Teen Mom Is Supposed To Be a Cautionary Tale- Is It Glamorizing Teen Pregnancy?

You’ve no doubt seen the video of “Teen Mom 2″ star Jenelle Evans and one of her former friends get into a fightfight, or at least heard about the drama.

Here’s the problem: Jenelle and the other teen moms on MTV’s show are considered to be stars.  And now three of Evans’ teen friends are pregnant, too.

MTV says,  “MTV does not solicit and would never knowingly cast anyone who chose to get pregnant on purpose that is the exact opposite of the intent of our show. Both ’16 and Pregnant’ and ‘Teen Mom’ are intended as cautionary tales and meant to cast a light on the harsh realities teens face when raising children at too young an age.”

But, to teenage girls, the thought of the money and attention they would get if they could get on one of these MTV shows could be a powerful draw.

What do you think of Teen Mom?
