Considers some recent statistics on the birthrate in the United States which indicate that the birthrate, which had fallen to 69 births per 1,000 women (ages 15 to 44), has risen in 1990 to 71 births per 1,000 women. In tandem with the number of marriages up, the number of divorces down and the abortion rate down, it is possible that the number of women working full time will peak. Voter turnout fell.
