Down in the lower left corner of this morning's USA Today is a color graph.  You know, the same corner the editors place interesting trivia like how many people studiously follow Snooki's escapades.

This morning's fun fact, however, was a register of the percentage of US births to unmarried females.  The figures since 1990 are:

1990:  28%
1995:  32.2%
2000:  33.2%
2005:  36.9%
2010:  40.8%

The data for 2012 are not yet available, but does anyone care to bet the trend is in the other direction?

This is not a disaster waiting to happen.  This is already a disaster.

God help us.


  1. All the more shocking, in some ways, is the fact that fewer than 8% of those births are actually to unwed mothers 18 or younger. So, a whopping 92% of those unmarried women giving birth are "mature" adults!

  2. I'm afraid this doesn't bother the American Left at all, in fact they encourage it. Unmarried mothers are in most cases dependent on the government for something, the kind of dependence that results in a vote for the party of government, i.e., the Democrats.
