It is the the Doctors’ Appeal once again sounding the alarm about the low birth rates in Sweden. The significant decrease in the number of born children has been widely reported in the media since last year, but the explanation for why remains unclear.

For example, in December 2022, you could read in Aftonbladet that ”childbirth has plummeted” in Sweden, which was referred to as ”a mystery” in the newspaper. In August of this year, Statistics Sweden (SCB) stated that childbirth in Sweden is ”the lowest in 20 years.”

”In the first quarter of this year, 2023, only 1.47 children were born per woman – the lowest level we’ve seen in Sweden since the 1970s”, wrote Hela Gotland a few days ago.

”The catastrophic decrease in birth rates in Sweden, which correlates quite precisely with the COVID vaccination of the childbearing part of the population, continues and intensifies. Compared to the trend from the previous 10 years, there was an 8.6% decrease in 2022. For the first 7 months of 2023, childbirth decreased by 12.0%”, states the Doctors’ Appeal (Läkaruppropet) on X.

”Historically, this steep decline is entirely unique; it has never occurred since at least 1900 unless there was a baby boom first, and the current decrease has not been preceded by a period of high birth rates”, they continue.

The Doctors’ Appeal demands answers from the Public Health Agency, the Medical Products Agency, and the National Board of Health and Welfare, as well as from the government and other political parties in the parliament.

According to the doctor group, it is ”completely incomprehensible” that politicians do not seem to be concerned.
