Equal treatment

I want to see if the authorities as upset over these underage pregnant girls as they were about the girls from the FLDS compound. Or how about the thousands of them all over the country?

(By the way, if you're interested in what has been going on, now that that story has all but disappeared from the news, and some of the stories behind the story, the Deputy Headmistress has been staying on top of the story at The Common Room.)

I agree there should be equal outrage over this. I feel sorry for these girls who have made such a foolish decision at such a young age. I feel sorry for the people who think that somehow "better" sex education will solve problems like this one. I feel sorry for the children who will be born into this situation. I feel bad for the parents of these girls.

The one thing that makes me happy is reading that even though some of these pregnancies were unplanned, the girls have chosen to have the babies. That always makes my heart sing!
