In 2007 women set two records. Women gave birth to more children in that single year than at any other point in American history, beating the baby boom of 50 years ago. Single women set a record by accounting for 40 percent of those births.
And as you can probably guess from the title above, some people are not happy about that second record. One of those people would be Janice Crouse of Concerned Women of America who had this to say:
"There’s no stigma attached to having a child [out of wedlock] and there’s no price to pay, no consequence…in terms of your acceptance within society," Crouse observes. "Some schools even have special classes now for girls who get pregnant while they’re still in school.”
Crouse, of course, is “pro-life” and as many like her are prone to do, she simply cannot resist an opportunity to let it be known that her true beef with abortion is not about children being killed, but about women not being punished.
