Senator Singles Out Single Parents for Blame

Senator Singles Out Single Parents for Blame

If you're a single parent, state Senator Glenn Grothman (R) of Wisconsin disapproves of your lifestyle. Grothman is so sure that unmarried parenthood leads to child abuse and neglect that he wants the state of Wisconsin, where a third of all parents are single, to take a stand against it.

Grothman has written a bill that would require his state to pay for educational and public awareness campaigns that "emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect."

Forbes magazine's Rick Unger points out that Grothman's bill, Senate Bill 507, doesn't mention any other factors that contribute to child abuse and neglect, such as alcoholism, mental health problems, unemployment, or domestic violence among married couples. It only mentions single parenthood.
