Not that they think it's cool, but the stigma is gone. I'm quite sure there's a number of those kids that think 'well if suzy cheerleader seems happy with a kid then maybe it's not so bad, so who needs a condom, sex feels better without it anyway'!

All in the name of rationalizing their desire to have unprotected sex.

Ultimately we'll never know because we can't get inside their heads, but that's my take. If other kids thought it was slutty to get preggers in high school, and they derided the pregnant teens for it, more of them would reconsider that condom decision.

That's a good point.

Like all causes, I am sure it is a combination of all factors. Lack of stigma, foresight and education.

How come the left says thats kids need to make up their own minds, they can do this and that on their own but when they FU they blame it on the kids not being old enough to understand their actions? Can't have it both ways. You really think these kids cannot look around at school and see all the other girls pregnant and not put the two together?

Re: Memphis High School Dealing with Pregnancy Boom

How can you blindly call me the left, when you have no idea what my political position really is? I lean to the right on several issues and I don't vote tickets.

I have mentioned this before, but thing aren't just black and white; left and right. The sooner you realize that the better off you will be. Otherwise you are no better than any of the polarizing nutjobs in the media.

Ok, your an independent, a free thinker but your post always have a left leaning view.

I have never discussed genetic research, corporate gains taxes, local politics(county and lower), etc. with you. I lean pretty far right on all those areas.

Well at least in Memphis they're making babies instead of killing themselves and each other

Police: Teen died at MMU of self-inflicted gunshot wound - WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-

Police: At least 3 shot at California high school – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs
