Are fathers optional? by Amy Tuteur, M.D.

Judging by their behavior, American women appear to think that fathers are optional. According to the recently published birth statistics (Births: Final Data for 2006), the proportion of births to unmarried women has reached 38.5%, the highest rate ever recorded.

… more than ¼ of white children, ½ of Hispanic children, and almost ¾ of black children were born to mothers who did not feel that marriage was necessary. Since marriage reflects the commitment of mother and father to stay together permanently, it means that a large proportion of women chose to give birth without taking steps to make sure that the father would live with his child and be a permanent presence in his or her life.

The loss of a parent, through abandonment or divorce breaks a child’s heart. It is unspeakably self indulgent for a parent to think that he or she has a right to break a child’s heart merely to pursue his or her own fulfillment.

Lesenswert ist auch der Kommentarbereich, in dem die Autorin, eine Gynäkologin und Geburtshelferin, konsequent ein Musterbeispiel für unerschütterliche Unbeeindrucktheit von allen zeitgeistigen Opportunismen narzißtischer Art gibt. – Erholsam!
