Warning: The video contains uncensored racial slurs as well. More

The PSA is part of a campaign between Seventeen and bedsider.org, a website that gives information about birth control and sends reminders about when to take your pill. They’re asking women to update their Facebook statuses with “Hey, @SeventeenMagazine, I’m not ready to be a mom. I’d rather _____.” More
