If they are going to do anything they need to get rid of some of the progressive laws regarding girls and pregnancy. When I was a foster parent, I found out, from the kids, that the girls wanted to get pregnant as early as possible because then they would be emancipated and free to do what they wanted instead of what they should do. They could collect welfare, food stamps, and get their own places, but only if they had a kid. This is not right. I think that if a girl gets pregnant before graduating from High School, the child should become a ward of the girls parents (or the boys if he is also too young) and they have the option to raise it, adopt it out, or give it to the state. That is what they do in the UK.
