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 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."
Never miss a local story.
