Kiddie condoms needed in Western Australia

The West Australian government might want to consider importing some of those tiny little Hot Shot condoms:

The Sunday Times can reveal that the number of very young mothers in WA jumped by almost 20 per cent in the past 12 months.

WA Births Registry figures show that 73 girls, aged 15 or under, registered as parents in 2009 - up from 62 in 2008.

This included 11 babies born to 14 year olds and 57 babies born to 15 year olds

Five babies were born to 13-year-olds. That's a total of 73 babies born to mothers under the age of consent: children bearing children.

What are the chances a baby born to a young girl will ultimately be anything other than a burden to the state? Not good, I wager.
