Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn Spears announced her pregnancy this week and many people are aghast -as they should be. It’s bad news. However, one thing I haven’t heard from anyone is the good news that she’s actually going to have the baby.
How many 16 year old girls who are starring in a hit show on Nickelodeon would risk their careers by having the baby when they could secretly run off to an abortion clinic and “take care” of the problem? I fear that most would not make the same decision as Jamie Lynn Spears.
Look, I’m not nominating Jamie Lynn for sainthood but she should be the subject of our prayers, not our derision. And we should appreciate that after many many bad decisions, this sixteen year old girl made a very very good decision.
