A new epidemic is permeating the culture today: fatherlessness.
Shocking statistics reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that 41 percent of all U.S. children are born to unmarried mothers.
In the black community, 72.3 percent of all children are born in homes without fathers, compared with 35.7 percent of white children.
The crisis of fatherlessness is sparking much concern among pro-life organizations, which seek to change these overwhelming figures and educate the public about what they say is “the most missing component of the national abortion debate: fathers!”
In collaboration with the Issues4Life Foundation, The Radiance Foundation has started a new billboard and website campaign entitled “Fatherhood Begins in the Womb!” featured on TooManyAborted.com, a website dedicated to teaching the public about abortion’s impact on the African-American community.
According to a statement, the movement hopes to detail the culture of abandonment that abortion has created by revealing the statistics of fatherlessness, single-parent poverty and the deterioration of married households in order to stop the destructive trend.
