Birth rate soon to rise as pregnancy tests become easier

London (dpo) - Will the storks soon be flying overtime? The Children and Families Minister, Vicky Ford (Conservative Party), intends to take drastic measures to increase the UK’s birth rate, which is currently far too low. As of this year, pregnancy tests are to become far easier. According to studies, women fail nine out of ten pregnancy tests.

Ms Ford now calculates that the more women who get positive results in their pregnancy tests, the more children are born. Even now, most counties allow women to take the test as often as they like. Yet, by about the 30th time, many lose patience and stop trying.
One single bar will do in future
Today, Ms Ford held a press conference and described how her own suffering had prompted her decision: “Many think it is very easy to simply pee on a stick and wait for a few minutes – and yet, it still took me nine attepts to achieve the result I wanted! And I am saying this as the Minister for Children.”
In future, just one bar will be sufficient on most pregnancy tests. Repeating pregnancy tests after the first child could also be a thing of the past. “Women who have passed the test once can have as many children as they like afterwards”, Ms Ford says.
However, the right-wing Cornerstone Group is yet to be convinced by Ms Ford’s progress. The traditionalist Conservatives worry that lower pregnancy testing standards will primarily lead to an increased birth rate among women with low levels of education and teenagers. Rather than reducing the level of difficulty, the Cornerstone Group believes women should practice intensively for their pregnancy test – preferably with their partners.
