What I was saying was that my daughters are 9 and 6. And so if, at the age of 12 or 13, they made what I would consider to be a mistake, in having sex or unprotected sex, and ended up getting pregnant I think that statistically we know 12- or 13-year-olds who are having children are much more likely to be impoverished, are much more likely to have health problems, are much more likely to have trouble raising that child.
No kidding. 12 years old! Truly troubling.
"they made what I would consider to be a mistake, in having sex or unprotected sex"
I'm pretty sure that I heard a "corrective pause" instead of an "or" there, indicating that having sex at that age wouldn't be the "mistake", but having "unprotected sex" would be. Wouldn't want to cast judgement on 12-13 yr olds having "responsible sex".
