More anti-Catholic nonsense

See if you can spot the logical disconnect here...

Massachusetts High School Facing Pregnancy Boom

It begins with the following:
Officials at Gloucester High School in Gloucester, Mass., are investigating whether half of the teens made a pact to get pregnant during the school year, Time.com reported... "Some girls seemed more upset when they weren't pregnant than when they were," principal Joseph Sullivan told Time.com.

Further down:
The Gloucester baby boom is forcing this city of 30,000 to grapple with the question of providing easier access to birth control, something this largely Catholic enclave is slow to embrace...

SERIOUSLY?? These girls allegedly wanted to get pregnant, and Time magazine thinks the answer is easier access to contraception for minors!!! Someone please explain to me how that makes any sense at all. Seems to me it's just one more ill-considered shot at Catholicism.

Why do the "discussions" of teen pregnancy and the like always involve ways to address the consequences of the action, instead of the action itself? Why can't we teach these young women that their self-worth is about so much more than their sexuality? I'm so tired of everyone assuming kids want to be sexually active.

Seriously Time is just as bad as People magazine when it comes to serious journalism nowadays.

It's a troubling article on so many levels.
