Regardless, how would you deal with this problem? Any other options or thoughts I missed are welcome, obviously, as well. "Nearly two million women younger than 20 were served by publicly supported family planning centers (abortion clinics) in 2005; these teens represented one-quarter of the centers’ contraceptive clients. Despite having declined, the U.S. teen pregnancy rate continues to be one of the highest in the developed world. It is more than twice as high as rates in Canada (28 per 1,000 women aged 15–19 in 2006) and Sweden (31 per 1,000)" http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/FB-ATSRH.html

The feminist hatred of marriage and families makes "teen pregnancy" into some new wrong. The reason that young women start to bleed and are biologically ready to make babies at about age 12 or 13 is because that is the age that 100,000 generations of their mothers got pregnant and started having families. Even that is old compared to most other species. The best biological years for women to get pregnant and begin bearing their children is in the middle of their teen years, and no amount of feminist anti-family hate is going to change that any time soon.<br />
<br />
The highest rate of "teen pregnancy" ever recorded in the US since statistics began being counted was in 1957. In that year well over 95% of pregnant "teens" were happily married women. Feminists hated them and hated their happy lives.<br />
<br />
Getting pregnant and making babies is NORMAL for young women. Its who they are. Its how their bodies work. Its MOTHER NATURE doing her thing. No amount of stupid feminism will change it. As a culture we need to support and protect young women, not hate them and block them.

Yes, Direlight. The feminist/liberal/gay gang want an end of white Europeans through non-breeding and aborting babies, with the replacement of whites by cultures that still breed.

Best Answer

my thoughts are it was their fault so they deal with it. They can do whatever they would like, as if they were adults having a child. They could abort it, put it up for adoption or keep it. they have they exact same choises adults do. This topic kind of angers me, teenagers should be able to have kids if they want to, its honestly their choise. they should just be warned about school and financial difficulties that come along with the child. its not like its illegal or anything. personally i dont want kids young but thats just my personal choise

Best Answer

If a teenager is promiscuous, careless and irresponsible enough to have unprotected intercourse then I believe she should face the consequences, because I do not agree with abortion in this case. I hope the best for the new young mother and hope and pray she grows in maturity along with the baby growing inside of her. For sure life will be more challenging for that teen, but there is always a way for both her and her baby to make it through well in the world and many other people who can be willing to help out too.<br />
I believe abortion is a quick fix and doesn't necessarily mean the individual will learn higher responsibility or be more conservative next time around. To me, it is only tolerable in cases of rape, ******, or if the mother's life is in jeopardy or if the child will be born with a debilitating lifelong disease. Younger women or otherwise should not abuse having an abortion due to irresponsibility or likewise.

Hello

Best Answer

I come from a family of 3 children. Being the youngest, I am the only one who is not adopted. My mom became pregnant when she was in her 20's but lost the baby. The Dr. told her she would never have children. So they adopted two babies. 10 years down the line, my mom did become pregnant. She hid her pregnancy from my dad for a long time, because she knew my dad didn't want another mouth to feed and knew he would want her to abort me. I believe that everychild is a gift from God. And I truly believe in adoption. I believe that the mother needs support from her parents most of all. I believe the dad needs the support from his parents as well. I think the reason so many people abort is because they are scared, and they don't have the support. I have tried to teach my children to wait on sexual relationships because there is consequences. You have to be able to deal with those consequences. Even if you don't become pregnant because you are using the right birth control, a condition is involved that could not only leave you with a sexually transmitted disease, but with a broken heart. When you have sex, you do it with a part of your heart that will always be there. Guard your heart, and wait for the right person and the right age. I have told my kids to hold off. But I have also told them that if they ever do become pregnant, that I will support them. They also know where I stand on abortion too. <br />
I think of the picture where it shows the fine for destroying eagle eggs, yet it is ok to destroy an embryo? Come on people. Take this seriously. I think that teenage mothers need to hear the horriable truths as to what it is like to have a life tore out of you and killed. Praying for all who are even thinking about abortion, to understand what life truly means, and to truly find Jesus and let Jesus walk you through your desision. Hand it over to God! He will walk you through it all. Hugs and Amen!

It would be interesting to know the ethnicity of the teens, but that would not be politically correct. As long as society is afraid of identifying the under-class as a major source of the problem, we are condemned to being saddled with them. All the hand wringing and social programs will not substitute for a stable family life and role models that are positive.

Best Answer

You do know girls were married and pregnant hundreds of years ago, right? But I guess your point is, why so much with higher mortality rates, education, and technology? I don't know, and I'm a mix of both but it all comes down to lack of parenting and people thinking abstinence only sex ed is good. Teens are going to screw, its just best we teach them how to use condoms and birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

Best Answer

People also lived far shorter lives and matured quicker. They were also married, as opposed to single teenage mothers left and right.

Best Answer

Yeah, I know. I made that point.

Best Answer

Personally, I think it's a very disturbing trend. I teach High school and it's a little scary to hear a girl talking about missing school because her baby is ill, or some 17 year old boy grousing about Child support. I think we need better education, but I don't really think that will solve the problem.

Best Answer

Don't even get me started. I was a child of a teen parent. I'm not gonna bash all teen parents. But I strongly believe that you shouldn't be having children with anyone unless you love them and are married to them. Society is the same as it was years back. The only one I hope the best for is the child, unless the parent was rapped or etc.

Best Answer

It use to be a stigma being a teen and pregnant now its become a norm . If young women are going to be sexually active they should take precautions . I'm in favor of free birth control and free (but paid for with tax $) clinical exams for women of all ages . Let women be in control of their bodies and what comes out of it . If a woman has sex and allows herself to get pregnant its her sole responsibility . Why should a man/boy be responsible for her mistake . When birth control became widely available I remember women were saying it was liberating well its time to liberate the man .

Best Answer

Totally disagree with you! Sex is a relationship. It is just as much the responsibility of the guy as it is her. I'm pretty sure she didn't get pregnant on her own. Own Up!

Best Answer

no it isn't a relationship its two people engaging in an act . if I shook your hand and you got a cold do you expect me to buy your medicine ?. if there was a birth control switch on the side of her head men would be sure it is in the off position but there is nothing like that available for him its in her hands . If she decided on an abortion is the man consulted ...No so why should he be responsible for her decision to become pregnant give birth and support her for the rest of her life .

Best Answer

It is obvious that you don't take any responsibility. If you have a cold, why are you even shaking someones hand? You are a selfish, irresponsable, and unloving person. I see why you think sex is just an act. You don't know how to love. Praying you will open your eyes one day, and discover God.

Best Answer

you got me wrong . I was in a relationship and the woman stopped taking birth control without my knowledge , we had discuss not having kids , had she told she had stop I would not of had sex with her . Now I'm forced to go thru her to talk to my son while she coaches him in the background . I wont mention how when child services called me down to find out why she was collecting welfare , I had copies of checks I had given her through out her pregnancy they ask her why was she doing that when I was meeting my responsibilities . well after she was investigated they saw that this was her way avoiding having to work and made her pay back all the money she had collected . I only speak about what I know . BTW there is no god

Best Answer

Ok. I know I have no right to judge you! Because I certernly do not know you. I do agree with you, that women do have to take responsiblility too. But that doesn't mean that you can get out of the responsibility too. And yes, I am a Christian! I do believe whole heartedly in Jesus at the cross of clavery.

Best Answer

Uh, no. It never was a stigma for being a teen and pregnant. It was only "wrong" to be a single mother. Being married with children has been NORMAL for young women for a hundred thousand generations of mothers. That is the evolutionary reason why most young women are biologically ready to make babies at the age of 12 or 13. Evolution and biology respond to what women did for thousands of generations, not what modern feminists want to change.
What has always been NORMAL is for young women to marry men who are old enough to be economically able to support a family, usually 10 or more years older than she. Its the same in most species for males to be the older males.

when I was 13 a girl in my high school got pregnant we never saw her again in that small town , we're not talking about the pilgrims or biblical times , I'm talking about within my lifetimes when the worse thing a young girl could do was to embarrass her her family .

Best Answer

you can believe in what ever you want but down here on earth AIDs is killing people , Some women say they can't stand condoms and choose to engage in high risk sex and if they catch something its her fault soooo why not if she gets a baby in the womb isn't that her fault as well . why should she be rewarded with a monthly check . I'm trying to make women more responsible is that so wrong since 99.9 % of all children born come out of women .

That said there's a very strong correlation between abstinence-ba<x>sed education and higher teen pregnancy and STI rates. REAL sex education is vital and does seriously help. Teens have always had sex, and will continue to have sex. So let's get them some ******* condoms and educatino about how they work.

We have that in many schools already..was waiting for someone to use this angle.

I think around a third of schools have said that abstinence is the focus of their sex education curriculum. That isn't the only contributing factor to teen pregnancy, but it certainly isn't helping.

I think we should focus on the bigger picture, even if it is at one third, it is a minority of schools..yet teen pregnancy is still high.

It happens....I think the best thing a baby could hope for is to be loved....unplanned doesn't mean unwanted...I was 23 when I had my son....now he is 21 and having a baby....my mom was 18 when she had me....young people are capable of giving of themselves, in the way a baby needs...in fact, I think young people are more attentive, in ways, because they feel they have so much to prove...the world is looking at them, waiting for them to fail at this....so they try harder...
