Letter: Poverty often rooted in immoral behavior

Poverty often rooted in immoral behavior

How often we read News articles concerning impoverished children. Has anyone undertaken a study lately on the real causes of poverty? Perhaps it is time to address one huge source – families without fathers.

There is so much promotion of immoral living. Young women are assured of government support by having out-of-wedlock children, who then become the innocent victims of poverty.

Before electing to have children, marry first. And by the way, hold the absentee “boyfriends” and spouses accountable to provide sufficiently for the families they have fathered.
