This will have exponential effect upon future father involvement as it is the case that boys who themselves grew up without a father are more likely not to commit to fatherhood themselves. Mr. President, fatherlessness creates fatherlessness and fathers create fathers.
Mr. President, studies show that boys without fathers fare much worse in overall health, education, well being and general life outcome than girls from the same home. They have lower academic achievement, higher crime rates, higher gang membership rates and suicide rates. A society of underachieving young men from fatherless homes do not make adequate husbands for the nations daughters. Strengthening fatherhood strengthens the nation’s sons and by doing so adds to the above listed exponential effect of laying the foundation for strong families and the growth of father inclusion and marriage. Strong young men make strong families. Implimenting pro fatherhood laws will both increase the quality of men to choose from in terms of boosting overall male health and thus acievement but also improve the likelihood that these men will invest in fatherhood themselves seeing as it is they had a father present in their lives.
Mr. President, Please observe the graph below as well. Do you see the reset in the trend momentum of single mother births beginning in 1993? This is when welfare reform took place and government actually created incentives for women not to be supported by government husband and to get a job. With the added burden of having to work, women created relationships with men to do so for them instead, men that could potentially be fathers to their children sir. I ask you this, imagine if we created more responsibilities and liabilities for women both as to with who and in what circumstances they choose to conceive a child? I propose that giving women the responsibilities of an adult and liabilities for their choices we could further reduce the single mother birth rate and in fact possibly create a declining trend momentum in female deadbeats who divorce and abandon their family, lechery, irresponsibility and overall whoredom. We can thereby reduce fatherlessness as well.
