So, tonight I had to make a trip to Walmart to get Orajel. This medicine is right by the condom section. I was so embarrassed to walk close to that section because it was so late at night.
Then I got to thinking… wow. I’m 18 years old and embarrassed to walk by condoms because people think I might be buying them? So this is why teen pregnancy rate is so high. Personally, I want my children (if I have them) to be comfortable with the idea of protection. People have sex, it’s a fact of life. Let’s just keep it safe at least.
We need to embrace the idea of protection. Being a mother when you aren’t ready is hard, so let’s try to take steps to prevent it.
*Note: protection = less chance of unwanted pregnancy = less abortions
