It's a good show which even has a single dad who is a great father, so I won't spoil anything in my description: In the near future everyone on earth has become infertile, but a scientist fertilizes 100 embryos so the US government creates a lottery to save the human race.
What's important is that The Lottery is only open to female candidates who are best suited to become mothers. When they describe the girls who have made it into the 1st round, the ones "best suited" to become mothers, we find out that they are all in their 20s! The show tries not to mention the age requirement but it's pretty obvious. Then in episode 9 they explicitly state the maximum age as 32. 32!!
|Smart girls judging the only moron who doesn't want to get pregnant|
This show is like a subtle warning to all the girls who think they can delay having children until they are in their late 30s. Girls are finding out the hard way that the celebrities who have babies over 35 are only able to do so because they are rich enough to afford the best fertility specialists & the best drugs. The average couple cannot. They foolishly think that because they look young & are healthy that they are still fertile, they are not.
Female fertility declines with age. This is a medical fact & girls need to stop delaying marriage & children. They also need to realize that fertility in men is also affected by age. The rate of Autism in children increases with both the mother's age & also the father's age!
Of course girls who are over 30 try to validate their terrible life choices by trying to get young girls to make the same bad choice to wait. They lie & claim that the fertility data is outdated but...
"In analysis done on the embryo transfers that took place in the year 2006, 44.9% resulted in live births in women younger than 35 years — compared to 37.3% in women 35-37"
- American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
"older moms also face an increased risk of complications in the delivery room, according to a 2007 study that examined data from births between 1980 and 2004" - National Institutes of Health
"fertility especially declines after age 35. As a woman ages, normal changes that occur in her ovaries and eggs make it harder to become pregnant. Even though menstrual cycles continue to be regular in a woman's 30s and 40s, the eggs that ovulate each month are of poorer quality than those from her 20s. It is harder to get pregnant when the eggs are poorer in quality." - The Office on Women's Health
"As you get older, you're also more likely to deal with health problems that may affect your fertility" - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
"There is a noticeable decline in the fertility rate starting at age 35 to a level of about 10% per month." - Southern California Center for Reproductive Medicine
“Each month that she tries, a healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman has a 20% chance of getting pregnant,” the American Society for Reproductive Medicine notes in a report. “By age 40, a woman’s chance is less than 5% per cycle.” - Wall Street Journal
"Most women simply don’t realize that at 30, a healthy woman has about a 20 percent chance of conceiving per month and by the time she reaches 40, her odds drop to about 5 percent" - Today Show
Girls need to stop delaying marriage & motherhood or they will end up like this girl who is 33 & already has fertility problems. (Her story also demonstrates why you shouldn't marry a girl in her 30s. Only 1 month after marriage & the beta-bux husband is turned into nothing more than a sperm-donor.)
