1. Blank, Rebecca (1995). “Teen Pregnancy: Government Programs are Not the Cause” Feminist Economics, Vol 1, No. 2 (summer): 47-58
Ms. Blank has researched data concerning the rise in birth rates of children born out of wedlock caused by the decline in child births by married women. Her interest was to determine if there is a relationship between the ages of the women bearing these children and if they are on, or enter into a government assistance program. Many blame public assistance payments on the increase in out-of-wedlock births, and Ms. Blank set out to dispel the correlation between pregnancy and welfare programs not just for teens, but for other women as well. Her findings indicate that the changes are not a result of public assistance programs, but rather they relate to economic and social changes which are affecting all women of all ages and all income levels. Her conclusion is that the elimination of public assistance for teen mothers is unlikely to change the occurrence of pregnancies among teens.
2. Burtless, Gary. (1994). “The Employment Prospects of Welfare Recipients.” Working Paper, Brookings Institute (August)
Mr. Burtless discusses the various methods used to help individuals leave the welfare system in terms of a “welfare reform goal of moving mothers who rely on welfare into private-sector employment” (Burtless, page 1). Apparently this noble effort is also affected by job qualifications, obstacles to work outside the home, the list of desirable jobs as well as the ability of the job market to essentially take in new workers at low skill level jobs. His article examines each of these factors in terms of how probable it will be that they will be successful in the welfare recipients’ search for employment. The article concludes with his opinion that skill deficiencies are not a definite barrier to employment by unskilled teens.

Children are suffering because the U.S. Welfare system has failed them. Mr. Fagan and Mr. Rector write of how there is great support in the defense of continuing to grow the welfare system and harsh critics against those who seek to reform it and begin again. They refer to the Stand for Children rally held in Washington in June that should have called attention to the horrific conditions of America’s children, but was more a rally to seek funds to expand the system and simply ignore the plight of the children who grow up in the system. They claim and back up that claim that the system was flawed initially and that the children it was meant to save only know that system including teens who see the bearing of children as a means to continue the lives that they know.

Research and a report on the possibility of a shortage of marriageable men by Lichter et al supports some conclusions with regard to race, economic independence, welfare status, family background and living arrangements insofar as women are remaining single (and still bearing children) due to a lack of quantity and quality of available men in their economic and other demographic levels. Their conclusions that a shortage of what they call “economically attractive men” (Lichter et al, page 781) has not had an effect on the decisions to bear children no matter if the woman is in her teens or if she is older. The implication is that teenage women are making the decision to bear out of wedlock children because there aren’t enough desirable men around to marry.

Single parent families are of major concern to policy makers. Supporting and raising children is generally the sole responsibility of parents. However, the state is concerned due to the rising poverty levels of families in the U.S. and the possible cause for worry over the children’s well being. If children are not the sole responsibility of parents, then public resources must play a part in this. The state has very limited programs to assist children, and are therefore very interested in stemming the tide of pregnancies among those whose history deems them a risk for public assistance. This wide field of potential welfare recipients includes teenage women who have had to choose having children out of wedlock. How will the government intervene is a focus of this paper.
