If we cannot get an unwed nurse to use birth control is it a wonder teenage pregnancy is out of control?

Why do my comments never get posted?

Probably because you come off like an asshole. Just sayin’.

Congrats to AJ and Abigail.

Stacey- You’re making two big assumptions. One, that the pregnancy was unplanned (people DO sometimes try to have children! ;)), and two, that they weren’t using birth control if it was. Bottomline: Unless you were in the room when that precious girl was conceived, you have no way of knowing what circumstances the pregnancy occured under!

I also want to say that it’s fine if you don’t agree with having children out of wedlock, Stacey. It’s not my cup of tea either. But it’s a matter of personal choice, and it’s not our place to decide who can and can’t have children (and just we’re clear, I’m talking about adults that are prepared for the responsibility of raising said children, not teenagers who aren’t!).

Who is “we” and why are unwed adults required to use birth control? That’s pretty odd!
