TeaParty Republicans are going over the brink! Santorum is against Birth Control and Sex before marriage. Limbaugh called a law student a "Slut" for utilizing her 1st ammendment rights to support Birth Control.
Now, a TeaParty Republican Wisconsin Senator is proposing a Law That Declares Single Parenthood Child Abuse!
State senator Glenn Grothman (see red-faced picture) has introduced Senate Bill 507, which formally considers single parenthood a contributing factor to child abuse. If passed into law, SB507 requires the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to consider non-marital parenthood a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.
According to the bill:
Section 1. 48.982 (2) (g) 2. of the statutes is amended to read: 48.982 (2) (g) 2. Promote statewide educational and public awareness campaigns and materials for the purpose of developing public awareness of the problems of child abuse and neglect. In promoting those campaigns and materials, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.
Section 2. 48.982 (2) (g) 4. of the statutes is amended to read:
48.982 (2) (g) 4. Disseminate information about the problems of and methods of preventing child abuse and neglect to the public and to organizations concerned with those problems. In disseminating that information, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.
Single parents make up a third of Wisconsin parents, The Annie E. Casey Foundation reports. And according to a 2009 report from the US Census Bureau, there are approximately 13.7 million single parents across the U.S., with single mothers outpacing single fathers five to one. These TeaParty Republicans want to CRIMINALIZE ALL OF THEM! So much for their saying Government should be out of people's business!
