What, if anything, is being done to PREVENT the occurrence of teen pregnancies among teen girls in Lincoln County?

If the parents and the schools can't seem to provide anything other than the failed abstinence-ONLY approach to sex education, it's not too surprising that the teen pregnancy numbers are high.

They're probably more interested in the extra attention they get for having a baby, and the free stuff after that.

Side note: my brother was dating a 29 year old lady and he knew she had a daughter, he was kinda surprised when he found out the little "daughter" wasn't hers, it was her daughters daughter. 29 year old grandma, wtf?

REALLY. What kind of "free stuff" are they allegedly getting, exactly? If all they're getting is a free package of diapers and other little things, that's hardly impressive, as that certainly won't last very long. A baby can use up a package of diapers in a week or two at the most.

I'm still wondering if the teens in Lincoln County are getting anything other than the FAILED and useless abstinence-ONLY approach to sex education. A course in how EXPENSIVE babies are would probably be a lot more effective to help teens, especially the girls, to "just say no."

Encouraging teens who AREN'T pregnant yet or haven't caused a pregnancy to think about all the freedoms they would have to GIVE UP if a pregnancy happened would also be very helpful.

Accidents happen. I got pregnant at 17 and it wasn't for attention or "free stuff", I just finished my first year of college and my bf and I have our own place. & we arent on welfare. And I have my child 24/7 except for when she's in day care for me to go to school or work. Not everyone gets prego for attention it's just one thing that can happen when your having sex. & I chose to take responsibility for my actions instead of running off and having an abortion. Ppl gripe because teens are getting prego but then they gripe cause they have an abortion someone will always b!tch about something and judge ppl. Instead of juding someone how about telling them how awesome of a mother they are and what a great job they are doing.

There no "accidents" if you refuse to use birthcontrol and condoms.

THAT claim is idiotic, especially considering that it is largely the religious conservatives who push for the FAILED abstinence-ONLY sex education programs. They fail to give teens ALL the facts about sex and how unwanted pregnancies happen, then they stupidly wonder why so many teen girls in their states are getting pregnant.

Conservative religious republicans continually prove that President Obama is a LOT smarter than they are.

True. Unfortunately, anti-choice republicans would prefer everyone to remain ignorant of this fact.

Agree. Also prengcy is alot more dangerus then abortions, more kids are abuse and murder by their OWN MOTHERS because they were force/pressure to not get an abortion or adoption when they want to in the first place and/or mental and emontionlay ill.
