If they didn't want the kid they should have kept their damn legs closed in the first place IMO.

You have it all wrong.
If a young girl gets KNOCKED-UP... over a senceless TWO NIGHT STAND... and does not have money to by milk and pampers... because she was fanasizing about... "What Paris Hilton felt like the night of her sex tape?"... then.. is stupid enough to think she can play... play house, with her own living Barbie doll... then, demands or expects the grandparent.., 9 out of 10 times the State or (her dumbfounded mother) to raise, feed, house and teach her and the fatherless addition to the home... common sence... while the clueless teenaged girl figures out... after the fact.... how hard it will be to maintain... the "daddies lil' princess status" she once had... because the original sperm doner & her (VV) or virginal value... is long gone... and now no decent single young man... or future husband... in his right freaking mind... really want's to fund... or look into the crying-slobering-face... of a ready made family... comprised of another mans DNA... unless the teenaged girl... grows up... to look like Pamela Anderson, Heidi Klum, or any other stunning bombshell... to make the punishment worthwhile

i think forcing someone to have a kid when they dont want to is punishing them.
What species are you?
^Its a bunch of cells, not a baby yet.
It isnt aware.
Like many Americans he (Obama) views having a child as a "hold back" for women.
I work on the internet, from home... On computer all the time , if I feel like slacking I can just sit here all day if I choose.
it's Feminism that was hijacked away from actual women, by men, lesbians, the media, the UN, and Big Govt.
Is that so? You KNOW most women? Out in the boonies there, shut up in your house? Huh.
it is NOT a satisfying life for most women to remain barren.
Wow! How do you KNOW this? Do you mingle with these people? I suspect you do not because Hillary only has ONE child, Chelsea, not plural "KIDS". Whoops.
Obama was never involved in his kids lives. Hillary was never involved in her kids lives. Palin is the only one...we have ever gotten who actually is a FAMILY oriented leader...
Is that so, Professor? And you know this from - what? ONE anecdotal example. Sorry. Try again. Millions of women for millenia have had children when older - and holy crap! Most of their lineage is still around! If it were the gloom and doom you think - we'd be up to necks in handicapped people.
To say that women shouldn't have children young (the same crowd that worries about their health) is dooming them to complications, troubled offspring from a life of accumulated toxins.
And...if you had kids you would find that the maturity comes hard and fast.
Being a parent is not the chore social scientists make it out to be.
if I feel like slacking I can just sit here all day if I choose.
Its a social judgement is the real issue. Should I support teaching classes that continues to place social pressure on women to not have kids when every single thing indicates that is NOT where happiness lies.....
School is by and large a party time
Uh - did it ever occur to you that these girls were doing this as a result of all the REPUBLICAN PROPAGANDA that's currently floated to BREED BREED BREED? And most of the Baby Boomers who are the parents of todays young kids DID quit their jobs and stayed home with the kids. You *believe* its lack of attention from *your perception* - do you know all these people? And their motives? There certainly COULD BE another reason for teenage pregnancy besides YOUR reasons. Ever run your eyes over magazine covers at the supermarket? Its all Celebrity Breeding. Maybe THIS is where these kids are getting the idea. You are making assumptions based on YOUR ideas. Which is fine for you - but please do not PREACH to people.
What I am seeing is alot of young girls getting pregnant on purpose in a reaction. and I think that reaction is to seeing how unfulfilled their career moms lifes really are and the lack of love and attention that comes from having career parents... so the seek to have love
I can not imagine if I had waited unitil now to have a child and I was 47 instead of 37 when he was young, to NOT be able to run and play and jump quite as easy with him, to not have him grow up with mom while she was still beautiful....
I sucked as a Husband. badly at times too, nothing was perfect, I screwed up and ......Became a man I'm proud of in the process.
Alaska needs men lol, Chicago needs prisons for extra babies...
