I don't understand some teenage girls. The instant they start their periods, they're all off getting pregnant. The area in which my old high school is in is legally able to give out condoms and emergency contraception now, for the simple reason that they need to do it or every single girl in the area is going to get pregnant.
I swear, half of them probably don't know where the kids are coming from. You'd think they'd spot a correlation between sex and small person popping out, but no, they don't.
They must think it's cool or something - cool to be wandering around town with a pram, cigarette hanging out of your mouth, skimpy vest top and tight jeans on that most teenagers could look good in, but you don't because you've got a shitload of stretch marks and still haven't lost weight since giving birth to little Bratly. (Yes, I do see that all the time, no, I am not making this stuff up)
OK, sarcastic bitching aside - why?
They have little to no education. Now that they've had their child, they're not going to be able to get an education. In fact, they're not going to be able to get anything! They're still children themselves! They may say 'But I'll have the rest of my life to get an education and go out and have fun.' but no, kids, you won't.
When your bastard child reaches 18 and fucks off into the world, where are you going to be? You're going to be in your late thirties to early forties, probably with more children to look after - you may be married. You're not going to be able to be bothered to go get qualifications, get out and party, whatever! You've had your teenage years, the years where you could be bothered; you scuppered them giving birth, remember?
But hey - you know the worst thing?
They don't have to do anything - they'll get an apartment given to them on a silver platter, they'll get benefits, they'll get grants, they'll get their entire lives paid for by the taxpayer*.
And if you go off to get an education at university, you're going to spend the rest of your life in debt because the government is spending all their money on the shitbags above. And on top of that, you're stuck giving your own money to leeches in the form of tax.
And the government are having the brass neck to complain about the lack of teenagers going on to higher education. I ask you...
