    The author hit the nail squarely on the head. What we need is more healthy families where the bio-dad and bio-mom live under the same roof and teach their children principles that help ensure they will make the choices which lead to success and happiness.

    Those who advocate the "anything goes" morality can't understand why a 16-year old mother just can't get that high paying job she deserves.

    Hey Mike - perhaps you should actually read the story instead of blindly commenting based on the headline.

    Just a suggestion......

    Who is to blame?

    Is society at fault?

    "Who" is society?

    Is that "society" not FAMILIES that have taken short cuts?

    Is that "society" not PARENTS who have looked to their own needs instead of be "parents"?

    Is that "society" not GRANDPARENTS who have failed to teach their own children how to raise grandchildren?

    Government cannot save families when families look to government instead of to God.

    God instituted marriage. Marriage enabled parents to bring children into the world. Children require responsibility. When the chain is broken, politicians hurry to the front of the line to tell us that they have a program, not ordained of God, but just as effective. They are liars. They have no "better" program. What they have is the means to tax us so that they can repay those who put them in office.
    Why do we continually fall for the sick rhetoric of politicians who tell us to look to Washington, instead of listening to God for advice on how to conduct our lives and for advice on how to raise our families?
