Haircuts and Fatherhood Tips?: The Lessons 100 Barbershops Want to Give Men: Fatherlessness is one of the root causes of abortion. Eighty percent of African-American children grow up without a father in the home. We have a generation of young men who haven’t had good fathers, and therefore aren’t being prepared to become fathers themselves. Being a single mom in the black community is sadly common.
The Radiance Foundation reports: “According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 78% of all black households were led by two-parent married homes in the 1950s. In 1970, prior to Roe v. Wade, only 68% were. Today, only 28.7% of homes in the black community are led by married parents.” It’s all fruit of a perpetual cycle of brokenness.
We in the pro-life movement must find ways to address these issues. We have to help men become better fathers. Our pro-life leaders should be spiritual fathers and mentors to those who have none. If we fight for children to live, we should also fight for fathers to care for them once they’re alive.
