The old days weren't better. Couldn't match today's 40% illegitimate babies........

Thirty-six percent of the generation of Americans born from 1993 through 2012, the eldest of whom will turn 21 this year, were born to an unmarried mother.

During those 20 years, 80.83 million babies were born in the United States, and slightly more than 29 million of them were born to single women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And in each of the last six years — 2008 through 2013 — at least 40 percent of American babies were born to unmarried mothers, the CDC noted.

In 1940, only 3.8 percent of American babies were born to unmarried women, and by 1960 the figure was still just 5.3 percent.

But the percentages began to climb significantly in the mid-1960s, reaching 10 percent in 1969, 20 percent in 1983, and 30 percent in 1992.

The burgeoning rate of women giving birth outside marriage has economic repercussions. In 2012, the poverty rate for single-mother families was 40.9 percent, compared to 8.9 percent for married-couple families, according to the National Women's Law Center.

And 80 percent of homeless families are headed by single women with children.


  1. They are trying to wipe out religion, esp. Christian. Like the Ten Commandments
    in public areas where they have always set. But, the creepy Muslims can demand
    this and that, like daily prayers for three hours or can't transport alcohol or pork
    while working for a transport company and get away with it. As the Christian
    faith goes so does morals. And chaos is coming with it.
