Cost effective campaigns

Posted by Prymface on Monday, May 24, 2010,

May 5th was National Teenage Pregnancy Prevention day, or was it a whole month? The UK seem to have ignored it anyway. Maybe that's a good thing, I'm not sure how much difference it makes.

Posted by prymface on Saturday, May 8, 2010,
I know it's all been said before here and here and I've blogged about it recently but it seems some people still believe that in order to prevent pregnancies they need to reinforce the message that all teenage pregnancies are 'bad' and 'shameful' and will basically ruin your life, rather than allow young people to talk about why they may want a baby, or why they feel like they don't have the same choices as other girls, or why they don't care enough about themselves to think about the next da...
