A Tale of Two Conferences...On Teen Pregnancy

A Tale of Two Conferences...On Teen Pregnancy | teen abstinence | Scoop.it

“"If you want to fail in life, if you want to end up being on Medicaid -- CHIPS and Medicaid and food stamps the rest of your life -- if you never want to have a career, then all you've got to do is drop high school and have a baby," [MS Governor Phil] Bryant said. "And I can almost assure you that's what's going to happen to you."

 

… Okay, then. The article describes two symposia held on the two competing views on how teen pregnancy can be prevented: abstinence-only sex ed or a more comprehensive curriculum. More interesting, though, are Governor Bryant’s comments on the subject, which are rather revealing of his true attitude on the issue.

dajha bishop's insight:

most teens that fall off the road of abstinence does not know that getting pregnant at a young age and having a child is harder then it seems even if the government is supplying money and medicare for the child and their mother and/or father.

Teen Moms are offered a good amount of free money just because they are a teen mom. They are offered free medical insurance for themselves and baby, food for themselves and baby, and money. Some argue this is not fair for teen moms to be offered all this because it is there faults but some say that it is fair and it helps a teen get back on there feet. This does not mean that you are going to live on welfare and all that for the rest of your life, as some will argue. Some choose this route but others choose to go to college or to work too. Not everyone is the same.
