on the American birth rate and the common sense solution. Americans abort approximately 1.2 million children each year, or ¼ of all pregnancies," said Fisher. He notes that Novak was right in stating that America needs more babies but shows that abortion actually hurts the economy.

Fisher referenced a study conducted in 2007 that concluded that the tens of millions of aborted children have in fact, had a negative if not debilitating impact on the US economy. The study calculated the loss of GDP according to then 54 million aborted children, and concluded that the American economy has lost over $37 trillion dollars of GDP due to elective abortion.

Fisher concludes by saying "Mr. Novak is correct- children are our most precious resource. Not only economically, but socially, culturally, and spiritually. And while it's easy to point the finger at government and corporate America as the reason why the American birth rate is low, the reality is we continue to kill our most precious asset – our children – by the millions simply because they don't suit our utilitarian whimsies."
