Model Jourdan Dunn,19,who is seven months pregnant, attended the Issa Fashion Show during London Fashion Week on September 20, 2009 in London, United Kingdom.

Meanwhile ,  a recent DeKalb County(Georgia,USA) high school graduate named Ginny McNulty, 19, has written an opinion piece on peer health education. Ginny’s opinion may make some of you put less of a blame on teenagers like Jourdan (for getting pregnant at a young age) and more on the educational system:

…Even though last spring President Barack Obama ended federal funding for abstinence-only programs — many of which proved to be ineffective in delaying sexual activity until marriage — not much has changed yet in Georgia.

As a senior in high school I joined the Teen Action Group (TAG) — Planned Parenthood’s teen peer health educators — because I wanted to empower myself and my fellow teens on matters of sexual health.

Now, I see firsthand how responsive teens are to complete and accurate information. Young people are thirsty for knowledge and recognize how important this information is to their lives.

I have seen how well teens respond to messages from other teens, often even better than they do with adult educators.

For many of my peers who have only had ineffective programs in their schools, I am thankful that peer educators like me and the TAG group will continue to be sources of good information in our communities.

The goal of this program is to educate young people about delaying sexual activity and utilizing good decision-making skills and contraception as a way of reducing the number of teen pregnancies in our state.

To schools and policymakers: Providing us with abstinence- only-until-marriage programs limits our decision-making abilities. Withholding information about safer sex and contraception could put our lives at risk.”

  1. As much as it is a blessing I feel bad for her, because her pregnancy was obviously not on purpose. 19 is NOT grown and it’s not about the money she has. It’s about the best care for the child, and I don’t think a 19 year old can do that.

  2. Oh please! Some of you make me laugh! Ha ha/

    Seriously, 19 is grown. She is no longer
    a child, I am sure she pays her own bills
    and takes care of herself.

    And she looks happy. Who the baby’s father is,
    well that is frankly, NONE of your business.

    People had kids much younger and got married
    younger just back in the 50′s even.

    Get lives.

  3. It’s not simply her age that bothers me, but that Jourdan has/had tremendous potential in the modeling – an industry that places a high value on looks and size. If she doesn’t snap exactly right, it’ll be talked about. Jourdan has stepped off the treadmill just when she was hitting her stride. The fashion is too daggone fickle. Money runs out when there is no new money coming it. Just not the most responsible move. I wish her the best though. She is a beautiful glowing mommy!

  4. I am confused…she is 19 right? Is she not an adult? She is young yes BUT she is a young adult. I hope the baby is healthy.

  5. How could any black person support Planned Parenthood? They were founded by racists who were members of the American Eugenics Society. A feature length documentary has just been released about this , called: Maafa21. It is well researched and includes the racist quotes and audio by their people, check it out here: [link removed]

  6. Where is the father of this child (her baby not her personally) I keep seeing all this photos of her pregnant but I’ve yet to see one with her and a baby father.

  7. Seems like they all the supermodels are pregnant. Jourdan, Heidi Klum, Adrianna Lima, Giselle (whatever her last name is) all have babies due this year.

  8. She don’t even look pregnant here and i didn’t realize how pretty she is. She looks great, good luck to u and your baby Jourdan. As for Planned Parenthood. Don’t get me started about Planned Parenthood.

  9. SHE IS A GORGEOUS YOUNG WOMAN AND SHE IS OLD ENUFF TO HAVE A BABY. SHE ISNT 14YRS OLD, SHE IS 19YRS OLD AND BANKING $$$$$. KNOCKED UP BECAUSE SHE IS CUTE, DO SOME OF U THINK BEFORE U WRITE?JEEZ. DO UR THANG YOUNG LADY AND CONGRATS ON UR COMING NEW ARRIVAL.

  10. I forgot Jourdan was prego. Dang that sucks. She is young. I bet some dude knocked her up because she’s pretty.

  11. She reminds me of that model on ANTM. Think her name was Ya-Ya or something like that? They look like they could be sisters. The cycle that Eva won and Tacarra was on. Best season imo.
