OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
Young Americans are battling record levels of debt and have relatively low paying jobs. As a result, many Millennials are choosing to have children later in life.
81% of men and 67% of women believe that female fertility drops after age 44. However, a woman’s ability to have children actually drops when she is within the 27-35 age range.
A growing majority of men and women also mistakenly believe that new fertility treatments eliminate age as a factor of determining the right time to have children.
WHY WE CARE
Many Millennials are making decisions about their futures based on the financial stress they are under today. False information about female fertility could drastically impact young Americans’ desires to start families in the future.
OUR TIME OPINION
Young Americans need to have accurate information when making major life decisions, especially when these decisions, such as when to have children, have potential health risks.
