Study Finds Giving Young Girls Fake Babies Doesn’t Deter Teen Pregnancy

- By Bossip Staff

Pregnant White Woman
Just last week MotherJones highlighted the findings of a research study in Western Australia debunking the idea that giving high school girls babies would prevent teen pregnancy… “When they compared girls in Australia who participated in the program to girls who did not, eight percent of the girls who carried the doll gave birth at least once while they were still in high school, compared with four percent of girls in the control group who never worked with the doll. Rates of pregnancy overall were higher in girls who used the infant simulator—nine percent had at least one abortion, where the control group’s rate was six percent.” -Becca Andrews, MotherJones.com… One might almost deem it moronic to subscribe to this method of teen sex prevention when toy companies make a substantial profit marketing and selling “babies” to young girls… How can we hand our children babies to take care of, and play mommy with from ages 2-12, then attempt to use that same method as a means of deterrence?

White Lives Matter Declared A Hate Group

Those who have taken up the White Lives Matter aren’t exactly after fair treatment, though—and they have now been deemed a hate group. Reports the New York Times: A white nationalist group called White Lives Matter, which calls itself an opponent of the Black Lives Matter movement, has been declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks extremist groups in the United States. “The White Lives Matter website says their movement is dedicated to the preservation of the white race. That tells you all you need to know,” said Heidi Beirich, the director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala. “They’re against integration, immigration. This is standard white supremacist stuff.”
