Almost every single pre-teen synced with Nickelodeon was shocked, not to mention the adults, when they read and heard the news: JAMIE LYNN SPEARS. 16, ACTRESS & AND SOON-TO-BE MOM.

Seeing her older, and much more publicized sister being scrutinized by the media, one would have safely assumed Jamie would have done things a bit smarter, maybe rise above the expectations. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

Nine months later, OK! Magazine ran their best selling issue since 2005, with Jamie Spears right on the cover along with her new born. What does that image really mean, though? In my perspective, the media is simply glorifying teen pregnancy. Granted, it’s not entirely Spears’ fault, but the truth of the matter is she did in fact received a hefty amount for the rights of those pictures. The end result? Teens all over the country, and across the world even, will rush towards that pedestal in which kids (that’s what pre-teens are), have kids. Babies having babies.

Not only are these teenagers cutting short their chances of succeeding, of becoming someone in this life and accomplishing beyond what individuals of past generation could ever hope for, but they are also contributing to a growing problem that affects the whole world.

Mass Population.

We’re already seeing the effects in countries such as China. The issue of forced abortion is a hot potato that nobody wants to hold. Africa is slowly rising to the same dilemma. Mass population is one of the reasons they can’t control malaria. Although, Bill Gates is working on it.

Central American countries such as El Salvador can’t seem to house all of their people, so they let them venture out to other countries. The U.S. too, seems to be slowly showing the symptoms of mass population. Henry Kissinger and other individuals had different ideas to solve the population crisis. Forced abortion. Genocides. Depopulation through food. These are all crimes against humanity. I’m against it. But there is another solution. A smarter solution.

Protection. And if you really want to have a child and help the population crisis? Adoption. Think about it. Adoption.
