Special Commentary by Big Dan: "I was my friend's 9/11 thread on FaceBook and I posted several 9/11 links. No controversial comments, just links. The next thing you know, I was banned from commenting on FaceBook. It said I was blocked for 'REPEATEDLY ABUSING THE COMMENTS SYSTEM'. Note the word 'REPEATEDLY'. I've been on FaceBook for a long time and posted many comments and never ONCE including this time was I EVER 'abusive'."

The Gloucester 18 [Trailer] - Coming Soon To DVD

The Realities of Teen Pregnancy - In 2008, eighteen high school girls from Gloucester, Massachusetts, were accused of making a pact to become pregnant. The mainstream media perpetuated and sensationalized the story, with reporters flying in from as far away as Australia, the UK, and Brazil. The Gloucester 18 looks behind all the headlines and hype to tell the real stories of these girls, and in the process puts a human face on a startling statistic: that the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the developed world. The filmmakers draw on interviews with the girls, their families, high school counselors, physicians, and media personalities to unpack what really happened, and explore the complicated emotional and practical challenges faced by teens on the brink of motherhood. An excellent resource for high school health classes, teen pregnancy prevention programs, and courses in psychology, adolescent development, public health, and education. - Directed by John Michael Williams
