Clicking on the title of this post will take you to Stephen Mosher's insightful commentary on this issue. The original article was sent by Mosher's Population Research Institute as part of their weekly update but since PRI is usually a week or two behind in posting those e-mail updates onto their web site, LifeIssues.net re-printed the alert on their own site. Thanks to both groups.
