The post war world in 1947 was in the midst of a record shattering baby boom when Margaret Sanger issued her call above for no more babies for ten years in Europe. However, it took a generation, but ultimately the dying societies of most of Europe heeded her advice, and the barren womb might as well be depicted on the EU flag. The future belongs ultimately to those who want kids, and that leaves out much of the West.
