A pregnancy pact, say what?! Every time I read/watch the news there's always something new and bizarre that just proves our morals have been flushed down the toilet.

And! The media wants to blame it on movies like Juno. If you are stupid enough to believe that having a baby is all fun and games then you are really and truly an idiot. I just don't get what young people these days are thinking. If they really are watching movies and TV shows about young people having babies and thinking, "Oh, gee! Wouldn't that be fun?!" Then going out and getting pregnant on purpose...there's a lot that needs to be done about the way kids are being raised these days.

It's such a disappointment. And it scares me to death to think about what future my kids and their kids will be doing.

I read about this today as well. It kind of made me laugh because it's so absurd, but then I got sad because those babies won't have it easy one day.

However, from my psychologist point of view, it's astounding what must go on in these girls' brains. Especially since they apparently recruited some hobo to do the job. Natural selection? Say it ain't so.
Darwin would love this, I'm sure.

It's definitely a good reason i don't follow the news unless i hear it from others. I was boggled in my senior year of high school that kids didn't know a Period meant Stop. Then i was boggled that kids were so retarded that they'd choose to go to a movie to talk, rather than a coffee shop or denny's. Then boggled over 2nd graders with cellphones.

Eh. It's like blaming musicians for people killing people. They just don't want to admit that people can be stupid all on their own. "D: Not my Johnny!" "Not my little Alyssa!" - and i just want to nod and say "Yes. Your little stupid Johnny.. and Yes. Your little dumb Alyssa"(just an ex.)
There really should be a test required for trying to make babies.

How can they blame it on Juno? If anything it was how their parents raised them. I just wonder what goes on in the heads of 13-16 year olds anymore....

I blame it on right wing conservative christian taboo on anything sexual.
I also blame it on the lack of education on contraceptives and STDs.
Sex is part of life and reproduction and it needs to be taught.
I also blame parents for not talking to their kids about it and just expecting schools to be the only ones teaching anything about it.
I think the kids themselves can be blamed for part of it too. They know what they are doing, they just don't understand the consequences of their actions.
I think schools should give out BC and condoms to any student that asks for it.
I don't blame movies like Juno at all. I think that movie was made to create awareness about the situation not to promote it.

No I watched it a couple of days ago, but I also read it online, and it just blew me away all over again.
