Dr. Drew Dispels Sen. Glenn Grothman's Vilification of Single Parents.

Republican policies have not only brought about the Great Recession, joblessness, outsourcing, high gas prices (they won't reign in speculation and saber rattle in the Middle East) and a massive increase in poverty, but they're now trying to blame everybody else for creating this mess.

Like State Sen. Glenn Grothman, who is threatening to withdraw funds from the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board if they don't publicly bash single parents as likely abusers. That's all they need on top of everything else. Pile on Sen. Grothman.

Since this story has hit a nerve nationally, CNN's Dr. Drew had Glenn on as a guest, along with Prof. Emeritus Alan Sroufe who dismantles Grothman's argument. Poverty has everything to do with abuse, and lesser single parenthood.

Instead of pumping viagra out like candy...how about maybe making a form of birth control men could take? That way the jackass that likes sowing his seeds and walking away can also be responsible.
