    This just baffles me how they could think that this would PREVENT teen pregnancy. All it does is make teens that have already become pregnant or had a child feel like shit. And feeling ashamed and stigmatized doesn’t exactly lead to positive actions, like doing what is best for your child and working hard to make life better for the two of you.

    The ad saying that “chances are he won’t stay with you…” really gets me. Um, I am sure that the pregnant teen found that out way before the baby was even born.

    So well said. Most especially your take away point. I will be sharing this with my birth & parenting community.

    But this ad campaign is targeted at the advance-planned, highly-motivated young women who may _decide_ not to get pregnant because of these messages! ; )

      Really, though, an ounce of practical help is worth a pound of well-meaning concern and society’s disapprobation trying to impress upon the young the error of their ways.

    This is really embarrassing to say and to do..how can someone think of doing all this and makes children feel like doing something they should be ashamed.

    So where are the ads aimed at the teenaged fathers? “Are you ready to be a dad?” Etc. Funny how mom has all the responsibility for the child, when she didn’t get pregnant by herself.
