YourTurn - 11/17/08

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Heartland Viewer Toni Brown:
"I do not always agree with Mike Smythe but on his (Teen Pregnancy ViewPoint) I agree 100%.  It is the parents' obligation to censor what their children watch on television, not the government."

Jill Johnson from Advance, Missouri:
"Mike Smythe neglected one obviously important point.  If nine girls were pregnant where were the ‘pregnant' fathers in that class?  Why is teen fatherhood not addressed as often as teen motherhood?  If we want to slow down the pregnancy rates among teens, then both sexes must be informed, counseled, and supported both at home and at school!"

Brooke Smith from Bloomfield, Missouri:
"(Regarding Teen Pregnancy) what about the parents?  The first line of defense in teen pregnancy is at home.  Parents need to talk to their children about pregnancy and the effects that it will have on their life and the life of the baby they will be bringing into the world...parents are going to have to start taking responsibility..."

Marc Brockman from Mount Vernon, Illinois:
"I wish I could make $400,000 a year.  It's not fair for (taxpayers) to have to pay for the (large company CEO) bonuses at the end of the year...the rich get richer and the poor get poorer."
