Uber trendy bargain fashion chain Forever 21 is unveiling a maternity line, entitled Love 21. Sounds cute… Well not for the angry parents in Arizona, Texas and California.
Initially the line will be available in only Five States (for now)… Arizona, Alaska, California and Texas. Alaska????
The Issue: Arizona, California and Texas are on the list of the states with the highest pregnancy rate in the Country. Controversy is stirring and many are wondering why would a teen retail chain even toy with the idea of a maternity line?? It makes you wonder…
In a statement, company reps say, “Forever 21 did not create, design or distribute Love 21 Maternity to target or appeal specifically to pregnant teens. Any relationship between teen pregnancy rates and the locations of our stores is unintentional.”
Of course, the line can also be seen on the Forever 21 website.
