WHO EVER THOUGHT THAT JAMIE LYNN SPEARS WOULD BE A MOTHER AT 16. PEOLPE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY ARE SHOCKED, WHEN THEY JUST DONT REALIZE THAT IT'S REAL LIFE. OUR TEENAGE GENERATION IS THE HIGHEST GENERATION IN THE WORLD TO HAVE TEENAGE PREGNANCIES. MY GENERATION IS NOW MAKING IT A TREND TO BECOME PREGNANT AT AGES 14, 15, AND 16 YEARS OF AGE. AND NICKELODEON IS NOT MAKING IT ANY BETTER BY TRYING TO TAKE THE SHOW OF THE AIR. WHEN THEY THINK THEY HAVE A BAD PROBLEM THEY CAN MAKE IT BETTER, BY TELLING YOUNGER KIDS IT'S NOT RIGHT TO GET PREGNANT AT AN EARLY AGE, THEY SHOULD ENCOURAGE KIDS INTO NOT HAVING SEX AT AN EARLY AGE. THEY SHOULD HOW SOME OF THE HARDSHIPS INTO BEING PREGNANT. AND MAKE IT INTO A REAL LIFE TELEVISION SHOW!!!!!

You don't have a right to boss Nickelodeon around. If they want to withdraw their sanction from those who display behavior they disapprove of (such as becoming pregnant at 16, usually an irrational behavior although I don't know the details,) they have every right to do so. There are consequences of employment as a public figure, and those consequences are, you have to become what your employer deems as worthy.

If you are dissatisfied, start your own television network, PTN for pregnant teens network. See what kind of profits you make :D.

Rebe I agree...Jamie Lynn has just as many right as you or I do. PLUS she has the added bonus of having lots of money and LOTS of admirers. No one has the RIGHT to a job. A job is a privilage and like all privilages it can be taken away as hers was. The company/television station has to think about what looks good and what is a bad representation to their company. At this time Jamie Lynn Spears is a bad representation. Much like if you were coming into a meeting with important clients wearing house shoes and slippers and looked a wreck. Not a very good impression of the company or its expectations is it?

Jamie Lynn being a "person with rights" does not mean ANYTHING to this debate. Do you know why? Because the stockholders of Nickelodeon are people with rights too, and it is THEIR rights, not Jamie Lynn's, that are relevant here (property rights). There is no such thing as a right to a job, as a right is a prohibition on other's interference in something to do with your life, not an entitlement to extract by force the property of another person.

Are you a thief rebe? If not, why are you trying to establish a "right" to steal?

Honestly jamie lynn is a person with rights and a life to live. She should never have to gie up her job because of a personal issue. Yes little girls look up to her but little girls also look up to their un-wed parents that had them or people around them that are having sex. This is something that will have now or later...its unfortunate that it happened so soon but whatever who gives a "f". She's a effin woman now...lol.

I agree that this show should have been taken off of the air. Much like how Miss America candidates have been taken out of the race because of bad pictures coming out or because of pictures with alcohol in their hands Jamie Lynn Spears is held to a higher standard because of who she is. Because she is an actress. She has little girls looking up to her that idolize her and that want to be just like her. How is getting pregnant while not married and sixteen years old a good example? It's not and Nickelodeon had every right to take the show off of the air.

"BY TELLING YOUNGER KIDS IT'S NOT RIGHT TO GET PREGNANT AT AN EARLY AGE, THEY SHOULD ENCOURAGE KIDS INTO NOT HAVING SEX AT AN EARLY AGE."

Wow. It's "not right" to get pregnant at an early age?

Actually, teen pregnancies are dropping. So this Jamie Spears hysteria is just non-sense.

first off, what is the debate about?
second, its sad to see this go on with this family, it is very degrading to their public image in my opinion, and yet many people still support them, making them think all the crap that their doing is A-OK.
Third, Nickelodeon has every right to take shows off their station, it is THEIR station. Nick appears to mostly a child/family oriented audience. most families think that 16 yr olds getting pregnant is demoralizing.

Your generation hasn't started anything. In many parts of the world, girls as young as 11 and 12 years old are married off. This has been a trend for thousands of years.

LOL there is a new movie for her tv show, Zoey 101. It was about Zoey going to england, and her going for good. I thnk its a good thing that they did that, ending their show (for 8-9 months) in style.
