The first Fertility Day will be celebrated on September 22, 2016, to draw the attention of all public opinion on the subject of fertility and its protection. Its establishment is provided by the National Plan of Fertility to focus with great emphasis the danger of falling birth rates in our country, the beauty of motherhood and fatherhood, the risk of diseases that prevent you from becoming parents, the help of medicine for women and for men who can not have children. The event will involve all the Italian municipalities through ANCI, and all the actors and stakeholders in numerous awareness and deepening initiatives: young people, families, doctors, pharmacists, professional bodies, associations and scientific societies “
So reads the statement of the Ministry of Health on the initiative promoted by Mr.Lorenzin. Seen in these terms, this initiative can appear as the long-awaited outlet from the government stance against the very serious problem of the falling birth rates that plagues our country for years. Couples, especially the younger ones, are literally afraid to give birth to new children, in particular due to the tremendous economic difficulties arising from the crisis we are experiencing. Yet the same government which is part of the Lorenzin Minister has increased in the wake of previous administrations, the tax burden to satisfy the European Union’s requests and supported the so-called stepchild adoption , also fighting for the legalization of the uterus for rent . There is no concrete policy of aid and support to large families at / or below the poverty line, the baby products have costs too prohibitive for many citizens, nursery schools close for lack of organic (and not for lack of workers available), youth unemployment is the highest in Europe, schools are closing or are falling apart. So if on the one hand the government is the mouthpiece of population growth as a guarantee of the future of the nation, the other constitutes a real obstacle to the construction of this future. And this, of course, generates controversy, some of which is justified. And ‘an undeniable fact that pregnant women are discriminated against at work, forcing them to choose between motherhood and the security of a stable economic situation.
And if on the one hand we controversy dictated by a certain logic, the same can not be said of the reaction, always exaggerated and ridiculous, the progressive world. We see comparisons between the Lorenzin and the Fascist period, a time when the government stimulated the increase in population to rebuild a country that needed work force and young minds to overcome the difficult time after the war. The radical chic, struggling with all the energy necessary to import foreign laborers to the shortage of workers and to allow homosexual couples to adopt or to procreate through wombs for rent, improvised accountants and are fighting against the traditional birth, why not work there is for all. A genuine contradiction, typical of neo-anti-fascist currents. The attitude, as we know, is not derived from the careful and rational of the social context in which we live, but it is inherent in the idea of progressive counter any notion that has link with the past, with the Fascist period, but not only; all it surrounded by the usual hatred of Christianity, which has always promoted the birth rate.
The detachment from reality becomes so cross. Government and progressivism become two sides of the same coin, the one who wants to increase the population but no certainties, the other does not want it for the same reasons that it ignores.
Far from writer to discuss the importance of the children, but they have to be born in a society that offers them only certainties. And this Government gives no such certainties. Common sense first.
