It might be because they are having sex.

Probably because they've had no raising of their own and if they're not teen girls knocked up then there are several I know that are barely 25-28 years old working on having their 3 and 4 kids and don't work, LIVING OFF GOVERNMENT BENEFITS!! pathetic trash!!!!! I guess girls like these and their husbands or boyfriends enjoy the fact that we tax payers support their families so they keep having kids!!

Because medicaid pays for them to have them then they can. Work for 1 month and get $1500.00 on income tax probably has a big factor in that not counting the foodstamps they get my opinion after 2 children medicaid should not pay and u should not receive anymore foodstamps or tax money and the baby factor would drop

You do realize Medicaid is other people's taxes? You aren't taking care of your kids if you are taking other people's money. And expecting your second child when you can't take care of your first one? Completely irresponsible. If you take one penny of government money you have zero room to talk. Our country is 16 Trillion in debt, the day is coming soon when there won't be ANY government assistance, whether that be food stamps, welfare, or Medicaid. We are broke, and borrowing more Chinese money every day to pay for social programs. Both parties are responsible, we need a good 3rd political party that will quit all reckless spending. Everything must be cut, education, military, social security, and welfare. It will hurt but make us stronger.

woah u just stop for one minute. Just because we are the younger generation doesn't mean shit. U need to shut ur mouth. Cause I'm 21 and I have a child who cares. At least my daughter is in a healthy home. Maybe u should walk in my shoes I have made a big change in my life once my daughter was here I moved three states away and I have a job and my child is doing good maybe u r just mad cause u can have anymore children why don't everyone just get over yourselves
Cause the only people u are hurting is ur selves no on likes an person if that person just sits there and talks crap about people all day. Damn grow up. U all act childish on here being the older generation. Just cause we Don't follow y'all doesn't mean anything maybe we want to be better parents than u almost ever was leaving ur kid with some stranger u don't know so that u can go out nd have a beer GROW UP. And as for the benifits it just helps having them when u don't have enough money to get food for themselves. Back off of teen mothers bitch.

If you can't provide for your kids then you don't need to have them. It is not fair to us when we are taking care of our families plus yours. I can understand if you are working and your job doesn't carry insurance if you are under paid. But if you are making enough money then you can pay for your own insurance. But these people that are lazy and just don't want to work they kill me. It's not right we bust our asses every day for our families and they go do whatever the heck they want to do. At least I can say that everything I got I worked for and paid for my self. No help from knowone! Over half of the people can't say that because they have had help from someone. I do pray that they will start drug testing all these folks that is on welfare because over half are on drugs. I'm very happy to say that I don't have to depend on other people for money!

Why does everyone judge a book by its covers. Its not the teens fault look at ourselves talking down on them and have u tried to be the younger generation with the economy with the way it is now hell. Most people do it cause they don't have jobs I bet u all have food stamps and just talk trash to make ur selves feel better u don't thinkbefore u speak so shut the hell up for real. There are a lot of people out there who don't have either and u all don't talk smack about them hmmmmmmm I wonder why cause u look down on the people who are trying than the ones who are not I bet u have a family member that has benefits as well don't see u talking about them

[quote]If you take one penny of government money you have zero room to talk.[/quote]

Wonder if you include everyone who got a college degree with a Pell Grant?

Anyone who drew unemployment ever?(yes it's funded by payments from your employer but it costs more than those payments cover)

Medicare?(costs way more if you use it much than your contributions over the years can support)

Frankly, the debt we have is something EVERYONE has benefited from whether you take a direct payment from the government or not. That fancy new 4 lane highway that you will be driving on? don't think that sucker wasn't paid for with borrowed money.

And no matter what people say on the street, the vast majority go in the booth and vote for the guy who promises them the most stuff.

Maybe if we all stop thinking and talking about other people and their lives we could focus on bettering our own. Sitting around bitching about how you dont like what this generations doing aint gonna change nothing! I mean everyones gonna have sex eventually right? maybe if wed stop telling them NOT to and tell why wed like them not to and what would happen if they got pregneat or got someone pregneat it would help. instead of telling them not to!!

Drugs. The drugs today aren't what were back in the day. They get high/drunk...and most parents of these teens are just as strung out as the kids are. Period.

I can assure you that I do not do drugs and neither do my parents! My first child wasnt planned but I stepped up and took my responsibility and supported and raised my child and still do. However, my current pregnancy was planned and I can promise you that neither one had anything to do with drugs! I love both of kids, they are a blessing and I wouldnt trade either one for anything in the world!
