Do you remember being 17 ? Hormones were raging. Plus not a lot of mature judgment. You said "girls do make mistakes"..... I don't think a girl ever got pregnant unless there was a boy involved so the situation is not gender specific. I agree boys who father a child should be held financially responsible. Hopefully emotionally responsible as well. I think the urge to have sex is strong and always will be. It would be nice if these kids had great morals but they're too young to see the bigger picture. That's why I agree condoms should be available. Not handed out but made available for the kids who think not only about pregnancy but HIV as well. Especially in red states.
