"If You Just ‘Get Pregnant,’ You Don’t Face Society’s Judgment"
An indication that something's definitely wrong with society.
“There’s a sense that it’s not cool to get married and have kids right out of college. But if you just ‘get pregnant,’ you don’t face society’s judgment. If anything, it becomes kind of heroic: ‘Wow, what a sacrifice. She made the choice to raise her baby!’”
The quotation above comes from a Glamour Magazine article entitled "Are You Playing Baby Roulette?" The article describes the ambivalence and fatalism with which many young American women approach the subject of having children out of wedlock.
"This laissez-faire attitude about the life-changing act of becoming a mother may seem shocking, but it's far from unusual," Glamour author Michelle Stacey writes. That "laissez-faire attitude" does not bode well for our Republic, friends. Nor do things look so bright for the future of conservatism; a message that depends on the underlying assumption that personal responsibility, fiscal sanity, and the preservation of our social mores and institutions are all well worth pursuing, is a surefire loser with a demographic of Americans who have already willfully traded in personal autonomy for a bowl of beans.
