Australia's Single Mums
controversy over Australia's Single Mums being fuelled by a political
party leader, best described as an attention seeking media
megalomaniac, is an attack on all Australian women.

anyone to say that the Australian single mum is a drain on the Australian
economy is simply not in touch with his or her faculties.
The single mum faces daily, one continual fight for the survival of her child or
children at enormous cost to herself. The emotional trauma and exhaustion
suffered by the single mum has been described as horrific.
it can be said that there are some who have had children for the wrong reasons,
but the majority must not be condemned for the actions of a few.
must be remembered that there are tens of thousands of single mums involved in
loving, tender and stable relationships with supportive partners, as a matter of
choice. These relationships are built on all the foundations of our society,
should one group of 'Aussie Mums' be treated any different to another because of
a broken relationship?
woman who enters into a relationship with a man knows perfectly well the
implications of unprotected sex, but so does the man.
the 'possibility' becomes a 'reality', it is inevitable that the expectant mum
is usually the only one around to take the responsibility.
So who is
to blame? History tells us, the male, the female, neither or both!
ONLY one not to blame is the child, who ultimately would be the one to suffer
should financial assistance not be available for their upbringing.
Australian birth rate is currently running at approximately 1.8 whereas ideally
it should be in excess of 2.1, which raises the question:
is more socially acceptable...
For those genuinely concerned with Australia's economy, may I suggest you contemplate Australia's Unemployment or Tax Reform and leave Australia's Single Mums to raise their children without the added burden of moral denigration.
