U.S. Senator John Kennedy has written an op-ed piece to the Washington Examiner entitled “Please stop having children you aren’t willing to raise.” In the piece, Kennedy implores parents that if they are drug users or if the child would be born to a fatherless house, to think twice about bringing lives into the world.
Kennedy says too many parents are failing their children these days in Louisiana. He says thousands of children are in the state’s foster care system and those who fail to find a good foster care home end up struggling in life.
Kennedy says groups launch public awareness campaigns to encourage people to recycle their soft drink cans, stop smoking and wear seat belts. He says maybe it would be in order launch campaigns to encourage people to raise their children.
