Birth Control Pill Inventor Regrets

Carl Djerassi, the 85-year-old Austrian who helped invent the Pill, says his creation has led to a "demographic catastrophe." Now he tells us! Dr. Djerassi says Austrians are committing national suicide.
He's right. Take a look at this animation. By current projections, come 2050 -- that's a little more than one generation from now -- about 20 percent of Austrians will be under the age of 25. Thirty-four percent will be over 65. It's a dying nation. The coroner will rule suicide.
Same kind of animated charts for Germany, France, Italy, and Spain (which looks like a mushroom cloud, appropriately enough) -- all show similar results.
