Hindsight is a great thing, isn’t it? Nobody knows that better than the cast of “Teen Mom.” So the original cast members got together to make a public service announcement warning other girls about unprotected sex and teenage pregnancy.
Their experience of getting pregnant in high school makes the young women perfectly placed to talk to our high schoolers about using contraceptives and preventing teen pregnancy. And they have stepped up to give other teens the benefit of their experience with unwanted and unexpected pregnancy and the aftermath of raising the baby.
The stars of the original season of the hit TV show (Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout) have worked together on a public service announcement and here we bring you the video.
“The night that I got pregnant, I wish that me and my boyfriend were cuddling and watching a movie,” Catelynn said.
“Cuddling is better than going all the way,” Farrah also agreed in the PSA.
The public service announcement, which carries the consistent message that cuddling is better than going all the way, has just started running nationally. In it, the girls talk about what they would have done in their senior year of high school if they had not gotten pregnant and, basically, why you should stay protected and not get pregnant as a teen.
The new season of “Teen Mom” premieres on July 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. And we already know that a fourth season has got a green light. It seems someone thinks that the teen moms, especially with these PSAs, fulfil a bigger purpose than gratuitous entertainment.
