Zakaria GPS talks about Europe's population demographics: vacation trips offered to encourage conception of more babies

Today. Fareed Zakaria, on his Global Public Square, reported that European countries, along with Japan and Singapore, are increasingly concerned about their low native birth rates.  Zakaria even introduced the topic was “wanted, more unprotected sex”.
Denmark offers couples vacations to France hoping they will conceive babies while in hotels. 
Russia considers childbirth patriotic, and the low birth rate certainly figures into the anti-gay propaganda law.
Countries fear serious population drops and increasing percentage of people over 65.
The United States maintains its population and keeps its average age lower with immigration, because immigrants tend to have more babies.
All of this relates to the “demographic winter” problem and the “tipping point” article from the Washington Times, discussed on the Issues blog June 7, 2015.
