So, if you haven't been paying attention to society then you may not have noticed the great increase of teen pregnancy happening in America lately. Everyone is being effected by it. 35% of young women who are sexually active become pregnant at least once before they are 20. I personally know SEVERAL young women who I went to middle & high school with who are now mothers. I'm not particularly saying that this is a bad thing because I one of my good friends is now a mom & everyone if fully entitled to make their own decisions, but this topic has become an epidemic. Many of these young women aren't ready to raise a child because their still a child themselves. Babies raising babies just lead to troubled childhoods. There are exceptions of course, but I'm just saying in general. One example that has opened my eyes & made me smh is this new movie on LifeTime called The Pregnancy Pact.
For all of you who have watched Lifetime should not be surprised by this, since all this network does is makes movies about teen pregnancy, runaways, STD's, ect. I feel like their objective is to make American mothers paranoid! Anyway, I've been seeing advertisements for this shit everywhere & it really makes me sad. These little bitches in Gloucester, Mass., none older than 16, all had a pact to become pregnant at the same time so they could raise their children together. Mind you they do this without consent of their boyfriends. This story is actually based on a real case which happened back in 2008. It airs January 23rd, so watch is you want to be amused/annoyed.
This following statement was released by Wyclef Jean, who is the head of the Yele organization. He has been working for years to raise awareness about the devastating conditions in Haiti. Do your part to help! Nearly 500,000 may be already dead. Every cent counts.
Haiti faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince. I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now.
President Obama has already said that the U.S. stands ‘ready to assi
st’ the Haitian people. The U.S. Military is the only group trained and prepared to offer that assistance immediately. They must do so as soon as possible. The international community must also rise to the occasion and help the Haitian people in every way possible.”
Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit www.Yele.org and click on DONATE.
The first two are before & after pictures of the presidential palace. Devastating.
