USA Today Editorial: It’s Time to Lower Out of Wedlock Births!


An Op-Ed in USA Today says Our view on kids: When unwed births hit 41%, it's just not right:

“In 2009, 41% of children born in the USA were born to unmarried mothers (up from 5% a half-century ago). That includes 73% of non-Hispanic black children, 53% of Hispanic children and 29% of non-Hispanic white children. Those are not misprints.”

…evidence is overwhelming that children of single mothers — particularly teen mothers — suffer disproportionately high poverty rates, impaired development and low school performance.”
