Teen Pregnancy Prevention: Scratch and Sniff

Scratch and Sniff
This doesn't really stink but the consequences of teen pregnancy do. And this is just part of the ugly mess you'd be getting yourself into. Get the facts at babycanwait.org

The Campaign is part of a United Way of Greater Milwaukee community effort to combat teen pregnancy in the central city by warning teens of the consequences of getting pregnant. This bus shelter is one ad in a series of monthly postings that aims to de-glamorize teen pregnancy.

i don't like the fact that they say all babies suck because they're so disgusting... it's not an ad about teen pregnancy, it's an "anti-baby" ad...

i do appreciate the copy though. it is inventive.

it's not saying that all babies suck. it's pointing out what's true for 99% of teenage parents: that they're not ready to deal with being a parent. They're just talking about stinking nappies because nappies are immediate and sensory, unlike abstract concepts like responsibility, which would be much harder to bring to life in a striking way.

what a great ad! disgusting, but totally gets the point across! I wish more young girls were aware of how hard it truly is to take care of a child. The poopy diapers aren't even that big of a deal when you're a mom.
