War Babies … or?

Lots of babies were born about nine months after the start of World War II. They called them “war babies” and a rumor said men got their wives pregnant because they thought that would keep them from getting drafted, so they were unpatriotic.
The real reason was that people got so emotional because of what was happening.
That makes me wonder if we can expect a lot of babies to be born toward the end of this year – or even sooner – because of all the stress people are dealing with due to the Covid-19 virus, racial riots, nasty politics, economic problems, fires, and hurricanes.
On the other hand, maybe people are reluctant to bring babies into this sorry world.
It will be interesting to see what happens..
