Preterm babies are less likely to form romantic relationships in adulthood
Adults who were born pre-term (under 37 weeks gestation) are less likely to have a romantic relationship, a sexual partner and experience parenthood than those born full term. The meta-analysis by researchers at the University of Warwick with data from up to 4.4 million adult participants showed that those born preterm are 28% less likely to ever be in a romantic relationship.
A meta-analysis conducted by researchers from the Department of Psychology at the University of Warwick has published ‘Association of Preterm Birth/Low Birth Weight with Romantic Partnership, Sexual Intercourse and Parenthood in Adulthood: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis’ in JAMA Network Open today, 12th of July. They have found that adults who were born pre-term are less likely to form romantic relationships than full-term peers.
In the analysis 4.4 million adult participants those born preterm were 28% less likely to form romantic relationships and 22% less likely to become parents, when compared to those born full term….
The rate ofin the United States increased in 2015 for the first time in eight years, and rates are especially high among certain racial and ethnic groups, a March of Dimes report says.
The overall rate rose from 9.57 percent to 9.63 percent, according to data from the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics. Rates in 2015 were nearly 48 percent higher for black women and more than 15 percent higher for American Indian/Alaska Native women compared to white women, according to the report….
Premature birth is associated with lack of vitamin D, which is associated with having dark skin and living under a covert eugenics regime such as the USA. Don’t want to go that far? Fine. It’s all an accident and american medical “science” is a cruel joke. Either way, you might consider the health benefits of running, as in running away from your doctor as fast as you can.
If the relationship between prematurity and long-term sterility is linear, then you’d get about a 1% reduction in parenthood per day of prematurity. Social engineers are also demographers and statisticians, so the first thing they’d be thinking about is the “payoff” in routine (non-indicated) birth induction for those with inconveniently high levels of vitamin D, particularly wrt protocols in poor inner city hospitals where doctors are already rushed and harried anyway. Establishing a “tolerance” or a window for routine chemically-induced miscarriage under “standards of care” would tend to select for such births. Heaven forbid that they just leave you alone to have your baby.
Of course there are many other payoffs to racially or poverty – targeted birth trauma besides depopulation. It is a major source of societal violence, drug addiction and imprisonment. Fortunately, economists routinely classify such disasters as a source of economic production, so these issues would only add to our GDP. Probably because disaster capitalism rules the day.
March of Dimes has a global map of preterm birth rates by country at https://www.marchofdimes.org/mission/global-preterm.aspx It seems to be correlated with skin color and the degree of a country’s colonization and/or subjugation. My guess is that if you weight it by medical costs per capita, you’d have a pretty good map of fabian (as opposed to military) social engineering at work.
