Great episode, Too bad Americans think this topic is so taboo

Author: smallrage1 from Canada

Sorry but I just have to comment on this episode and on the trivia that stated Many WB Affiliates opted not to air this episode, due to the subject matter of teenage pregnancy and abortion combined.

First of all I am appalled at why WB Affiliates wouldn't show this very important topic because how the topic is so still so taboo in the USA. Especially as a fact Each year, almost 750,000 women aged 15-19 become pregnant. Overall, 75 pregnancies occur every year per 1,000 women aged 15-19; this rate has declined 36% since its peak in 1990. This study doesn't include the women 18 and higher who have unwanted pregnancies, how many women go through to term with pregnancies only to abandon their child or worse abuse or murder them.

So instead of this being a taboo episode this episode should of been used as an educational tool to all who have unprotected sex. So to the people of the US it's time to get your head out of the sand and educate yourself because this is happening now in your own backyard or neighborhood. Maybe if more of these episode were allowed to be shown the rate of pregnancies would decline, that would be less of a stress on social welfare also because the majority of these unwanted pregnancies seek welfare for help as there family abandons them completely.

So bravo to which ever network who had the guts and moral obligation to show this episode, so I vote a 10 just for having the guts for educating Americans. If if the Pope and Religious fanatics like Jerry Falwell didn't want it aired then its a poor reason for it being a taboo topic
