I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
Look instead, if you were going to be honest, not that we expect that much, to the 1950's in America, where girls said "no". Gee, teen pregnancy wasn't such a huge problem then, why is it now? Are today's girls more stupid?
Oh, that's right. In the fifties, the children grew up in a culture where being sluttish wan't just a fashion statement, it wasn't accepted at all by their parents.
I would say that today's parents are too damn lazy, too damn self-centered, and they've created spoiled little monsters who are even worse than they are.
The parents have to actually spend time with their children, and (gasp!) talk to them, and by that I mean in spurts somewhat longer than the commercial breaks on American Idol. Not only that...the parents have to set an example of how to live.......oh, crap, that can't work, can't expect the parents to go out of their way or anything, hell, let's have total strangers be robbed of their hard earned money so parents too damn lazy to do the right thing by their own children don't have to be bothered with their unwanted grandchildren, right? Isn't this what the socially negligent gimmenow liberal masters of America want? Don't they always say "don't worry, your government nanny will fix things, just hand over your money"? Hmmmm....
What's the consequence of the government once again refusing to do what the Constitution doesn't allow it to do?
Well, well, knocked up females don't get "their" check. More importantly, females not yet knocked up would no longer have that check to count on. Don't say it wouldn't have an effect, there's a world of difference between "not much money", and no damn money at all. Knees would be slamming shut all over America if the free knocked up money was turned off. Hopefully the guys will get out of the way in time, because Extenz won't help their situation.
What else would happen if the government said, "yo! Parents of young sluts! it's your grandkid, we're either going to be hitting you with full child support bills or not helping you at all"? Well, there'd be some serious talks about "get on the damn pill, bitch", between momma and the young slut. And since the paternal grandparents would be sharing that bill, fathers would be telling their teen boys stories about the glory of past presidents, or, as some would say, What's a Lewinsky. That, and "tie a knot in it, kid".
Remember, with DNA, paternity isn't a question of "if" anymore.
Yeah, there's no real need to teach abstinence. Simply start restoring a sense of personal responsibility to the American cultural, by making the persons responsible for creating a baby to be responsible for that child.
I fail to see how the elitists expect to have a country left to rule and rape if they succeed in their goal of creating a country comprised of nothing but overgrown children.

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Oh, and gee...look....of the 90 teens that in the fifties that were pregnant, only ...ummm....14% were unmarried...that means...13 girls were unwed and knocked up....let's see..
,,,,in 2000, there were 49 teens pregnant, and 80% of those were unmarried, meaning 39, or ...let's see..
39/13 = 3 Wow. Today's policies led to a 300% increase in unwed teen pregnancies.
Let me guess, you found two pretty pictures, didn't understand the funky ones with the lines, but were impressed with the fat guys, so you posted them both, not realizing that for some of us, not you, numbers aren't strangers.
You're happy over a 300% increase in unwed pregnancies. Great.
Oh. And the curve represents "birthrate", so the number of unwanted pregnancies is vastly greater when one considers that in the 1950's people couldn't rush out and murder their little problems before they were born. How many teen abortions were performed in 2000, do you think? The figure overall for annual abortions is near a million, right? How does that break down to teens/1000?

Of course, this is to say nothing of rising abortion rates, which by nature lower birth rates.
