Teen pregnancy "shaming" campaign slammed by young parents - Your Community
Do you feel the ad campaign could be an effective one in the prevention of teen unwanted pregnancy or do you feel it is unfair to specifically target teens?
I think they re aiming it at the wrong population....kind of late to shame teen parents when they have the baby already.
So teen parent includes 20, 21, and 22 year olds?
First we teach people that children don't matter, that they can have sex whenever they want, just abort it.. it is no big deal.. Then we wonder why we have so much teen pregnancy.. ROFL

My goodness! Is this a common way your friends raise their kids? No one in my circle of their friends or in my parents circle/my childhood friends was/is raised this way. Heck, 100% of my graduating class went to college, no one was off having babies and stuff.
You seem obsessed with abortion. Did you ever have one?
I don't know how I feel about the campaign. I expected it to show the teen itself, not the child. I was relieved to see that it didn't show the teen, as I was worried that it would show overweight teens Kidding!!!

Back to the OP - I don't think I like the ad campaign. I get what they are trying to do, but...it rubs me the wrong way. I guess I'm not a huge fan of "shaming" in general.
