Teens Lured Into Pregnancy
Toronto Sun ^ | November 18, 2005 | Tom Godfrey

Posted on 11/18/2005 3:46:38 PM PST by zaxxon

A North York church group is fighting to curb the alarming rate of unplanned pregnancies among high school girls living in west-end housing complexes.

Members of the Abundant Life Pentecostal Church on Dixon Rd. said they're concerned for the girls and their fatherless babies. They are aware of one youth who has impregnated more than a dozen schoolgirls.

"Some of these studs have made 10 or more girls pregnant," said Pastor Al Bowen. "Many others have made two or three pregnant."

Bowen and volunteers of the Kuriou Foundation have been conducting outreach for 15 years in housing complexes in Jane-Finch, Rexdale and Jamestown Cres.

The group is trying to change the thinking of some residents, who accept the high rate of single black teens getting pregnant.

Bowen said children born without a father figure tend to gravitate to crime. He said more than half of the 47 men shot to death in Toronto this year were from single-parent families.

Hey, it is socialism! Free health care, free apartment for life, welfare for life.

All you have to do to get on this life-long gravy train is get pregnant!

"A young man who is the father to children by several women is seen as a hero by his peers," Williams said."

And people wonder why poverty programs are a failure


The Circle of poverty is complete.

One way or another, they just can't stop shooting their guns, can they? Socialism is a wonderful thing. It is Bush's fault.

Yeah, and I know what all the girlies are saying...

Loose morals are one thing, but there's no helping stupidity.

And, this...."Among those Bowen counsels is a mother who became pregnant at age 13 and managed to graduate from high school. She is now a grandmother."

(1) I wonder what race the boys are and (2) what age and race the girls are.

My sister has a child with a black guy; nephew is #3 of 7 from this idiot, all different mothers, and only 1 with a black woman (the last, whom he married). There is a certain underground culture amongst the blacks where the goal is to impregnate as many white women as possible.

Before anyone jumps on me, I've dated black women in the past, so this is not about inter-racial dating. It's about this "hip-hop culture" crap that is part of what is wrecking our country.

Well, we know where it's not happening:

Yeppers; that is what the Toronto politicoes claim. "If only the nasty, mean spirited, irresponsible, LOUSY NEIGHBOR, George W. Bush, would end the U.S. gun culture, and stop those EVIL guns from crossing into Canada, Canadians would stop killing each other."

Less is more. These girls would have a more abundant life, if they had less abundantly produced life.

"Less is more."

Less life around to compete with those of us that made it? Doesn't sound very pro-life.

"These girls would have a more abundant life, if they had less abundantly produced life."

If the important thing is the lifestyle of the mother, then we're back to sounding not very pro-life. And what about the life they produced? That's a good thing, right?

Round up these studs, identify them as the father by DNA tests and get a court order for child support. If they're out of work, then have the courts threaten them with jail time like they would any other man failing to pay child support.

I'm on my second marriage, and because of my first divorce, I have paid between one and two hundred thousand dollars in child support. They threaten to take your license and lock you in jail if you do not pay out here in California. I cringe at the thought of having ten kids from 10 different moms.


Why in the hell do these guys get a pass?!

Because they're black?

OF all the reasons to get out of child support I haven't heard this one yet. What gives?

So responsibility means nothing? Vive le studs?

Promiscuity and fornication are a good thing, not to be discouraged, as long as it creates more life to "celebrate?

Does that make abstinance not pro-life, because is prevents conception?

I must say, I just do not understand what you are objecting to.

Objecting? No, just pointing out the irony of a group purporting to be for abundant life that isn't for a abundance of lives. You hear often around these parts that there is no such thing as overpopulation, that more is better.

But as we have seen, that isn't necessarily true.

As you put it, sometimes less is more, but that's hardly prolife. There are contradictions at work here.

Loose morals are symptom of a lack of character, not intelligence.
