As a consequence, fully one-fifth of American newborns get fed “formula” straightaway. Almost half are on “formula” after six months. That’s not accommodation for women with a medical or rare logistical issue who can’t breastfeed – that’s a social trend, a lifestyle.
Cheerleading single parenthood — with mothers working dead-end near-minimum-wage jobs while the baby is God-knows-where in the back of some dank government care facility learning about preferred pronouns and sucking down Chinese GMO corn feed — doesn’t make women happier or more fulfilled.
All it does is further destabilize the foundational social structure of the West, drive intergenerational increases in mental illness, and bankroll the $55 billion “baby formula” industry.
