The answer? It appears to be millions! I recently read an article written by a fertility doctor who was amazed at the level of misinformation that many of his clients had about their ability to conceive a child. Most were literally shocked to discover that they were unable to get pregnant after 40.
How could they be so misinformed?
Well, once again, this delusion is another symptom of the misguided information promulgated by radical, second-wave feminism.
Feminism encourages young women to pursue a “career” and, at the same time, it deliberately discourages young women from marrying, and having children in order to accomplish this, “more fulfilling” “career” goal.
And the reason is? Radical feminists abhor Christian men (and so, marriage) and they have no use for children (obvious in their support of abortion, contraception, etc.) and these two fundamental precepts of feminism are the basis upon which they created their twisted ideology. And these virulent anti-Christian, anti-men and anti-children undertones are the underlying themes that drive all of their efforts.
So, of course, the “sisterhood” behave accordingly.
Unfortunately, this radical ideology is easily pressed upon young college women, who were brainwashed to become radical, “career-oriented” feminists as youngsters, by feminist academia, and the entertainment industry, and as such, are easily swayed further towards a completely feminist lifestyle defined by “career.”
But, eventually reality, and biology, comes home to roost. Most women discover, that despite the rants of radical feminism, they want to marry and have children!
But, unfortunately, by the time they admit this to themselves, for many, they find they are nearly undateable and worse, too old to have children.
So, what’s left of their illustrious feminist lifestyle? A 40-year-old, single woman with a “career” that’s going nowhere. YUK.
If this woman is very, VERY lucky, she may find a husband at that age, and due to radical, third-wave feminism’s focus on physical beauty, many older women still believe that their external youthfulness is translated to their biology as well. And, as a result, they believe they will all be able to have their babies in their 40s. NOT SO!
Unfortunately, when their desire, to marry and have children, finally breaks through all of the feminist BS about “finding personal fulfillment” through “career”, many discover, to their great surprise, that they can’t get pregnant at 40 because their chances of conceiving each month is down to 5%.
Fruzsina Keehn, 45, said, “I watch what I eat, I don’t drink, I take extremely good care of myself, and I come from a very fertile family.”
Ms. Keehn, who is a high-end jewelry designer on both coasts, went on to say, “Everyone in my life told me how young I looked for my age. I assumed it was the same on the inside as it was on the outside.” She had suffered the failures of eight in vitro fertilizations over a period of two years. And despite those disappointments, she will soon try to conceive with a donor egg.
Dr. Ingrid Rodi, an associate clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at U.C.L.A. says, “They all think they are more fertile than they are.” She goes on to say, “I have patients who say: ‘I’m 48 but everyone thinks I’m 38. Shouldn’t I be as fertile as a 38-year-old?’ ”
BabyCenter.com, which has 25 million visitors to its site each month, did a survey recently and the results were telling. Of the nearly 2000 women polled, 74% believed that looking and feeling healthy was as important as biological age when trying to get pregnant! DUH.
Another doctor says his experience has been that a lot of the misperceptions concerning fertility rates is as a result of so many high-profile actresses who have had babies in their 40s. As a result, many women delude themselves into thinking that they’ve got time. “If Hallie Berry can have a baby at 41, so can I!”
As a result, millions of women find they’ve waited too long to become pregnant because they failed to realize that most of these wealthy actresses, such as Kelly Preston (48), Tia Fey (41), Selma Hayek (40), Susan Sarandon (45), Kim Basinger (41), Brooke Shields (41), Celine Dion (42), Molly Ringwald (41), Helen Hunt (40), Geena Davis (48), Meryl Streep (42), Nicole Kidman (40), Mariah Carey (42), Cheryl Tiegs (44), Jennifer Connelly (40), Mary Stuart Masterson (45), Uma Thurman (42), Julianna Moore (41) and Naomi Watts (40) paid dearly for those children.
The doctor found that most of his profoundly disappointed, barren clients failed to realize that nearly all of these actresses spent hundreds of thousands of dollars, and many years, resourcing multiple IVF (in vitro fertilization) attempts, in order to get pregnant in their 40s. And the reason? because it is so unnatural.
A single IVF treatment can run $20,000 and many of these women had several before they conceived. By the time a woman reaches 40, of the 2 million eggs she was born with, only 10,000 to 40,000 have survived. So, some of these women used donor eggs as well.
Thanks to radical, second-wave feminism’s push for “career first” there are so many older women trying to unsuccessfully have children after 40, that female age-related infertility, has become the most common cause of infertility today.
When you add to this number, the additional damage done to fertility rates, by the feminist’s encouragement of – herpes, HPV, etc. (“sexual liberation”), obesity (admire the mind, not body), anorexia (third-wave feminists defined by explicit sexuality), equality (smoke like a guy), and the blame game (it’s always the guy’s fault), it’s really disheartening that so many “smart” women got sucked into this BS.
Thanks to these twisted radical feminist “priorities”, including encouraging women to pursue pointless “careers” into old age; the “sexual revolution” (as defined by Chlamydia STD (sexually transmitted diseases), now causes 4.5 million cases of female infertility; 12% of infertility cases are as a result of the women being too thin or too fat (twisted body image); 13% of female infertility is related to cigarette smoking (You, go girl!) and that in 60% of infertile couples the female is the sole cause (It’s the women, not the men!), its amazing that anyone gets pregnant at all.
For anyone who knows a delusional radical, second-wave, feminist “career” woman who is still operating under the misconception that she’ll be able to start her family at 40, here’s the truth.
Tell her she better stop listening to her feminist girlfriends and, get a-move-on, if she wants kids!
