Because this is exactly what happens when you announce you’ll give money and attention to inbred, uneducated white trash if they can get knocked up, it turns out Jennifer Del Rio, one of the ‘stars’ of MTV‘s 16 and Pregnant physically abused her baby daddy over the weekend, and now it’s been revealed that (gasp) she’s a compulsive liar, and (super gasp) she lied to her boyfriend in order to get pregnant because (mega gasp) she wanted to be on TV. And this is why I’m pro-choice.
Smith filed a request for a restraining order against Jennifer Del Rio this week — stemming from an incident in which she allegedly punched Josh in the face. In the docs, Smith claims his baby mama is a “compulsive liar” who concocted a diabolical scheme to get pregnant — allegedly telling him she was knocked up (even though she wasn’t) so he wouldn’t wear a condom.
Smith explains … “She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when in actually [sic] it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on Sixteen and Pregnant.” SOURCE
So basically, MTV decided to make a show about pregnant teenagers, and now a bunch of idiot girls are ruining their lives with famebabies (NEW TERM) because they have no aspirations beyond “I want people to know I exist”. Super. And yet we nearly closed down the fucking government over Planned Parenthood because 3% of their work goes to providing pregnant teenagers with abortions, despite the fact that the rest of what they do involves educating teenagers on sex and providing contraception, which basically means that 97% of what they do involves preventing unwanted pregnancies and abortions. But of course, no one wants to think about that because “Abortion is a complex issue born of a woefully inadequate sexual education system, poverty and gender double standards that should be debated solely amongst women” doesn’t sound as catchy as “BABY KILLER! BABY KILLER! BABY KILLER!” This is literally so stupid, my head actually hurts from trying to make sense of this.
