How To Stop the Bastardy Epidemic (with divorce thrown in for good measure)

Virtue cannot be legislated, but behavior patterns can be reinforced or counteracted.  The wise legislator  devises laws to encourage responsible behavior and discourage behavior harmful to the individual and the community long-term.

1.  No male legally required to provide (financially or in any other way) for the support of a child conceived and born out-of-wedlock.

2.  State aid to unwed mothers cut off one year after the birth of the first illegitimate child.

3.  In no-fault divorces, full child custody automatically awarded to the father.

4.  Illegitimate offspring forbidden by law to receive any portion of the father's estate.

5.  The eldest surviving son conceived in wedlock required by law to receive a double portion of his father's estate (Deuteronomy 21:15-17).

So, you punish the child for the sins of the mother AND father. The illegitimate child is not made alone, daddy had a role. To not require the father to pay support is sinful and puts the burden on the taxpayer, although only for a year in your plan. Let the kid eat dirt after that. The plan is so heartless it leaves me amazed. Thankfully, God is the father of the fatherless.

I understand your concern for the welfare of the child. However, the current epidemic we are experiencing is the result of government welfare and overwhelming support for mothers, taking the role of the actual father away from the male.

Do you think children are better off because of welfare? Considering that an overwhelming number of our criminals come from single mother families, I'd say we aren't helping them at all. By continuing to support the immoral actions of the mother, we are condemning such children.

The author wishes to bring an end to this epidemic. While the method may be painful, it will certainly bring the best results. It's sad I know, but sometimes such things have to be done.
