Danica May Camacho, the little baby crying here, is a newborn that marks a big change for the world. The Phillipines’ born baby is the world’s 7 billionth baby. The communist hospital she was born within had staff that all cheered with the announcement of her birth.
Media also heavily packed into the government run facility, cameras exploding to capture an image of the world’s “official” seven billionth person.
Danica May Camacho weighs 5.5 pounds and was born to Camille Dalura at Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila, Phillipines.
Another guest of honor at the bedside was Lorrize Mae Guevarra, born in 1999 and now 12 years old. Lorrize was the world’s 6 billionth baby.
In a world that’s clamoring for more American aide, it’s troubling to many officials that population explosions are most prominent in areas that are having terse political and economic times. As the populations of civilized countries remain stable or decreasing, more primitive nations such as China, India and Mexico continue to suffer from high birth rates.
Camille Dalura said of her mother, “She looks so lovely,” holding her newborn child close adn whispering softly in her ear. “I can’t believe she is the world’s seventh billion.”
