The social sanctions against illegitimacy which prevailed until quite recently represented sound, protective principles. The erosion of social sanctions and the absence of economic sanctions have had predictable consequences - none of them good news for taxpayers struggling to raise a family in traditional fashion. I hope I am not alone in supporting the Government's efforts to make young women think twice before choosing to become a lone parent.
