    Single Moms

    Ok, so I have decided to take my Infant Mortality Rate to another level.

    Lets take a look at the states with the HIGHEST # of single mothers, or unwed mothers.

    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom/s.../unmarried.htm

    Top 10 States
    1. Mississippi
    2. Louisiana
    3. New Mexico
    4. Nevada
    5. Delaware
    6. Alabama
    7. Florida
    8. South Carolina
    9. West Virginia
    10. Arkansas

    Now let's take a look at the top 10 states for HIGHEST Poverty Rates
    https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/...erty-rate.html

    1. Mississippi
    2. New Mexico
    3. Louisiana
    4. Alabama
    5. Kentucky
    6. Arkansas
    7. Georgia
    8. District of Columbia
    9. West Virginia
    10 Tennessee

    And many of these same states above are wanting to restrict access for women to have abortions ..

    According to abort73.com 25% of woman have abortions because they are not ready for a child and 23% because they can't afford the child.


    Why is it the states with the highest single mothers, and highest poverty rates are inline with the highest infant mortality rates as well??

    And why is it the majority of these states are Republican??

    Re: Single Moms

    In case you all were wondering where the deadbeat dads hang out ...

    1. Missouri


    The Show Me State is prime habitat for men who don’t show up. Your deadbeat dad might be living their now, probably creepily looking at photos of your friends on Facebook and rating them on their attractiveness.


    2. Louisiana


    The man who was supposed to set an example of hard work for his kids might be busy not working in Louisiana.


    3. Florida


    There are millions of divorced men in Florida, but is one of them the dad who’s a decade late on his promise to take the training wheels off your bike? It’s possible.


    4. Illinois


    Whatever Illinois bar he’s drinking in tonight he’s most certainly not drinking out of a “World’s #1 Dad” coffee mug.


    5. Indiana


    That deadbeat dad of yours might be in an Indiana pawn shop right now, probably hawking the last of the family heirlooms.


    6. Iowa


    Maybe the reason he forgot your birthday again is because he blacked out drunk at the county fair and lost his job as a carny.


    7. Oklahoma


    The gambling options are ample in Oklahoma, as are your dad’s excuses for not sending his child support check again.


    8. Tennessee


    All your dad’s exes may live in Texas, but that’s not why he hangs his hat in Tennessee. It’s because there are plenty of other people there working on their 4th marriage.


    9. Arizona


    While the thought of that irresponsible loser wandering lost in the Arizona desert has a certain appeal to it, he’s probably just playing online poker on his phone in a Jack in the Box men’s room.


    10. Ohio


    If your dad is hiding out in Ohio, hopefully his multi-decade losing streak is cheering up Cleveland Browns fans.

    Re: Single Moms

    Missouri, the #1 state for deadbeat dads passed new abortion bill yesterday. Banning abortions past 8 weeks ... lol ...

    Missouri is #22 in poverty rate, and #24 for unwed mothers.

    They must be wanting to climb the charts ... lol

    The biggest mistake in US history was allowing the confederacy to rejoin the union.

    Re: Single Moms

    Patti, Bimpy, Justa, Woodman, and any other Republican that supports a ban on birth control doesn't even have any FACTS to back up their opinions.

    All they care about is controlling others. Period.

    I am waiting for them to show up so I can begin posting more facts for them ...

    Clearly, these single moms are paid actors.

    As an aside, there are plenty of churches that have extensive programs to serve single mothers.
    Perhaps, instead of ranting about the situation, one could volunteer to assist in these programs.

    Or how about create a workforce FOR MOTHERS so they can afford these babies on their own, regardless if dad sticks around??

    I'm not sure what "create a workforce" means, but if it means create an economy where people can work and afford children, I'm all for it, but I'm also for responsible reproduction, wherein you accept responsibilities for your actions and deal with them, other than eliminating them.

    Our church, which is quite small, runs two ministries to help out women who decide to carry to full term, referred to us by the local pregnancy center.
    One, which is quite successful, is a "closet" we run every week for a couple hours and distribute perfect clothing and other supplies to new Moms.
    The other is a mom education program, where new mothers bring their kids for a couple hours each week, and learn the basics of education, nutrition etc.
    My wife, who used to be a labor and delivery nurse, teaches the nutrition part component.

    I teach budget and finance in a completely different organization that is multi-church funded, and everyone who attends, at least for the last two years, is a single mom.

    There are tons of volunteer opportunities in this area.
