16 And Pregnant and Other Similar Shows Effective

Theres a new study out there showing that the show "16 and Pregnant" which depicts the lives of teen mothers is actually pretty effective at preventing teen pregnancy. I know this has been a big debate since the show came on as to wether is glorifies and glamorizes teen pregnancy. I've seen the show and never felt like it glamorized teen pregnancy. Many of these girls have tough lives as teen mothers. I know that if I were 16 watching it, it would deter me.
