    Some 40 percent of U.S. moms are unmarried

    ATLANTA, May 13 (UPI) -- The trend of U.S. mothers being unmarried was stable from the mid-1990s to 2002, but there was a steep increase from 2002 to 2007, health officials said.

    A report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics said from 1980 to 2007, the proportion of births to unmarried women in the United States has more than doubled, from 18 percent to 40 percent.

    Nearly one-third of births to women ages 25-29 were non-marital in 2007, up from one-fourth in 2002.

    The report also found:

    -- Birth rates for unmarried Hispanic women was 106 births per 1,000, non-Hispanic unmarried black women are 72 per 1,000 and non-Hispanic white women are 32 per 1,000

    -- The vast majority of teen mothers were unmarried. Among teens ages 15-17, 93 percent of births were non-marital in 2007, while among teens aged 18-19, 84 percent of births were non-marital.

    -- In 2007, 45 percent of births to women in their 20s were to unmarried women. Sixty percent of births to women aged 20-24 were non-marital in 2007, up from 52 percent in 2002.

    So does that mean 40% of US fathers are unmarried? Or at least not married to the mother/s of their children?

    Who cares anyway? Gettimg married is so gay.

    It means that America is being consumed by the people of the third worlds.
    The stats say mostly white people.

    That's so funny. Getting married is so gay. I love it.

    I think what this tells us is that straight people, ON THEIR OWN, have ruined the sanctity of marriage.

    They didn't need gays help.

    The usual internet forum response to this ABSOLUTE CRISIS of illegitimacy drowning this country is not surprising. To them its a big joke or even a "good thing." The pain and hurt of these tens upon tens of millions of children being denied the human right to a two parent family means nothing to the cliche anti-moral internet forum scum.

    It is not that they "have ruined the sanctity of marriage", they are not even getting married, thats the point.

    What this is ruining is childrens lives and Americas future.

    that's pretty funny given that the largest demographic of people on welfare are white single mothers.

    so much for abstinence only, eh?

    maybe THAT is what changed between 2002 and 2007.
