So many stereotypes. Oddly, the thing that made me saddest was the hardline Jewish kid. He wants to be a rabbi. Are you surprised? Is anyone not a rabbi where he is growing up? Rather undermines my belief that humans have free will; you don't if you grow up in a place like that.

The girl who's been pregnant three times and is only 14 -- sad in a different way. She's had choices, even if mostly I'm sure they've been between 'bad' or 'worse'. She's lived, at least a bit.

Overall I found this link extremely troubling, and I really wish I hadn't found it at 4 a.m. right before I sleep.
