My wife started her nursing career in Labor and Delivery. There would be girls as young as 10 years old coming in to deliver babies. Had trouble figuring out how a 10 year old girl could get pregnant, not the mechanical aspect but the physiological aspect. I was told that the growth hormones used to get cattle ready for market were having a similar effect on humans, they sorta grow up faster and this is a result.
The most disconcerting delivery I learned about was a 20 something girl who, after the birth, asked the nurses "where did that come from"?
I used to work with a young lady that was pretty heavy and she claimed that she didn't know she was pregnant until her water broke. I found that pretty hard to believe but then I've never had a 9 pound youngster in me.
Nemo me impune lacessit.
How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?
Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.
Why not have kids at 12, start getting the government checks early. If she can pop out a few more by the time she's 18, just think how big of checks she'll be getting. After all, wouldn't want the girl to use something as evil as birth control.
Best birth control for under aged unwed couples is abstinence. Don't have to worry about pregnancy or nasty little diseases.
But, 12 year olds should not be worrying about such things anyway!
yeah...that works - in fantasy land.
but, in the real world of single-parent homes, filled with American Idol on the TV that is never turned off, watched by your no child left behind ...bad stuff starts to happen when they become teenagers.
I've seen too many little girls dressed like prosti-tots. Too many parents think dressing like that is cute but they are just sexualizing their daughter. Try teaching them a bit of modesty instead. I think modesty is a good foundation for abstinence. I was thrilled when my 16yr old just went to her first formal, and was concerned about her dress opening too much at the top.
Never knock on Death's door. Ring the bell and run, he hates that.
