Why are we putting a woman on a pedestal who was a mother at 15? What kind of message does that send?

This is a nice human interest story, nothing more. Hopefully, she can be a productive member of society as a whole once she completes her graduate studies..,

What is a psychology degree from Queens College going to do for her? Perhaps the city of Geneva could use another part-time human rights specialist.

A child at.. 15, while tragic in itself, doesn't merit any special interest aside from the fact that this young woman had no idea what life can bring us for being irresponsible. Good luck to her getting a job to support her kids and congratulations to the taxpayers who (hopefully are off the hook)probably paid her kids way through life so far. or...who cares ?
