I agree 100%.
Problem is, kids aren't "raised" as much any more, they are "befriended".
Since fewer parents do their job now than used to do, I would prefer to see as few "unwanted" pregnancies as possible. I am really torn on it's being available to minors, but I would rather more people use BC than fewer. I don't get why there are more baby mommas and baby daddies than ever now though there is also much more freedom and availability and less stigma associated with getting BC at a young age. Heck, there's even less stigma with getting abortions than there was years ago. That's why I don't think it's a matter of "unwanted" with most of these pregnancies, it's a status thing or a lifestyle CHOICE. It involves the lives and the wallets of other people besides just the baby momma or daddy and that's a huge problem to me.
DING DING DING..
If there is a child born, the government will give them some money, this is widely known.
These women don't care if they are pregnant, or if they have kids. My mother and father beat into me to not have kids until well into my life....that never escaped me, and I was active, but careful.
How can many of the parents of the kids that are pregnant at 17 tell their kids that when they were in the same boat 18 years before.....
