Teen Pregnancy Video
I finally had a chance to sit down and scan through some old Betamax videotapes that have been collecting. Lots of them had movies and TV shows on them, but I came across a couple that were projects of some high school students.
In the 1980s and 1990s, teen pregnancy was a HUGE issue. Both of the high schools I went to had built in day cares, and one even offered "child care" as a genuine credit. Hell, I was tempted to take the class just to hang out with the girls who were taking it! Anyway, I don't hear much about teen pregnancy these days. Today's fad is high school violence.
This is a play about two girls who get knocked up by the same guy. It was very obviously recorded in the 1980s. It's worth watching the whole 35+ minutes of it just because of the atrocious acting and story.
