My Body, My Future PSA hits Regal Cinemas
Published: February 5, 2013
If you’ve seen a movie at a Regal Cinema theater lately, you may have seen the My Body, My Future public service announcement (PSA) before the show starts.
It is part of our campaign to raise awareness of and fight teen pregnancy and STDs. Other pieces of our campaign include the website you're on right now, as well as billboards and posters.
This PSA emphasizes the high cost of teen pregnancy. When making decisions about whether or not to have sex or use birth control, you may not be thinking about the consequences of those decisions. This PSA tries to highlight some of those choices and consequences.
Are you going to choose to go to the beach or buy diapers for you baby? Which would you rather buy, 70 gallons of baby formula in a year or 1,400 music downloads? Actually these aren’t choices at all, if you have a child.
If you haven’t seen the PSA, you can see it on our YouTube page. While you’re there, you can see the videos from the contest we did in Knox County Schools where we asked students to create their own PSAs. We couldn’t believe how awesome they turned out.
