Like millions of American children, particularly minority children, I grew up without a father.
Although my sibling and I turned out to be decent people, I can’t exactly say the same for other fatherless children. The statistics about fatherless children are shocking.
Children who grow up without fathers are five times more likely to commit crime, 10 times more likely to abuse drugs like meth or heroin, and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.
For young women who grow up without fathers, 71 per cent of them end up in teenage pregnancies -- continuing the cycle of fatherlessness.
Did you know that young men who grow up without fathers are 14 times more likely to become rapists?
Today, 73 per of African-American children don’t grow up with their fathers. For Hispanics, it’s at 53 per cent. For whites, it’s at 25 per cent.
But it wasn't always like this.
So what happened to fathers?
WATCH as I explain that the answer is rooted in liberal ideas about economics and culture.
If you or your partner are going to birth to life, then give that child what they deserve:
A loving mother and a loving father.
