Boy, Oh Boy

Another weird birth story. Only this time it's the boy father getting most of the scrutiny. Well, and the parents as well of course.
The parents of a schoolgirl mother allowed her to share a bedroom with the baby's father who was aged just 12, it emerged today.

Chantelle Stedman was 14 when she became pregnant by Alfie Patten, who although now 13 is barely 4ft and looks about eight.

As fresh details emerged this afternoon of the schoolboy who fathered a baby at 13, news of the birth triggered a political debate over 'broken Britain'.

Alfie, who is one of nine children, said: 'I didn't know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good though, and care for it.'

And, of course, the fetus fetishists are on it, because reportedly the kids considered and rejected abortion. Yesterday Michaela Aston, from the anti-abortion Christian charity LIFE, made this statement:
“We commend these teenagers for their courage in bringing their child into the world. At the same time this is symptomatic of the over-sexualisation of our youngsters and shows the policy of value-free sex education just isn’t working."
And then there's the YouTube interview with all the babies. I'd like to say that I'm too mature to look, but I'm not. In case you're not either, here.

I had to look. Speechless.

Sorry to double post but I just took another look at the Sun cover photo and Alfie sure does resemble the Weekly World News famous Bat Boy.

Double post all you want, BY.

Somebody fixed the picture here. Grand merci! (I gotta figure this blogging stuff out. . . )

You gotta laugh at LIFE calling their total naivete "courage". It's easy to be "courageous" when you don't have a bloody clue as to the trouble you're getting into.

a two-fer for the fetishists. They get to laud the arrival of the baby from the babies and then wham! hit everyone for babies having is it? kids responsible to decide to to have the kid, not responsible enough to know anything about sex and the degenerate little slut should have kept her legs together, but since she couldn't, boys and girls should be segregated until such a time as they are introduced on their marriage night? Never mind that safe sex education might have prevented the entire thing.

I need strong drink.

Allô fern hill! Yes, I found the same graphic illustration (cover of Sun tabloid) without the junk on the bottom. So I deleted the old one and pasted in the new one.
