Illegitimacy -- Not Teen Pregnancy -- Is the Story

Well Libby, they aren't "fathers", they are "sires". The "mother" left behind has an option that is frowned upon these days. ADOPTION! To answer your question as to why it is the "mother" who sticks around, it is because she (once again) CHOSE to do so. ADOPTION! Don't cry over spilt milk. Your choice and the sire's choice ended when you danced the horizontal mambo. My former foster daughter is raising her child at 16, he's almost TWO. The sire is a POS who had to be taken to court for child support claiming he wasn't the sire (backed by his welfare mom). If he'd been six months older, I would have filed statutory rape charges against the loser. After his son was born he knocked up his girlfriend (he can't learn), but married her

Adoption? Would you give your child away? Because that wasn't an option for me. I have loved my daughter since the moment that I knew that I was pregnant. And I am certainly not crying over spilled milk. I made the choice to have sex. I made the choice to have my daughter. I made the choice to love her. And I don't regret that. It's the best thing that ever happened to me, the best decision that I ever made. So, your foster daughter has a less than ideal situation. That's not all single mothers. Don't lump us together.

school and get into the local junior college's RN program. Oh yeah, her older sister has now conceived twins, after two miscarriages (she is an adult now and has graduated high school), all with sleeping with d i r t bag drug fools, one of whom is a taxpayer guest at Club Fed in Big Spring, Texas. So why do the women do it? Stupid I'd say, can't learn a lesson.

and the second child is now nine-months and he is divorcing. Yep, just like his sire, he is following in his foot steps (out the door). Now did his girlfriend not think clearly when he knocked up another girl prior to her (they were "engaged") that this POS sire had a serious character flaw which is highly "prized" by libs today (no responsibility).

I'm not defending the male, those who act like this give the real men and fathers an undeserved reputation (guilty by testicles?). However, since the female wished to be male (the goal of Feminazi's) and there will be no distinction... don't come crying to me sister, I won't listen. By the way, we're still trying to be a part of our former foster daughter's life, to help her finish high

The WaPo's Sarah Kliff thinks we are "in the midst of a big public health success story" because teen births and pregnancies are down 42% since 1990.

At the risk of being the skunk at Ms. Kliff's garden party, I would suggest that her optimism is, perhaps, misplaced.  When most people deplore a high teen pregnancy or birth rate, they are not upset about reproducing teens who are happily married -- working, and/or with a spouse that is.

Rather, when one invokes the term "teen pregnancy," the image that springs to mind is of a young, poor, unwed mother whose...
