Fewer Babies Being Born in the Golden State

CALIFORNIA (KTLA) — People living in the Golden State are having fewer births.

According to state public health records, the number of babies born in California each year has been dropping steadily since 2007.

Records also show that before 2007, there were years of statewide decrease in births.

Analysts believe there are several factors driving down the numbers, including the uncertain finances of young couples, which may lead them to delay having children.

    That is because who can afford to raise a kid and live in this state when they keep raising taxes. That is why we are moving to the east coast and out of California to North Carolina where rent is cheaper and we can have a life and not live to work here

    Are you kidding me? I see illegal aliens pushing their anchor babies in strollers all over town all day long. This isn't an accurate census I assure you.

      Let me correct you in one thing, the fault is this economy. It's not the illegals fault, it's not the Gay's fault, it's this financial crisis we're all in. Who can truly afford a child in these times, and be honest with yourself. No one can. Why bring a child into this world if you can financially guarantee it a good future?
