Warning to Teens in MA, It's NOT in The Water!
17 teen girls from Gloucester, Massachusetts' high school are pregnant, according to Time Magazine. AND none of the sperminted teens are older than 16 years old! But wait, THAT'S NOT ALL, Concerned school officials trying to figure out why so many girls became preggers discovered that nearly half the expecting students confessed to making a pact to get pregnant and raise their babies together.
WTF???? Where are these kids parents??
The mag goes on to say that the girls who made the pregnancy pact reacted to the news that they were expecting with high fives and plans for baby showers. I guess that's one way to bond, DISH was just a cheerleader.
BUT....Wait. There's more insanity The principal of the high school reports, "We found out one of the fathers is a 24-year-old homeless guy." NICE!
So you have to ask at this point...why these teens would go out of their way to get pregnant?
The preggers 17 declined to be interviewed. It's been mentioned that the high school has done perhaps too good a job of embracing young mothers. Sex-ed classes end freshman year at Gloucester, where teen parents are encouraged to take their children to a free on-site day-care center. hhmm DISH'S words of advise to Gloucester High...STUPID STUPID STUPID!!
The Gloucester school committee reportedly plans to vote later this summer on whether to provide contraceptives. Too little too late?? The truth of the matter is that won't do much to solve the issue of teens WANTING to get pregnant.
Someone needs to do an anti-Juno flick…fast! Teen pregnancy is not a good 'trend'. It's not to be taken lightly!
