U.S. Leads the World in Single Parenthood - Friday 28th February, 2020

The United States has the world’s highest rates of children who live with only one parent.  The U.S. also leads the world or is among the leaders in other marks of family breakdown.  And Christians have the same rates of single parenthood as the “unaffiliated.”

These are the findings of a Pew Research Study that examined family arrangements in 130 countries.  In the United States, nearly one out of four children (23%) live in a household with only one parent and no other adults.  Worldwide, the percentage is 7%.  In China, this is true of only 3% of children.  In Nigeria, 4%.  In Canada, 15%.  In France, 16%.  In Denmark, 17%.

So nations that are rich, poor, Communist, Muslim, conservative, liberal, secularist, and sexually permissive all agree that children should be raised by both their mother and their father.  The United States, not so much.

Be Encouraged

 “More than 61 million unborn children have died as a result of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions. However, through the right-to-life movement's determination to protect mothers and their children, we continue to see evidence that our efforts to educate America about the unborn child's humanity, and our efforts to enact protective pro-life legislation, are having a tremendous impact in moving our nation away from Roe and Doe's deadly legacy.” - Carol Tobias, National Right to Life president
