"Much better that they had gone without, gotten pregnant and ruined at least two lives then, huh? I don't get it."


Because they were on birth control, they knew the likelyhood that they would get pregnant was slim -- or to their teenage minds -- impossible. So, if you can't get pregnant, then why say "No"? And they didn't! To me, their parents did not do the responsible thing. Instead of giving them the knowledge and morals that they needed, they avoided the hard talks and instead gave them the birth control and basically saying, "We know you're going to do it, just don't add anymore stress to our life." Well, now-a-days that can be the most deadly thing to do to your child. You may avoid pregnancy 98% of the time, but what about AIDS and other STD's?

Have those talks with your daughters AND YOUR SONS! Don't turn your back and avoid it. No, it doesn't always work, as a previous poster said (for them it did for two out of three), well birth control doesn't come with a 100% guarantee either.
