True, Techi, but have you noticed today how pushy the girls are towards boys? They are different today and if you ask a teenage boy, he will most likely admit that they have been "approached" by a girl. Of course the boys need to be held accountable but it is obviously not as noticable as it is for a girl. When she becomes pregnant, everyone knows, but they know, and you wonder if they don't feel guilty about it. It's tough out there for our teens and preteens today, but it is up to the parents to talk with them about it and help them make decisions before they fall into it. It's so different and easy to have sex today. Most kids come home to an empty house and the temptations are there to invite their friends in. And then the schools make it even easier. And then the government makes it easier too. I work at Early Head Start and when one 17-year old student gets pregnant, and tells her friends about how easy it is to get free childcare and get on Title 19, it helps kids to not worry so much about getting pregnant if you want to be active sexually. If you don't want to take the van that goes out once a week to Planned Parenthood for an abortion, then you can go ahead with the pregnancy and get all the help monetarily you may need. Who needs parents anyway! Our government will take care of our young.
