Letter to the Editor: “Appalled” by pregnancy story

As a former student of CVHS, I am appalled at what I recently read in The Olympian.

I was shocked to see an article glorifying teen pregnancy. I understand that as a journalist, and as an American for that matter, that you have the right to free speech, but I was disgusted to see that you chose to use that right to make teen pregnancy seem “cool.” It’s bad enough that they see this on MTV, but now their peers are glorifying it as well.

I believe that a better way to have used your free speech would have been to educate these young kids about condoms, birth control, and other forms of contraception.

Shame on you for glorifying this!

Maggie Burns, alumnus
