This is the case of children pregnancy. Several factors should be taken into account, including a loss of traditional values, child prostitution, corruption in all levels, including the core of society, the family. A lack of hope for a better future, general misery and the search for quick, instant pleasure and gratification perhaps has affected our children even. Its not strange to see a child breathing into a plastic bag full of glue and just the other day I saw a kid, perhaps 8 years old, as old as my son, searching through a trash bag close to where I live. It’s a common enough scene unfortunately, but what surprised me was that the kid found a spray of some sort and quickly placed his mouth on it and started breathing in the spray. Then he passed it over to a child even younger, maybe six, who did the same thing. Sad times.
The political stances doesn’t help things one bit. Drugs are slowly being legalized and politicians wink an eye in approval when asked their stance on drugs. Perhaps the most ironic “progress” was made with the more explicit sex and reproductive education at an alarming early age, and “Citizen Formation” which drills sexual and communist social concepts into the minds of children to young to understand. These two have been included by the left wing government after 2002.
This is of course done for the well being of the children, so they are both informed and tolerant citizens in the future. Doesn’t seem to be working very well though: The amount of pregnancies among girls younger than 13 years has tripled since 2001.
Very convenient for these socialist authoritarians, to have such “well informed” mothers and huge masses of poor. Hey, they can be grandmas by the time they are 26! Go social and reproductive education, its clearly getting the results they want!
The Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Hector Aguer, referred to the mandatory “Citizen Formation” assignment (2 hours per week) as “neoMarxist brainwashing of the Argentine youth”. But he’s probably one of those evil Catholics, right?
Take care folks.
