Jack Kemp

As Phyllis noted, last year 41 percent of all babies born in the U.S. (including 53 percent of babies born to women under 30) were born outside of marriage.  “It is obvious,” said Schlafly, “that when the mother of these children has no husband to support her and her babies, she calls on Big Brother Government.”

You and I then pay the bills for welfare, after school programs, Head Start and a host of other expensive and largely unsuccessful federal efforts to replace the nuclear family.

“It's not poverty that causes broken families; it's the absence of marriage that causes poverty and puts kids below the designated poverty line. Social issues cause fiscal expenses,” concludes Schlafly.
