Milwaukee teen pregnancies: 71% from statutory rape!

Extreme 'Shock Ads' Disgust Consumers to Make Their Point — and Consumers Are Disgusted

United Way ads showing a little girl's face atop a busty woman's body to fight teen pregnancy and statutory rape created an uproar online that got them yanked before they went to print.


The campaign was launched to battle the worrying 71 percent of teen pregnancies in Milwaukee that arise from statutory rape, according to the nonprofit powerhouse.

Yikes! And are these statutory rapes actually reported? Or is the number an estimate based on polls of PP customers?

See the ads here. (They mix the order of the ads in the slideshow; click through to find them.) Personally, I think they're right on-target.
