South Korea reports population drop, with more deaths than births for first time

RAEL’S COMMENT:
Very good news! Congratulations Korea! The Korean government (as well as all other countries) should instead use this money to promote the welcoming of refugees and the adoption of orphans  from poor countries.

 

Bill Worthington shared this comment in Overpopulation Awareness Group (Facebook) above the CNN article he shared.
Why is it that none of the articles like this, see it as a positive thing that the population is declining? Instead of government intervention to increase fertility, maybe the resources would be better spent to handle a new demographics of a declining population?

CNN – South Korea recorded more deaths than births in 2020 for the first time ever, prompting calls for action to revive the country’s falling fertility rate.

The country’s fertility rate — the average number of children a woman will have in her lifetime — has repeatedly hit record lows, and ranks near the bottom of the lowest fertility rates in the world. Meanwhile, South Korea’s population continues to age, sending the country into a demographic decline.

But last year’s census data, released by the Ministry of Interior and Safety on Monday, appears even more alarming. There were only 275,815 births, a record low — compared to 307,764 deaths, a 3.1% increase in fatalities from the previous year.
