Federal incentives exist to make children fatherless

Federal incentives exist to make children fatherless

 

In this article Phyllis Schlafly asks why Congress has appropriated taxpayer money to give perverse incentives that break up families and deprive children of their fathers. She states that the built-in financial incentives in the current child-support system have expanded the tragedy of fatherless children from the welfare class to millions of non-welfare divorced couples.

 

This article does not address the taking of children into state care but it is presented here because of the similarities between the system in which children are deprived of their fathers and the system in which children are deprived of their parents and families when the social services place them in foster homes among total strangers.
