  • Oh all of them I am sure. No doubt that is what is going through there mind when they choose to have unprotected sex. Hmmm... I wonder if I can get paid if I get knocked up?

  • LOL thats funny. What about before there was a TV show?

  • I think this is so ridiculous! Not your post but the thoughts that this show would "cause" teenage pregnancy in general! They do not show life being easy, they show that most of the men don't stick around, and that your partying and childhood are basically gone! I don't believe this show "glamorizes" teenage pregnancy.

  • Actually teen pregnancies were much more common in the 70's and 80's when it was easy to just go get welfare and sit around. Now the rules are tougher and the kids are more educated. I was a teen parent because nobody told me that I COULD get pregnant from the pull out method

  • I am 18 and I am 28 weeks pregnant. I am not on TV for it nor am I getting paid for being pregnant. So for people to think that teenagers get pregnant for money are tv is just stupid.

  • I'm not going to win any friends with this: but this is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.  I'm sure that there are a few less-than-brilliant people out there whom are foolish enough to try it.  But you'll be hard pressed to convince me that there's any sort of trend forming around it.
