Unwed births are correlated with poverty, juvenile delinquency, drug use, high-school dropout.

And the unwed birth rate has been basically promoted and paid for by federal policies. Woodard says he understands why DeMint tended to avoid writing about some of these cultural issues in his later books. We can be sure that, under his leadership, the Heritage Foundation will remain staunchly conservative.

Americans today live in the greatest nation the world has ever known. Never before has a country been the producer, and beneficiary, of so much wealth and freedom. But with great success comes even greater responsibility. Part of the American legacy is to pass our values to our posterity, as well as to future generations in other nations.
To meet this responsibility, the next generation must understand what made America great, what is working, what is not working, and how to improve all the ideas that contributed to past success.
No factor is more important in this task than our freedom of speech. This right is both a means and an end to improving and strengthening the nation. Why We Whisper is about free speech in America, but not "freedom of speech" as it is often defined today. It is not the freedom to practice destructive behavior or to produce obscene material.
Restoring Our Right to Say It's Wrong
This book is about freedom of speech as it was intended by the visionaries who designed the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment empowers Americans to join the public and political debate with their ideas and values, including those traditional ideas and values that have made America great. No high school coach would dare take his team to church after the adverse publicity Coach Bowden received.
The use of courts to silence opponents is not new, of course.
The difference between today and Athens circa B. Take, for example, the case of the pregnant cheerleaders at Hempstead High School. Hempstead is a small community some forty miles north of Houston, Texas. All four girls were removed from the cheerleading squad. The student was immediately reinstated and allowed back on the sidelines for the Friday-night football games. The parents of the still-pregnant cheerleaders were outraged, and contended that the student who had the abortion should be in the stands with the pregnant cheerleaders. The community was thrown into a feeding frenzy of press coverage and controversy.

The school policy was clear about pregnancy but said nothing about students who had abortions. Like many school districts nationwide, Hempstead had not had to wrestle with questions of pregnant cheerleaders, or those who had abortions, because these students typically bowed quietly out of their high-profile positions. When the school board voted to oust the three remaining pregnant students from the cheerleading squad, the controversy became a magnet for activist groups and the national press. They attended a school-board meeting in October where they distributed material citing federal laws and court rulings upholding the rights of pregnant students to participate in public school extracurricular activities.
Parents and school-board members, who favored the policy of dismissal from the cheerleading squad, found themselves staring down the barrel of an expensive federal lawsuit in a small community just barely meeting its education budget. Discretion became the better part of valor in the confrontation, and the school board rethought its policy.
All the cheerleaders were allowed back on the squad.

The school board declared publicly that it was making the decision for financial reasons and could not afford a lawsuit.
