Commenting on the rise of “breadwinner moms,” Fox News host Eric Bolling speculated the socioeconomic development would result in more abortions.
“If you read into that study… the reason is exactly what we’ve been talking about right here, the breakdown of the American family,” he said on Fox’s The Five. “The American family is breaking down. Women are forced to go out and be the breadwinners for families and that is why the number is skewed higher now — single moms.”
“Here is another offshoot of that,” Bolling continued. “If you’re a single mom, breadwinner of the family, and you get pregnant aren’t we pushing towards more abortions? It seems like we are.”
Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, thePew study found the United States was home to about 13.7 million mothers who were the primary source of income for their households. Roughly, 63 percent of those “breadwinner moms” were single mothers.
