If you are pregnant or a teen parent you don't need any governmental permission to do or not do anything.

If you are sentient adult you need no governmental paternalism to dictate your life.

If you are a free man you need not suck Obama's teat.

Good move but what if pregnancy was the reason to leave school in the first place.. Girls and fathers get their child support check to use for school expenses, who knows, give it a try. No more unwanted babies. Use education to prosper in life.

A decent comment deserves a decent reply:

For those with pride He gives the clutter of dry leaves whistling down a dry hollow."
