Kristen Alderson Comments on "Adult" One Life to Live Story Line

by at . Comments

Kristen Alderson is only 16 years old.

Yet the One Life to Live star admits she's involved in a "very adult story line" on the show, telling SoapCentral.com:

"As far as being a 16-year-old and pregnant... being pregnant is an adult thing, but a lot of teenage girls go through that. 750,000 teenage girls every year get pregnant."

Careful, Kids!

Such a figure may seem extreme, but a March of Dimes study confirms that more than 750,000 teenagers become pregnant each year; approximately 420,000 give birth.

"It's a very big issue and we feel very honored to be doing such a powerful storyline and hopefully educate some viewers about teenage pregnancy because it's a very big issue and it [can be] scary," added the One Life to Live actress.

One Life To Live Quotes

I don't know, something twisted. I mean, this whole place is twisted. It's like some twisted shrine of him and mother. What'd you do down here, gramps? Count your money and stare at yourself while groping at your daughter? Bastard!

Must be nice living in a world of newspapers; all your people in black and white.
