Why are there so many single mothers? (12/2, Opinion, “As I See It: Bearing the brunt of poverty”) Possibly because liberal policies have encouraged and rewarded poor choices. With Aid to Families with Dependent Children payments being abused as baby payoffs, there is no end to the cash cow. How about mandatory birth control before receiving the first check?
While I applaud the efforts of the Women’s Foundation to educate, education of boys and men to respect life might go a long way toward reducing the numbers of single moms. The focus should not be what to do about single mothers but rather how to avoid becoming one.
Until the liberal media vilify the Hollywood crowd and sports figures for breeding like cur dogs, treating the symptoms only allows the problem to fester.
Dawn Oliver, executive director at The Women’s Foundation of Greater Kansas City, states: “In the Kansas City area in 2007, the average income for males was $47,088; for females it was $35,609. In other words, in Kansas City, women earn 76 cents for every dollar earned by men.” She does not say “for performing the same work.” This makes a big difference and is very misleading. I hope this was just a mistake.
