The Sun-Times printed my letter here on why Dick Devine should be prosecuting men who impregnate girls. Maybe that will make some of these men think twice before they do so. And although it is possible for a girl to have a loving, consensual relationship with a man (a concession I'm making to one of the 23 posters below), it is very unlikely. Most men have far more power than most girls. We should enforce the statutory rape laws. Men can find women to sleep with. They don't need to sleep with girls.
(On a related note, has anyone else noticed the Tribune prints a ton of really dumb letters? As in: "I came to Chicago for a vacation. And boy, were the people nice! What a great town this is! Thanks, Chicago! Me and my wife will be back." I have much better luck with the Sun-Times printing my letters than the Trib, so you know that's why I'm paying attention to every dumb letter that fills up the Trib's page)
UPDATE: Thanks to Phocion, blog-master for the DraftVallas blog, for pointing out that Sunday's Sun-Times has an editorial on the topic. In the editorial here is news that the boyfriend was indeed charged with criminal sexual abuse and battery. Here's one challenge to conservatives: how can you justify opposing sexual education that teaches 15 year olds like this girl/mother about condoms and ways to have sex (like oral sex) that won't end up in pregnancy. I'm so frustrated by this picture and the tens of thousand of girl/mothers like this that I can understand why Clinton's first Surgeon General (what was her name? Jocelyn Elders or something?) would talk about masturbation and call herself the condom queen if it would help one of these girls avoid getting pregnant.
