Teen Mom soundtrack aims to stop teen pregnancy with actual songs, not audio of babies crying

MTV has released a soundtrack of music featured on both seasons of Teen Mom, and proceeds from the sale will go charity.

The soundtrack is on iTunes and includes 12 songs, not tracks of crying babies or fights between teen parents unprepared for the consequences of producing a human life that requires constant care and attention for years and years and years.

The proceeds benefit the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, so hopefully it is not a collection of songs that will inspire people to have unprotected sex and produce more babies they can parade in front of MTV’s cameras.
