I wrote a post a while ago about 90 Teens Pregnant at one Tennessee high school (click HERE if you missed it), so the imagery of a group of knocked up teens, while shocking, isn’t THAT surprising.
“Amber Cole” was just the beginning! This should be a warning shot that if we don’t take the wheel and steer our teens in another direction… THIS is what will be the norm.
