Out-of-Wedlock Birthrates Are Soaring, U.S. Reports
New York Times ^ | May 13, 2009 | Gardiner Harris

Posted on 05/13/2009 9:56:44 AM PDT by reaganaut1

Unmarried mothers gave birth to 4 out of every 10 babies born in the United States in 2007, a share that is increasing rapidly both here and abroad, according to government figures released Wednesday.

Before 1970, most unmarried mothers were teenagers. But in recent years the birthrate among unmarried women in their 20s and 30s has soared — rising 34 percent since 2002, for example, in women ages 30 to 34. In 2007, women in their 20s had 60 percent of all babies born out of wedlock, teenagers had 23 percent and women 30 and older had 17 percent.

Much of the increase in unmarried births has occurred among parents who are living together but are not married, cohabitation arrangements that tend to be less stable than marriages, studies show.

The pattern has been particularly pronounced among Hispanic women, climbing 20 percent from 2002 to 2006, the most recent year for which racial breakdowns are available. Eleven percent of unmarried Hispanic women had a baby in 2006, compared with 7 percent of unmarried black women and 3 percent of unmarried white women, according to government data drawn from birth certificates.

Titled “Changing Patterns of Nonmarital Childbearing in the United States,” the report was released by the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Out-of-wedlock births are also rising in much of the industrialized world: in Iceland, 66 percent of children are born to unmarried mothers; in Sweden, the share is 55 percent. (In other societies, though, the phenomenon remains rare — just 2 percent in Japan, for example.)

I bet part of this trend is explained by the rising fraction of the population that is Hispanic, but it is increasing among white women too.

Don't expect many single mothers to vote Republican -- they need government as Daddy. I do not agree with the priorities of the social conservative bloc in the Repubilcan Party. Reducing illegitimacy is very important.

Eugene Cane (an African American writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) tackles the tough social question regarding single parenting in the African-American community. An issue, which he believes has an impact on everything from crime to education to poverty.

“Why are there so many out-of-wedlock births in the African-American community?” He asks, and presents statistics indicating that nearly 70% of black babies are born out of wedlock - surely an incredible figure.

That’s funny, because I mentioned the same thing to a customer the other day. I watched Baby Momma with my g/f last week, and it glorified two out of wedlock mothers having babies. I went to the Dr. Monday and the waiting area for pediatrics was adjoining my Dr’s office, and there were 4 women 18 or 19 and under. One gal looked about 15 and she had a toddler, another in a stroller, and one in the oven. (she was a permanent exchange student from south of the border)

This is a very important question: What percentage of these babies are on the public dole?

This is our answer. Years ago, there was no way to automatically show up with your hand out and receive a check.

If you mean increased sex education and abortion, re-read the article. Europe with it's more "enlightened" attitudes toward sexuality, contraception and abortion has an even higher illegitimacy rate.

Having sex is associated with having babies. Even for married couples, some actually plan pregnancies but most children are accidents.

Hollywood’s glorification of this is a 24/7 drip feed to impressionable masses.

But time to stop just blaming the women.

Many of today’s men are in arrested adolescence and take the same Hollywood enticement—get out there, get a Harley, slick up your chick appeal (I’ve never seen so many adult men spending a fortune on motorcycles, expensive guitars, sailboats...can you imagine our parents generation doing this?).

Whatever happened to ‘When a man becomes a man, he puts away childish things”?

Somebody needs to be the grownups around here, someon has to lead, be a role model. Somebody’s got to resist the Hollywood drug. Men and women.

Or we’ll have a nation of botoxed, viagra-ed, baby as accessory, breast-implanted, porn addicted, cruising sensation junkies strung out on shallow sugar highs and never committing to dignity, values and multi-generational families built on a common legacy.

This will continue as long as the govt is allowed to continue to prostitute motherhood....the govt and the lawyers get to cut up the 16 billion that this industry of misery is really about.

And start holding women accountable.

You want the right to choose ladies....fine then you pay for it.

Men have been beaten up for this for 50 years and the problem is getting worse.

And men have no post conception choice.

Sorry that dog don’t hunt. While there are many Hispanics that are good Catholics, many of the young ones are finding out if they have out-of-wedlock births, they get lots of freebees.

Why do you think the RATS are making so much headway in the Hispanic community? They are getting on the dole too.

The dimensions of the Hispanic baby boom are startling. The Hispanic birthrate is twice as high as that of the rest of the American population. That high fertility rate—even more than unbounded levels of immigration—will fuel the rapid Hispanic population boom in the coming decades. By 2050, the Latino population will have tripled, the Census Bureau projects. One in four Americans will be Hispanic by mid-century, twice the current ratio. In states such as California and Texas, Hispanics will be in the clear majority. Nationally, whites will drop from near 70 percent of the total population in 2000 to just half by 2050. Hispanics will account for 46 percent of the nation’s added population over the next two decades, the Pew Hispanic Center reports.

But it’s the fertility surge among unwed Hispanics that should worry policymakers. Hispanic women have the highest unmarried birthrate in the country—over three times that of whites and Asians, and nearly one and a half times that of black women, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women bore 92 children in 2003 (the latest year for which data exist), compared with 28 children for every 1,000 unmarried white women, 22 for every 1,000 unmarried Asian women, and 66 for every 1,000 unmarried black women. Forty-five percent of all Hispanic births occur outside of marriage, compared with 24 percent of white births and 15 percent of Asian births. Only the percentage of black out-of-wedlock births—68 percent—exceeds the Hispanic rate. But the black population is not going to triple over the next few decades.

The report states “Nonmartial birth rates are highest for Hispanic women followed by black women. Rates for non-hispanic white and Asian or Pacific-Islander women are much lower.” Definitely hitting the largest minority groups.

The pattern has been particularly pronounced among Hispanic women

Illegals? Or American citizens? If they are American Citizens, then QUIT SEPARATING THEM BY CALLING THEM HISPANCIS!!!!!! It's an American problem, it's happening in all nationalities, but as a whole, they make up America.

I guess if the rise is just in Hispanics, then "American whites" don't have to worry so it's not their problem. "African Americans" are safe also huh?

“Sarah S. Brown, chief executive of the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, a nonprofit advocacy group, said sex and pregnancy were handled far too cavalierly in the United States, where rates of unplanned pregnancies, births and abortions are far higher than those of other industrialized nations.”

I thought that the article said that 55% of births in Sweden were illegitimate, but then they included this comment. It is hard to tell where the US falls compared to Europe.

No offense, but you are either naive or ignorant to the obvious!

My wife is Hispanic (was Catholic, the rest of her family still IS) - she has two unmarried sisters: one with two kids and one with three; she has four cousins: all unmarried and either mothers or with child.

We have as many friends as I can count that are single women with at least one child! Many are Hispanic.

“Cutoff welfare for unmarried mothers and watch the rate fall.”

You are 100% correct. I know a couple of people in AZ that did not get married because the combined income would knock them off the public assistance for medical care for the baby. In fact one of these couples actually had a second child before they set the wedding date so the State would pay for the child birth. In my opinion the State should make the mother and father pay back all assistance they receive even if it takes them their entire life. In my world; any public assistance someone receives should go into an account and that person is responsible to pay back that money even if they have to do it with their social security when they retire. You would see the birth rates drop like a rock!

Please observe the any Asian Community - from well to do or lower, do you see any women: young or older - single, unmarried, pushing baby carriages or having many children with different men? Also take there total percentage of the Asian population in the United States and their success story and one wonders why have they achieved so much in so little time? Plain and simple: it is their strong family structure, their work ethic and also something I was raised with: if you shame yourself, you lose face and at the same time, you shame your Father and Mother and they lose face too. I rebelled and gave my parents many headaches but I thank them for what they did for me, because today I am a better person for it./Just Asking - seoul62......

“(I’ve never seen so many adult men spending a fortune on motorcycles, expensive guitars, sailboats...can you imagine our parents generation doing this?).”

Uh, they did. WW II generation was the worst in this regard. Check out the divorce rate during those times. It was also common for the married man, after coming home from the war, from hell, to find his wife shacked up with another man.

The equivalent of rape to a man is taking his money without any benefit to him. Yet, conservative women support and defend this practice.

A man only gets two choices in life: work or prison. A woman has full multitude of choices. She can have a ‘career’ (remember, only women have careers, men are stuck with ‘jobs’), stay at home, get welfare, etc. etc.

Men have to still sign up for military service to even get a college loan. Do women? No.

Abortion has nothing to do with the ‘right to life’ and all. It has everything to do with letting women do whatever the hell they want, and not letting them own up to their behavior. Contraceptives for women are considered ‘good’ in all cases, contraceptives for men are considered ‘suspect’.

Since men die sooner, they should be able to get Social Security benefits sooner. But this doesn’t happen because like all government services, Social Security primarily benefits women.

Men have no legal power. They are reamed in the courts. A man cannot have an abortion. A man cannot even act in self defense if a woman assaults him. If a man yells back at a woman yelling at him, it is ‘domestic abuse’. If a man decides he has had enough of the crazy wife and runs away, that also is considered ‘domestic abuse.’

I’m 28 and I will never marry due to the legal systems in place, the legal systems that conservative women are desperate to defend with their liberal sisters. Single mothers were what put Obama over the top electorally.

As an American male, I am in value in practically every country in the world to women. I can move to another country and easily find decent non-screwed up women. But Western women cannot. Men from other nations just aren’t interested. So they are stuck in the sinking holes of Western economies.

With women, even conservative women, attacking and degrading men all the time, why are you so surprised to find non-men like Obama up there? He is praised precisely because he is *not* a man. This is what you get after you conservative women went along with liberal women in attacking men.

As western civilization collapses, I will be outside the Anglosphere with a nice cigar. And I will laugh at these sluts getting exactly what they deserved.

It is, though...

a disproportionate amount of these out of wedlock births are to young hispanic women.

And I’ll state the Coulterism again, even though someone jumped down my neck last time:

if a woman makes choices leading to having a baby without a husband, she is intentionally raising a criminal.

Both gay “marriage” and the promotion of out of wedlock births are just different facets of the same policy:

devalue, undefine, and destroy the traditional family.

You are certainly bitter, so bitter you did not notice that I laid blame on both genders—it is a matter of human frailty and the goodies dangled in front of both by the ubiquitous entertainment industry to entice releasing values, faith, integrity and traditional commitment have taken a predictable toll.

I know single mothers put Obama in office, I am horrified at their absurd ignorance, but they are the very products of the culture that also is spawning men that will not commit, go out for their kicks and harden their hearts. It is a two headed hydra.

From what I have discovered along my checkered path is that meaning comes from commitment to God, relationships, hard work and understanding that working for something/goal/love/faith —and delaying gratification—is far sweeter and more nourishing than the instant variety that must be fed like cocaine.

Don’t harden your heart, we need more light warriors, not “I’m only in for myself” cynics.

I know of at least 8 women in the last 2 years - all in their 20s, all white and from 2-parent households that have gotten pregnant and had children (two lost their children - miscarriages) out of wedlock.

I commend them for not aborting the children. But what I don’t get is this notion that marriage is not an option. Most are living with their boyfriends or just indifferent to marriage. I assume it is simply fear of commitment.

It seems many have stopped honoring marriage. And its hard to make a strong case against alternative lifestyles diminishing its value to society if nobody really treats marriage as a sacred institution anymore.

Having been raised in the southwest and having been Catholic as well, I can tell you that to just assume that because most hispanics are Catholic they lead a pious life, is a mistake. They are, after all, people . The statistics in this article bear this out.

What we are moving toward is a ‘pink’ totalitarianism.

The simple rules going forward will be defined in two ways:

One, women are all property of the state. This is why marriage has transformed into a type of state ownership. If you wrong a woman, you do not wrong an individual. You wrong the state. Women, for whatever reason, are quite happy to allow themselves be owned by the state. The state also declares itself ownership of all children. You can’t even educate your child the way you want without the state coming at you, as if the state had anything to do with creating the child.

Two, the purpose of men is to work for women, i.e. the state. Be it in war, her comfort, anything, a man will be defined as only having responsibilities, never benefits.

What you will see in the near future is Obama becoming the first female president. He will keep attacking the men, as he did before, for ‘not living up to their responsibilities’ (which only the state defines). He will keep promising more goodies to the single moms.

The one's here in the US are doing it for all the 'wunnerful' benefits that come with being an unwed mother in the USA -- like having a US CITIZEN as a child. Many are also young teens and the father sperm donor is some gang-banger. (there's been articles posted with all the stats on unwed hispanics).

And by the 'religion' logic, there wouldn't be any Hispanic gangs either. All that killing, drug dealing, stealing and stuff are mortal sins. The scum in MS-13 are all Catholics. So much for them caring about their religion.

So sorry, that religion and Church argument is baloney.
That's Dubya's 'Family Values Don't Stop At The Rio Grande' canard.

Sorry, lo ciento, usted no es verdad.
Every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women bore 92 children in 2003 (the latest year for which data exist), compared with 28 children for every 1,000 unmarried white women, 22 for every 1,000 unmarried Asian women, and 66 for every 1,000 unmarried black women. Forty-five percent of all Hispanic births occur outside of marriage, compared with 24 percent of white births and 15 percent of Asian births. Only the percentage of black out-of-wedlock births—68 percent—exceeds the Hispanic rate
