That’s what the cover page of Star magazine is screaming. All I have to say is: Good for you! Obviously, Jamie Lynn has the capacity to think for herself, and possibly for think for the good of her children; something both her mother, Lynne Spears, and sister, Britney Spears, are obviously incapable of. Although, according to other media Britney Spears was the first to suggest to Jamie Lynn not keeping the baby, back in early January. From the PopCrunch:
“Britney Spears wants her pregnant sixteen year old sister to put her unborn baby up for adoption. The pop mom had warned her sister “not to ruin her life by going through with the pregnancy” and it appears that Brit’s advice has lead to a split for the Spears sisters.
A spywitness tells The National Enquirer:
“Britney told Jamie Lynn it was best for her to get an abortion and move on with her life and career and not to look back.”
“Britney is worried that Jamie Lynn has ruined her budding career and she will be trapped in Louisiana with her mom as a struggling single parent.”
A feisty Jamie Lynn told her big sis that she is making “her own decision and not letting anyone tell her to get rid of her baby.”
“Jamie Lynn really thought Britney might have been the only one to understand her feelings about having a baby, since she has two babies of her own,” the Enquirer’s mole added.”
I don’t want to start the whole “pro-life vs. pro-choice” argument. But considering the Spears family’s drama with children, I don’t think abortion is the worst advice Britney could have given her. Here’s some news for Jamie Lynn: Your sister was an adult when she had her children. You are not an adult. You are a child. A sixteen year old is not ready to give birth in this era, and it’s a god damn shame that some of them, and younger still do. This chain should have been broken years ago; when is the mother going to step up to the plate, and stop being such a publicity whore? When is Britney going to finally realize that she is influencing the life of her sibling, and start acting like a role model? The world may never know, but if this is going to ever get anywhere, the right people need to take the blame. This should be an eye opener for sh*tty parents all over the world. Raise your damn kids! It is not the job of television, or teachers, or the god forsaken Internet! Get off the couch, hang up your cell phones, and pay attention!
