  • hmm I think it's worth considering - when I was in college I read an article where they were paying drug addicts to be sterilized - it prevents those of us who work and take care of our children from footing the bill to care for chidlren who would end up in foster care or on welfare

  • Maybe we should do something about their parents who can't control their teenagers.

  • How about the parents teaching them some responsiblity instead. Maybe a lesson in morality to go along with it. Keep the pants up and the legs crossed.

  • Why are parents not raising their own kids? Teaching them not to sleep around with people when they reach the age? Since when is it okay to pay for a persons virginity? I really have a hard time understanding the fact that there are parents out there that do not give a rats @ss about where thier kids are and what they are doing. Parents need to raise thier kids right or not have kids at all.

  • Well because it's too much work to be a parent anymore and that's where the problem is. I have friends who have teenagers and those kids run ALL OVER their parents. And the parents are too afraid they might make little Johnny mad. TOUGH SH!T, be a parent.

  • Brilliant, now more girls would have more motivation to sneak behind their parents' backs and get abortions because, god forbid, they might not get that Mustang when they graduate.
