The U.S. ranks 11th in contraception

According to the World Health Organization, the United States is tied for eleventh (with Paraguay) in terms of the percentage of women of reproductive age (or their partners) who use contraception. China ranks first.

    that helps explain how China is able to keep their population below 1.5 billion

    This makes no sense… China is so overpopulated that they have to regulate births.

    If so many people used contraceptives in China then we wouldn’t see a population issue.

    The data don’t say when China began making contraception so widely available and socially acceptable. If you take a look at this link: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/2054rank.html, you’ll see that China currently has a lower birthrate than the United States.

    I have no doubt this is true… but remember that China “regulates” births and the United States doesn’t.

    I do believe that the US has alarming problems with sex and that something needs to be done about it. I don’t think anyone dares do anything though since they would claim that whatever is done is a violation of “constitutional rights’.”
