The recession may be causing more people to decide that they don't want to have children. Doctors around the country are reporting a sharp increase in the number of vasectomies performed since last year.

Researchers are concluding that the trend is due to a decreased desire to have children because of the expense involved and more people may be having medical procedures before their jobs and health insurance disappear.
