What I really don’t get is why so many people keep talking bad about Jamie Lynn and how she has “glamorized” teen pregnancy. The way I see it, she doesn’t have the best parents, she is allowed to make decisions that she has no business making, she made a huge mistake which resulted in her daughter, and she’s taking responsibility for it.
I can’t imagine that it’s easy having to quit your show and take all this negative pressure from the media. Honestly, she’s being held up as a poster child for the Gloucester High stuff, when I honestly think she should be given some kudos for not choosing abortion. She’s really lost a lot through making the right decision:
She’s repeatedly held up by the media as the negative image of teen pregnancy.
She’s going through motherhood at a very young age.
She lost her job.
She’s had a lot of negative publicity.
She moved back home and hasn’t appeared publicly through her pregnancy.
I mean, give her a break. It would have been so much easier for her to have gotten an abortion and get out of all that…but she didn’t. She made the mature decision to deal with everything from her mistakes and I respect her for that. I think she should get at least some support for that.
Sure, other girls have made the right decision too. But they also haven’t had their situation analyzed by every media outlet throughout their entire pregnancy…or had paparazzi to deal with when trying to leave the hospital. It’s not good attention that she’s had to deal with and I think she deserves some sympathy for that.
