  • Married homes least likely to be violent: study

    Children living in unwed-mother homes are more likely to witness domestic violence than children growing up with their married mother and father, says a new analysis. The finding is counterintuitive since mothers who have never married would appear to be less likely to get into fights at home with someone. However, data show that the rate of witnessing domestic violence among children living with never-married mothers was 116 children per 1,000, “six times higher than the rate for children in intact families,” said psychologist Nicholas Zill, who published his findings at the Institute for Family Studies in Charlottesville, Va., in...

    Actress Olivia Wilde is featured on the cover of the September issue of Glamour magazine. Inside the glossy is an article in which Wilde talks about what life is like for her “being a working mom.” An article featuring the vacuous ramblings of the newby mom (“I wasn’t going to sacrifice myself because I was becoming a mother,” she told her interviewer) would be unworthy of comment here were it not for the pictorial that accompanied the article. Or, more specifically, the photo of Wilde sitting in the booth of some Hollywood diner, glammed up in a Roberto Cavalli dress,...
  • Census Report Shocker (census report details demographic details of non-marital childbearing)

    American Thinker ^ | 05/03/2013 | Janice Shaw Crouse
    The issue of "who's minding the kids" is now taking back seat to "who is having the kids." The just-released Census Bureau Report, "Social and Economic Characteristics of Currently Unmarried Women With a Recent Birth, 2011," (SECCUM) describes for the first time the demographic details of non-marital childbearing -- and it is not a pretty picture. The report reveals dramatic increases in non-marital births and is the first Census Bureau report showing the relationship of non-marital births to geographic variations and educational attainment. It is depressing yet unsurprising that with median age of women at first marriage approaching 27 years...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Jessica Schairer has so much in common with her boss, Chris Faulkner, that a visitor to the day care center they run might get them confused. They are both friendly white women from modest Midwestern backgrounds who left for college with conventional hopes of marriage, motherhood and career. They both have children in elementary school. They pass their days in similar ways: juggling toddlers, coaching teachers and swapping small secrets that mark them as friends. They even got tattoos together. Though Ms. Faulkner, as the boss, earns more money, the difference is a gap, not a...
  • Patton: 1965 'Tangle of Pathology' is a 2012 Reality

    As the national media and the establishment of both parties begin their obligatory mocking of Rick Santorum — arguably the new GOP frontrunner — for his passionate yet well-reasoned defense of innocent human life, traditional marriage, fidelity, monogamy and conservative family values, it is worth noting that he is absolutely right about the havoc the sexual revolution and the welfare state have wrought upon America. In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, then a Labor Department official, released an alarming report about the number of black children born to unwed mothers. The percentage at that time was 25 percent. In the years...
  • (Bastard Nation) Most Births Among Those Under 30 Are To Unwed Moms

    Most Births Among Those Under 30 Are To Unwed Moms It used to be called illegitimacy. Now it is the new normal. After steadily rising for five decades, the share of children born to unmarried women has crossed a threshold: More than half of births to U.S. women younger than 30 occur outside marriage. Once largely limited to poor women and minorities, motherhood without marriage has settled deeply into middle America. The fastest growth in the past two decades has occurred among white women in their 20s who have some college education but no four-year degree, according to Child Trends,...

    [...] A new study published Thursday in the American Sociological Review shows that the negative health consequences for women who give birth out of wedlock can be long lasting — and are unlikely to go away when those women marry later in life. Lead author Kristi Williams, an associate professor of sociology at Ohio State University, looked at data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, which followed nearly 13,000 men and women born between 1957 and 1965. Participants in the survey have been interviewed regularly over a course of about 30 years. Among other questions, the survey asked participants...

    Happy with high taxes America? Thank an unwed single mother! From The Heritage Foundation: In fact, roughly 75 percent of all families on welfare are single-parent families. With the number of unwed births skyrocketing over the last five decades (more than 40 percent of births in the United States today are to single moms), the cost of federal welfare has mushroomed. Currently, Washington operates more than 70 welfare programs at a cost edging toward $1 trillion annually. Yet poverty and government dependence aren’t the only problems connected to single-parent families. Children raised without fathers are at greater risk for a...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 01/10/2010 | Philip R. O'Connor
    The far nastier truth is that organized criminal gangs are contesting the claim of legitimate government. The weekly murder map of the Tribune's RedEye edition shows where Chicago's murder rates rival those in Baghdad's toughest sectors ( Insurgencies thrive on disorder. The message is that government is unable or unwilling to protect residents and their property. Insurgents -- in Chicago's case, street gangs rather than al-Qaida terrorists, Shiite militias or Afghanistan's Taliban -- fill the void. Like insurgents elsewhere, Chicago gangs recruit members using punishment and rewards. They sometimes murder police informants and collaborators and dispense justice according to their...

  • Holdren: Seize babies born to unwed women

    Obama science czar John Holdren stated in a college textbook that "illegitimate children" born to unwed mothers could be taken by the government and put up for adoption if the mother refused to have an abortion. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, argued that "illegitimate childbearing could be strongly discouraged" as a socioeconomic measure imposed to control population growth. As previously reported, WND has obtained a copy of the 1970s college textbook "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment" that Holdren co-authored with Malthusian population alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich and Ehrlich's wife, Anne. The authors argued involuntary...
  • Sex Ed Is Failing In America

    Obviously, the progressive viewpoint of providing sex education in our schools and the movement towards handing out birth control isn't working. And why should it? We've got an educational system in this country that can't teach the basics of reading and math, and somehow, we expect that same system to do a good job in teaching sex ed?

Now it turns out the Democrats don't know the difference between a million and a trillion. Why not make the "stimulus bill" a kazillion dollars? All Americans who work for a living, or who plan to work for a living sometime in the next century, are about to be stuck with a trillion-dollar bill to fund yet more oppressive government bureaucracies.

Mississippi's rate was more than 60 percent higher than the national average in 2006, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. The teen pregnancy rate in Texas and New Mexico was more than 50 percent higher. ------------- Snip

    Even though Barack Obama has "moved on" from the messy association that he has recently been forced to explain to man who had been his pastor for 20 years, it is clear - the voters haven't. There are legitimate questions being raised about a relationship that spans a generation and the beliefs of a man who has on multiple dozens of occasions issued some of the most vitriolic, bigoted, racism imaginable in America today. No doubt one of the most infamous video moments recently unearthed was Jeremiah Wright's use of what he cleverly believed to be a cute play on...

Thomas, 25, of 28 Ellis St., had already delivered the first baby at home when paramedics arrived at 4:30 a.m., said Capt. Michael McDaniel, the Fire Department spokesman. "The baby was suspended in her stretch pants, and the paramedics got it out, cut the cord and got it crying and then delivered the next one,'' McDaniel said.

    Comedian Bill Cosby, making an all-day visit to Baltimore on Tuesday, took absentee fathers to task, urged elementary school students to study and suggested unusual methods to prevent teenage pregnancy. "If you hear a female say, 'I want to have something that loves me,' stop her," Cosby said during a visit to a West Baltimore elementary school. "Stop her quickly. Duct tape her to the closet. This is no time to fool around. You can't dump this (baby) on your mother, you can't dump this on your grandmother." Cosby was serious most of the time, however, including, at a panel...

There were 490 female students at Timken High School in 2005, and 65 were pregnant, WEWS-TV in Cleveland reported. The new Canton school board program promotes abstinence but also will teach students who decide to have sex how to do so responsibly, bringing the city school district's health curriculum in line...
