Because it couldn’t be the fault of several years of abstinence-only nonsense. What a ridiculously slanted piece this is. Why is teen pregnancy still being framed as the girl’s “fault”? No mention of the young men’s responsiblity in creating a pregnancy or how their lives will be affected legally or emotionally. Deborah Robert’s asinine shock and her shaming attitude towards these girls is absurdly comical in this day and age. No, having a kid and keeping it at such a young age is not the smartest thing in the world. Yes, the odds are stacked against them. But do they really need Ms. Roberts to make them feel worse about their situation? And the way that the mention of abortion in any context is avoided at all cost is ridiculous. At the end of the piece when Diane Sawyer asks Ms. Roberts how many girls choose adoption, Roberts replies only a small percentage of girls opt for adoption and that half of pregnant girls keep their babies and the other half “lose their babies, other things happen”. Other things happen? You mean like abortion, Deborah? Jesus Christ, I know abortion rights are getting chiseled away but is it now a crime to mention the word?
