I'm not sure what you mean, do you mean you believe that many of the things the article says aren't factually true, or that you find the reality described to be totally messed up?

One of the issues I had with the article is that they tell how we have the right fertility. Then they compare proffesional women to England as a whole, and say 'wow, American proffesionals have less kids that English women'. Well, ok, but how about telling me how American proffesionals compare to English proffesionals, American poor to English poor.

Other than that, I didn't see a lot of solutions. There was nothing but some hand waving about family planing for having the poor have less kids. There was a bit about more family leave to encourage those with money to have more children. Because that is what you want, parents who are in it for the paid leave.
