YoungLives Update
May 2011
The Need: Out of Wedlock
“In 2009, 41% of children born in the
USA were born to unmarried
mothers (up from 5% in 1960). That
includes 73% of non-Hispanic black
children, 53% of Hispanic children and
29% of non-Hispanic white children.
Those are not misprints.”
(“Our view on kids: When unwed births hit 41%, it's
just not right”: USA Today, January 25, 2011)
The Need: Out of Wedlock
The Need: Teen Pregnancies
One in 10 American babies are
born to a teen mother.
This represents the secondhighest teen birthrate among
developed nations. Only Bulgaria
has more teens having babies.
The Need: Teen Pregnancies
“…evidence is overwhelming that
children of single mothers —
particularly teen mothers — suffer
disproportionately high poverty
rates, impaired development and
low school performance.”

not right”: USA Today, January 25, 2011)
