Teen Pregnancy Pact and Expert Guests

Teen pregnancy pact.  I don’t really understand this one.

I heard about this story Friday morning and find it interesting because it brings up a lot of sensitive issues. I have watched some of the news shows on CNN, etc… This is who the ‘expert’ guests believe are at fault:

  • Hollywood for making movies like Juno
  • Celebrities because all celebrities have babies now and it’s cool
  • The economy because parents are too tired from working extra hours to show affection to their kids and the kids want babies to show them affection
  • The schools fault because they only teach sexed freshman year

How about this one. Some people are not doing a good job parenting. Not much more to it then that. But at least none of the parents tried to name their children this.

A fallout of the story is the school’s doctor resigned/was fired because he was giving out birth control to some of the girls that came in after a string of twenty or more pregnancy tests in a matter of a week or two. That brings up the question of schools teaching and offering protection to students. This resulting in my favorite news quote.

A women was on CNN as an ‘expert’ and was asked about the teaching of protection. Her response; “It really wouldn’t have mattered in this case, these girls wanted to get pregnant. They would not have used condoms if they fell off the condom and landed in their lap.”

Hilarious.

I could totally be an ‘expert’ guest on some show. All you have to do is say something insightful/sarcastic/funny and just look good. I know enough about some issues to form a good opinion and I’ve got plenty of practice at the last part because that’s what I did at Georgia Tech.

‘Just sit in the back of meeting and look good’ I’m an expert at that.
