Did I mention that this show precedes The 700 Club?  If you haven’t watched that, go ahead.
You really should so some research on the show before you try and tell the world what it is about. She was conceived during a one-night-stand between her parents in the back of her father's car. Adrian experienced some issues with Mercy while she was in the womb, but was told everything was okay. The series cast includes Shailene Woodley, Ken Baumann, Mark Derwin, India Eisley, Greg Finley, Daren Kagasoff, Megan Park, Francia Raisa with Steve Schirripa and Molly Ringwald.
In the fifth-season opener, Amy (Shailene Woodley) and Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) run off as they contemplate eloping, and George (Mark Derwin) is the only person aware of their secret. When Secret Life came out in 2008, I thought the whole show was developed to prevent teenage pregnancy. There is a Christian girl, who now promises to only have sex with those who promise marriage. It takes a message, makes the characters the most extreme versions of themselves and make the main issues almost laughable, because the worst thing in these kids’ lives seems to be homework.
At first, Adrian considered abortion, but backed out and she and Ben decided to keep their child. Elsewhere, Ben (Ken Baumann) wrestles with guilt concerning a fire; and Adrian (Francia Raisa) prepares for college.


I thought it was funny because it was an American teenager, which makes America look awesome, and also because it was on a family channel owned by Disney. The biggest thing, though, is that every kid there apparently doesn’t know what a condom feels like. If I am completely out of line, let me know, but if you ask me, an 18-year-old girl in this situation might have bigger issues. They follow a show that’s filled with this glorified version of teen pregnancy and premarital sex, with a show against choice and birth control. The next day, Adrian met her doctor at the hospital who told her the baby had passed away in the womb Mercy was delivered stillborn.
The nerdy band guy who was supposed to be a nice guy has married both the show’s protagonist and the previously mentioned “loose girl,” giving him a grand total of two divorces for those keeping score. I taught education and health workshops in inner-city schools with lower pregnancy rates than this fictional school. Let’s follow the most improbable show on TV with a show that would call every character on it heathens. The real issue I have with shows about teen pregnancy is that they are pretty much detrimental to the cause. Any teenager knows that the setup was fake, and therein lies the problem: you make a fake show about a serious issue. The bigger problem is that they make pregnancy almost seem like there are no consequences, because they are all living mostly well.


Of the 45% and higher sexually active students while I was there, only 3% had gotten pregnant.
She works and is a mom, but she can afford to live in a nice apartment, has someone living with her and has been married once and is engaged again. I’m telling you, if you want to glorify tough issues, you get a public that thinks they are fictional.
I want to know what happened to the whole message that pregnancy is a negative thing when it happens in your teens.
Just like in my last article, when I mentioned that child actors have an issue telling if things are imaginary or real, the same is true for the audience that watches these shows about teen pregnancy like 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. I never watched full seasons of this crap because these shows are sending the opposite message. While this article deals with what I have seen in Secret Life, let it be known I am no supporter of other shows that capitalize on children in such a manner.
