Who knew having a baby could be so lucrative??
The Candie's Foundation, "a non-profit organization that works to shape the way youth in America think about teen pregnancy and parenthood," announced recently that its campaign to lower teen pregnancy rates is a smashing success. On its website the foundation said:
Our campaigns are making a difference. Research has shown that teen girls who have been exposed to the foundation and its messages are more likely to view teen pregnancy and parenthood as stressful and negative, and they are more likely to be skeptical of the media's portrayal of teen pregnancy and parenting. They also think teens should wait longer to have sex than girls who are not aware of the foundation and its messages.
For proof of the foundation's efficacy we need look no further than its spokesperson, unwed teenage mother Bristol Palin, whom it paid $262,000 in 2009, and who has not been knocked up since she received the money. Congratulations to Candie's for a quarter million well-spent! And congratulations to Miss Palin as well, for investing her money wisely on birth control!
