American men are disappearing

info@islandpacket.comNovember 27, 2013 

Many years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, ruled that a married woman has no obligation to inform her husband of her intent to have an abortion. In the sublime mystery of procreation, the man is rendered null and void by the highest court in the land. He's not even a potted plant. He is zero.

In modern society, there may be no one as relentlessly irresponsible as the predator male. He's all sex and virility and no accountability.

In American today, 90 percent of all single-parent families are headed by women. The men have gone. They father children and vanish.

The National Commission on Children found: "The period from 1974 to the present marks the first time in the nation's history that children have been the poorest group in society."
