37% of American Births Out-of-Wedlock

Thirty Seven percent of total births in the U.S. are now illegitimate. The problem has two components, domestic and foreign. Births of immigrants, legal and illegal, make up an increasing number of births in the U.S., and the largest immigrant groups have disproportionate numbers of illegitimate births.

On the domestic side, many young couples are living together with the knowledge that they can stiff the taxpayers with the cost of their first baby if they don't marry until after the child is born.

Marriage is definitely under attack in this country. It is under attack from homosexual militants, now from polygamists, and also from plain old fashioned heterosexual immorality. Our leaders have apparently gone mad and devised a system of perverse disincentives to marry, while failing to rein in the secular courts who are determined to impose a re-definition of marriage on our population. In addition, our leaders seemed determined to allow waves of people in this country with no consideration of whether or not they are persons of virtue and integrity.

Can a United States of Illegitimate Illegal Immigrants stay a prosperous nation? Can a nation whose leaders are so blind and willfull in tearing down God's standards for civil government stay free in the next generation, or will we descend into the sorry state of the people of Iraq- needing the rule of a strongman because we no longer possess the virtue and restraint to rule ourselves?

We might also want to rethink the state and federal appropriation of millions of taxpayer dollars being wasted on Abstinence Only programs that do not appear to be having any effect--besides making money for the providers of such programs, increasing the number of out-of-wedlock births, and shorting programs that provide effective birth control information.

Abstinence works every time its tried.

If you would read the first link you would see there has been a DECREASE in teen pregnancy. The problem is older women having babies out of wedlock.

Don't see how you can blame "abstinence only" programs in United States high schools for an increase in out of wedlock births from older women and immigrants from other countries.

The only reason that poster blamed abstinence only programs is that liberals only want liberal indoctrination in public schools. Anything other than that is absolutely inexcusable to them. They also refuse to see the facts, as is obvious by that poster's comments.
