I don’t have stats off the top of my head, but this report is saying that teen pregnancy is down. Okay, maybe it is. However, we have in the last couple of generations completely institutionalized the concept of out of wedlock pregnancy and broken homes and single mothers and other ad hoc living arrangements.
It’s not PC to talk about how we are raising so many of our children in less than ideal circumstances nowadays. So while teen pregnancy may be down, far more of the kids being born are not being raised in the best circumstances, with both mother and father in the home.
I know I just made a number of value judgements which you aren’t supposed to do in these politically correct times. Flame away.
That’s a statistic that can be manipulated, especially if the percentage of population that are in their teens in the country is lower than in the past. I wouldn’t worry about what Minitrue has to say about it; they’re counting on people having voluntary “memory holes” . . . the Innerparty doesn’t need to work as hard.
It breaks my heart every time I see or hear about broken homes and the kids involved. I really just want to strangle the so called adults.
I just cant understand how two people were in love enough to produce a child and now they can’t stand to live on the same planet with that person. Does the ex represent all the bad choices they have made?
