Ross Douthat Brings Inconvenient Truths About Abortion’s Effect on Men – Opinion

Anyone who dares enter the murky waters of the abortion debate, such as Theodore Roosevelt and others like them, will be swallowed by it. Moskoe-strömAn Edgar Allan Poe fairy tale. This is especially true for those who dare speak the truth about abortion’s fallout, as the fast and frazzled liberal fury over New York Times writer Ross Douthat’s observation today (May 6th) regarding the actual effect abortion has had on men since Roe v. Wade shows.

Douthat’s assertions should be easy enough to investigate. We’ll start with the first, namely, men becoming less likely to find a spouse.

There were 60.47 billion men in the United States who were of married age as of 1971. That’s 23.16%. Of those 60.47 million men, 14,000,000 were unmarried. The United States was home to 129.3 millions men who were married by 2021. 47.76 percent of that total was single.

Next, fatherhood. In 1970, the average family’s number was 3.58. It was 3.13 last year. Despite the fact that no one thought of such things back in 1970s, the Census Bureau reports that 61.6 percent (15 and over) were fathers in 2019.

Are there families that have no fathers? It’s ugly.

More than 64 million Americans identify as fathers. Of that number, 26.5 millions men live in homes with a spouse who has children below the age 18.

U.S. Census Bureau data shows that 22% fathers raise 3+ children below the age 18-year mark, with every child being a biological relative. Only 2% are raised by fathers in homes owned or rented by a family member.

2.25 million fathers are single-parent households. Only 400,000 fathers were in this position in 1970. A single father is responsible for 18% single-parent household statistics, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Men of working age are more likely to be in the labour force. It was 79% in 1970. According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, it will reach 68.8% by 2025.

In summary, Douthat’s every assertion is correct.

The left will attempt to argue the statistics’ abortion connection. When presented against the reality, this argument collapses. Yes, it is impossible to draw a direct statistically-proven correlation between abortion’s increased availability, its use since Roe v. Wade as a satanic birth control technique, and the steadily increasing societal drumbeat of man hatred that has driven many men into withdrawal–both personally and professionally. However, applied common sense states that the additional weapon wielded by manipulative women of easily aborting a man’s child, regardless of his wishes, cannot have brought anything good to the relationship dynamic.

The collective fallout of our society’s acceptance of mass killing of unborn children is causing us all to suffer. We have sex without consequence, lives without value, and the left’s fevered embrace of all means, including direct violence, to maintain its “right” to murder. All the liberal whining about “you can’t prove that” does nothing to blunt Douthat’s truthful statement. Abortion is still what it was: an evil and unholy act. You can stop its easy availability sooner than you think.
