American women are having fewer babies ...
A new government report shows the fertility rate in 2017 was 16% below what is needed for a population to replace itself.
In fact only two states, South Dakota and Utah, had fertility rates above the replacement level.
Washington D,C, had the lowest fertility rate followed by Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
