It's right there, in all the depressing stats. An estimated 10,000 to 12,000 Philadelphia teens are mothers, according to a story by thenotebook.org , a local education-news service. Project U-Turn, a city campaign to focus on the city's dropout rate, estimates that more than 70 percent of those teens will drop out of high school. The number of children living in single-parent homes has nearly doubled since 1960, according to data from the 2010 Census. More than 40 percent of teenage moms report living in poverty by age 27. The rates are especially high among black and Hispanic teen moms, more than half of whom end up in poverty. I'm not just holding you accountable here. One-third of American children - 15 million - are being raised without a father, according to studies. I cannot and will not downplay the importance of a father in a child's life.

We can blame government policies that started over 40 years ago. The welfare system took the place of the father in the family, and the break down of the moral values in the country made it acceptable.
It's not getting any better. I now have 2 gay gal friends who are having turkey-baster babies. Dads? They don't need no stinkin' dads!

Black women have many unwanted babies. I am daddy of 8 little Somali. I get $600 a month free food. Very good.
