Four out of every ten new mothers are not married to the father of their child. The percentage of teenage girls giving birth to children is rising steadily. Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies end in abortion. Half of all pregnancies in our country end in out-of-wedlock births or in abortion. Infanticide and illegitimacy are pure social corrosives. The family, the truest “social safety net,” has been beaten black and blue by advocates of sexual amorality.
First off, the term “sexual amorality” is problematic. What amounts to sexual amorality? ANY sexual contact before marriage? Sex with more than one person? What are the boundaries?
If you can find it within yourself to get past that slippery slope, you next come upon the next problematic term: “family.” What is a family? I assume that this author considers it one man and one woman. Taking the hot-button homosexuality issue out of it, what about widowed parents, divorced people, grandparents/aunts/uncles/etc. raising kids, foster kids, adopted kids… the list goes on.
Do you see the problem?
