95. "children do not have the intelligence, experience..." & therefore they must bear children?
Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 09:39 PM by wordpix
Take your pick: the unintelligent, inexperienced child gets pregnant as an 11-16 y.o. If the parent does not know/do anything about it/is a religious fanatic, the child will have to bear the child and become a young mother, most probably unemployed and on welfare due to a lack of skills and lack of money for child care.

Or, the newly pregnant girl is free to get Plan B, a safe, FDA approved drug, off the shelf.

I know what my preference is. And having taught in a school where "surprise" pregnancies are common, I can only tell you that most of the girls I know who get pregnant and have babies are low-skilled kids without a boyfriend, hs diploma, or prospects. Their babies are doomed from the start. Yes, there are exceptions---I know one girl living with her grandparents and they helped her out, along with her ex-boyfriend and his family. But most of these girls will continue to have major problems as young mothers, and their babies will be raised in poverty and ignorance.
