Seems to be a good program. But it would be better to prevent teenagers of having babies and devote their 'efforts' to get an education. What kind of future awaits for these children?

if this is a volunteer mentoring group, why do they need grant money?
i think it is admirable that these ladies are helping these girls, but why do they expect to be paid for it? especially with taxpayers dollars.

Who said they expected to be paid for it? Maybe they need the money for a facility to hold their meetings in, informational pamphlets, utilities and cupcakes.

They should shove some money into teaching these kids to keep there legs shut until there old enough to take care of there own responsibilities. For every one of these children raising children, there are about 10 more whose parents end up raising those illegitimate children.

How about these "seasoned" moms use thier time more wisely by speaking to these girls before they get knocked up by the unemployed bum still living in his parents basement. That might do the world a favor. Also, take them to the doctor to get the old tubes tied.

Maybe they could use the money for depo-provera and the like.

I agree, but maybe that can be another program to be started. It should be a beginning and an ending. I would love to do something like this on both ends...to inform young ladies and men that they should wait, but if they don't there is a program that is willing to assist you after the fact. I just think it would be strategic to have a solution on both ends. It's hard having kids whether married or single, educated or uneducated. We just need to inform our youth more..so you with me on this LST?

Sign me up. I'm all about another taxpayer funded welfare program that coddles people and tells them that their lifestyle decisions will ultimately be subsidized by those who didn't make such choices. Just another example of our long, slow decent into a broken, welfare state.

I 'm with you, Veteran!
Although there are official programs, we need a group of pregnant women or moms warning the teenagers about pregnancy like this group.

Has anyone else ever made a mistake?! Thank God for programs like this. I was a pregnant teen. Now because of getting help when I needed it, I am a working, college graduate. Do not let stereotypes confuse the fact that there is a chance for these girls and their children to succeed. Prevention is great. But for some it's too late. You have to make the best out of a bad situation- can you even imagine how scared these girls are?! Awesome story!

Great comment!!! The same people bashing these girls probably supported Palin for VP!!! Remember, she had a pregnant teen daughter. It is a support group to help people. Many pregnant teens can and do go on to lead very positive lives.

i thought it was a great piece maybe the parents should help THERE own kids keep there legs shut and the reason why this program was started is to help teen moms go through the unexpected because they dont have anyone to go to or talk to about pretection or anything eles they are curious to know and that is what this program is to help them think about what they can do if they decide to go through it again and to give them advice and to teach them what they need to no! you dont no what they have gone through u dont no what they are thinking! maybe this is away of them thinking maybe if i sleep with this guy maybe he will love me because i dont have that from anyone eles u never judge anyone! this program is nonjudgemental! do u like to be judge? i no i dont! think about it

I think that what they fail to tell girls in Sex Ed 101 is that guys will say ANYTHING in order to "get some". What the guys don't say though, is that if girl happens to get knocked up, she's on her own. She'll be sitting home, 9 months along or caring for a crying newborn, while he is out partying with his friends or trying to talk the next girl into giving it up. He'll ignore her, tell people SHE'S a tramp & generally treat her like dirt, etc. etc. No, not all guys, but hey, we're talking about teenage boys here, so let's be realistic.

That's the point: they should be scared BEFORE getting pregnant to prevent being scared when pregnant!

Just an FYI alot of doctors will not tie these girls tubes until they are a certain age and alot of insurance companies wont even pay for it until their a certain ago.
