I am so sick of seeing teenage girls have kids, and then our tax money supports them. I’m all for helping people in these hard times, but these girls are nothing but skanky trash. Half of the girls like this just keep having more and more kids to get more money from the government, and I don’t think they deserve it at all.
I think it’s the parents’ faults. Who let their teen daughter roam around town unsupervised? I think if a teenager gets pregnant (or gets someone else pregnant [minus in the case of rape]) the parents should be held responsible. If they were doing their jobs then their kids wouldn’t be popping out babies.
what makes me sick is that there are irresponsible, immature, young girls out there getting pregnant when there are couples out there who have a decent relationship and stable finances and can’t get pregnant no matter how much they try.
The frontal lobe of the brain is the decision making center of the brain. It controls impulsiveness and aids in being able to see long term consequences to actions. It is also not fully developed until your early twenties. That is not to say that this is the sole reason for so many pregnant teenagers, there are many other factors including the over sexualized culture that we live in and also ignorance about birth control and other forms of protection. In saying this it is pitiable what these girls have done to their lives. Teenagers live with a “it could never happen to me” mindset in part due to their underdeveloped frontal lobe. That is why so many adults look back on their teenage years and think why would I do that? It’s because they are not at the point in their development to think that way. Teenagers need to be more educated on contraception because teenagers are having sex. Not to say all of them are but this picture is proof of how some teenagers are extremely irresponsible about it.
@loki- Your terminology is offensive and only shows what a low class, uneducated, ignoramus you are. You assume that the child is part black and from behind your computer screen call it a “mud”. How about you do something else with your life other than trying to perpetuate stereotypes? And since you’re making bets on the ethnicity of the child, of whose father you know nothing about, I’ll bet that you are a spineless bigot who has nothing better to do with his miserable life than insult people on the internet.
Holy crap, not one positive thing about these women is said on here. How about the strength they have in actually going through with the pregnancy and not aborting the child day 1? How about the fact they’re probably mocked all day and looked down upon, even though they’re still willing to have and take care of these kids? Fuck all of you for being stereotypical judgmental bastards.
No, I don’t have kids, no I was never pregnant in my teens.
I think we can thank MTV for shows such as 16 and Pregnant as well as Teen Mom…. They are just glorifying having children at a young age…. this makes me sick!!! Now I have to work not only to support myself but 4 teenagers who more than likely will not get a degree and will not be able to support themselves let alone their children
Truth is safe sex is being taught in high schools. Kids just don’t give a damn. They aren’t taught to be responsible by their parents. They sit in front of tvs and computers all day.
And this way they are all set to get on welfare. Have a baby and your taken care of no matter what. Even if you can work and take care of yourself.
WOW…wadda bunch of losers! They all look so proud too. Don’t they know babies are a LIFE LONG COMMITMENT? It doesn’t end when they’re 21 either. Who’s gonna support them and their children??? STUPID…STUPID…STUPID.
@Hibiscus. We can thank Democrats for perpetuating the welfare state, which promotes this kind of behavior. They didn’t need education in how babies happen, they did this on purpose. The education they need is being forced to provide for the little bastards on their own, instead of out of MY wallet. You Democrats need to take some responsibility for you own actions.
Getting the “sex talk” in Kindergarten would actually be a great idea. Education is what keeps kids from doing stupid things like getting pregnant when they’re young, not lack of education. Don’t be ignorant.
This is sad. These girls have no idea how hard their life is going to be. They aren’t trash, just uneducated. And I hope the people who are commenting that our money goes to taxes to support them are 100% pro-choice or else you guys are fucking hypocrites. In my experience, those who are anti-abortion and anti-contraceptives are also anti-take my money which are two totally opposing points of view. They are unreasonable.
Why are they smiling? Don’t they know that they will probably be living on welfare for the rest of their lives because they thought it was cool to get pregnant? I am sorry but I want the little chihuahua dog to be the status symbol again, not a baby.
Being young and pregnant isn’t the end of the world. Being stupid, young, and pregnant isn’t the best combination. I don’t personally know them so I can’t say either or for them… But I really do believe parents and teachers should inform children at a young age about safe sex and abstinence. It is an adult and “taboo” subject, that’s what makes it interesting, along with their sex drives starting up before a fully mature brain.
The problem is when parents are too embarrassed to have sex talks with their kids and the kids (being curious) go find out what’s the big deal by themselves.
You all are hateful, rude assholes. And before you go assuming about how much the government helps, do your fucking research on welfare and quit being a dumbfuck. No matter who has a child, it could be under any circumstance such as rape, a child is always a blessing and at least they have the decency to take responsibility for their actions and take care of their baby instead of killing it. All of you are a bunch of judgmental assholes and it’s people like YOU who ruin society!
