It would be nice if the amount of pregnancy clinics could increase throughout the nation. I would like to see these clinics funded by voluntary private donations without any assistance from the government because the taxpayers should not be responsible for a pregnancy they had no part of.
There is a need for centers/clinics that could provide prenatal vitamins, ultrasound, etc., but again, this service should be done through charity rather than the governments allocation of funding. The government and insurance companies are so powerful, resulting in the honest, responsible individuals losing their rights.
I came across this site while researching charitable organizations where my daughter might find a low or no-cost ultrasound being she has found herself unexpectedly pregnant even though she used precautions and protection.
Once again, it appears abstinence is the only 100 percent method of preventing pregnancy in teens. She (and hopefully the father of the child) will be taking full financial responsibility as they should, rather than expecting taxpayers to bail them out. I hope others in her situation are able to look towards family and/or friends to help with childcare so that when someone finds themselves in a similar situation, they can still work on graduating high school and furthering their education.
Though paying for medical expenses makes things tougher, assuming self-responsibility does wonders for building character.
