Unwed Mother, Teen Pregnancy Exploitation Poster

Having been born in the 80's, it's hard for me to remember a time in which having children out of wedlock was scandalous. In the 50's, though, it was a big deal, especially given the fact that the waiting til marriage farce was still being upheld in the mainstream culture. This particular representation is very over-the-top and hard to imagine from a modern perspective. Obviously, few are shocked by this anymore. So, enjoy this supremely campy take on teen pregnancy and think wistfully back to a time when it was seriously frowned upon. And PLEASE educate your daughters and sons about birth control!
