It Takes A Village To Prevent Teen Pregnancy--- Not A Poster Campaign

On behalf of Andrea Rothenberg

For the past 23 years I have been facilitating a comprehensive program for pregnant and parenting teens as well as pregnancy prevention programs for younger teens.  Although I have not “seen” the ads on the trains, I have seen pictures on the internet and am appalled by each of them.  Yes, I agree that using the voices of the children is what is supposed to get the sympathy of others, but I believe it is manipulative and stereotypical.
