  • 40 Percent Of Kids Now Born To Single Moms—Up 700 Percent Since 1960


    A recent report from the Social Capital Project reveals that the American family is disintegrating, fast.  Fully 40 percent of mothers are currently unmarried.
    This is bad news, because good families depend on good marriages. Marriage is the moral glue that binds them.  It’s the stabilizing agent.  There’s a reason that children from married couples do better in school, and are less likely to end up in jail as compared to children of unmarried mothers, known as “fragile families.”

    Lavar Young, civil rights activist, thinks marriage is a powerful tool for fighting against racial inequality.  He outlines some of the problems children born out of wedlock face:

    Fragile families are shown to have harsher parenting practices and fewer literacy activities, and children of such families produce lower cognitive test scores and a have a higher incidence of aggressive behavior.

    Children are not the only ones who suffer, according to Mr. Young:

    …compared with “traditional families,” parents of fragile families are more likely to have become parents in their teens, more likely to have had children with other partners, more likely to be poor, suffer from depression, struggle with substance abuse, and to have been incarcerated.

    When it comes to raising successful children, the importance of married parents cannot be overstated.  On balance, married parents set better examples, and foster more stable relationships and environments that better prepare children for adult life.  This is eloquently put by the authors at the Social Capital Project:

    Of all the social relationships that shape people throughout our lives, none is so formative and consequential as the one children have with their parents. For most of us, it is primarily the nuclear family that socializes us into the adult world, develops in us secure attachment and emotional maturation, and transfers to us the values and skills that shape the rest of our lives. No source of social capital matters more—whether for individuals or for society as a whole.
    Sadly, the nuclear family has been in decline for some time—and we’re already experiencing the dire consequences as a society.

    The Social Capital Project, spearheaded by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), decided to investigate why single motherhood has become more common in the last two generations. Since 1960, America’s single motherhood rate has risen from 5 percent to 40 percent in absolute terms—a 700 percent increase in under 60 years.


    This is partly due to the increasing acceptance in out-of-wedlock births.  But, as the authors point out, this rise has a few more concrete explanations, such as: increased unwed promiscuity, fewer “shotgun marriages” to pregnant single women, and increasing delayed marriage/rising divorce.

    The authors conclude that the common explanation of economic problems is not the primary driver of this phenomenon:

    Social phenomena are complicated and have multiple causes, but our read of the evidence—and we are by no means alone—is that negative economic trends explain little of the overall rise in unwed childbearing. Instead, we think it is more likely that, as with other worsening aspects of our associational life, rising family instability primarily reflects societal affluence, which reduced marriage and marital childbearing, increased divorce and nonmarital sexual activity and pregnancy, and reduced shotgun marriage.

    This report adds to the wealth of data showing that traditional American families have been on the decline.

    Senator Lee himself is a social conservative and a long-time advocate for the traditional family. His response to this report is optimistic, but acknowledges that more data is needed to understand the problem:

    The structure of American families has changed over the past generation and it is important that policy makers study the factors that are contributing to this trend. I hope this paper contributes to that debate.

    In any event, these data are disturbing: the decline of marriage, and the rise of single motherhood imperils American society because of its destabilizing effect.  It’s time we took this problem seriously.

  • I support all that you posted.  Truth is the government rewards these actions.  If  mom is single, many benefits await mom.  Medical paid for and you know the rest of the story. 

    Other countries reward those who don't marry.  Was it Netherlands that give $$$ equal to $2,000 a year?

    Masonry/communist are working very hard for their "No God", tear up the family agenda.

    Catholic Charities help the communist ways!

  • Take for example the Black population, in 1950 and 1960 there were a very few if any single mom's. Starting with the
    War on Poverty in 1965, and part of the welfare programs, White social workers  encouraged the Black Mother to break
    up with their husbands and have more children so can they can get more welfare from the government.  
    The plan was to lock in the Blacks in on the Democratic Party plantation so they will vote perpetually for Democratic
    politicians.
    After several generations has led to high crime rates in which the media suppresses for political reasons. Taking away
    the Father has led the Black Youth to fall into crime, gangs, and urban warfare.
    All I can say look at the results. This was done deliberately to bring a successful communist revolution, and the
    Blacks are just being used.

  • "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • Saddling a child with a single mother could qualify as the second worst form of child abuse, after infanticide.

    I wonder what the statistics are for children raised in orphanages. It wouldn't shock me if children turn out better with the state raising them.
