I feel certain there are some who will be shaking their heads at my partisan nerve to imply that one political party (Democrat) is better than the other (Republican) for single women and their families (i.e., the nation) but if you understand the constitutional general welfare concept of this country then you understand that our Founding Fathers believed the health and welfare of the nation, including single moms and their children, to be so critical to the survival of the nation that they codified it in the United States Constitution and that is a value/principle Democrats subscribe to NOT Republicans.

Once women decide they are a go, this link will provide the information needed to get it done.
