Buck A Day Keeps The Baby Away

Program Pays Girls $1 Per Day To Not Get Pregnant

"GREENSBORO -- A buck-a-day -- that's the incentive being offered to young girls to keep them from getting pregnant.
The group College-Bound Sisters was founded at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro by Hazel Brown, a maternity nurse who thought too many teens were having babies.
Brown said she hopes the program, which pays $1 each day to 12-to-18-year-old girls, will keep them from getting pregnant. In addition to remaining pregnancy-free, the girls must also attend weekly meetings.
The program is funded by a four-year grant from the state.
"Our three goals are that they avoid pregnancy, graduate from high school and enroll in college," Brown said.
Under the program, $7 is deposited into an interest-bearing college fund that the girls can collect once they graduate high school."

And the difference between this and prostitution is? Not much.
Both are predicated on female sexuality being bought.

Like $1 is really going to stop a kid who wants to have sex. Dumb.

It's like an allowance from the 1960s.
