Why are teen girls having kids outside of marriage?

Because they can.

We’re looking at it backwards. Young girls WILL have sex and get pregnant unless there is a strong disincentive against it. Welfare and court-enforced child support means they can have kids without the bother of havingto keep a guy happy.

Eliminate welfare and child support for unmarried births, and teen pregnancy will go back down to what they were.

Biology is certainly a factor, and so are welfare payments, at least to the first generation of poverty mommas.

But after that they’ve got to see the downward spiral, the lack, the difficulty of no father in the mix who cares, and the abject lack of hope.

So, “Why are black families broken?” is still a question I’m thinking about. Right now it ties to “Why now so much, and why in the past not so much.”

We have been given over to our nature.
