Time on their hands

This school year, there were 90 pregnant girls in Frayser High School, Memphis, Tennessee.  That is absolutely tragic!!  These kids need to be involved in other extra-curricular activities.  The township should be responsible since, clearly, there isn’t much of an age difference between the parents and the students either and so the parents are in no way competent to take responsible decisions.  Also, these  student mothers and infants are very likely to become a burden on the State. The township could also consider all-girls public schools?  How is it that a deeply religious South fails in teaching its communities the importance of marriage as a condition to parenthood? Churches have to wake up to this issue as well.

More on this from Sylvia Gayle, on Saturday, January 15, 2011:

This is absolutely ridiculous. Don’t they have a sex education program that makes them take care of an egg or doll? Where are these teenagers parents? I do not intend to offend anyone’s morals, but I also blame the extreme religious values of the South. There are some cases that abortions should be allowed. Up North we don’t have these problems, maybe one pregnancy every 500 students. These children need to be educated, by both their parents and their school system, as well as their church.
