Anne Geddes is an Australian photographer with a knack for capturing babies. I like the way babies smell.
But yesterday, Business Insider magazine published some statistics that are alarming to me.
“Illegitimacy is becoming more widespread in the United States. More than half of all births to American women under 30 are born out of wedlock.”
More than half.
Quoting the New York Times, “Most researchers agree [illegitimacy] increases a child’s risk of emotional problems and falling into poverty.”
- 29 percent of white children are born to unmarried women.
- 53 percent of Latinos and
- 73 percent of all black children in America are born to a single parent.
It’s not our beautiful kids who are illegitimate,
if you ask me.
