Teen Pregnancy...

This is just bad and all i can do ask as WTH?!?!? 5 girls at my girlfriend school are pregnant, one has been since January 2012... and i mean they are now Freshmen, 9th grade people! They are 14-15 years old and pregnant! I dont want to be mean at all or offend anyone, but you are just loosing your life there and taking up one of child care and lots of stress. Oh and yeah they could of NOT let it happen, maybe if they dont have sex or they use protection... they did this to themselves really and its at the cost of their stupidity, im sorry but it is. One girls mom isnt helping her with the baby so shes moving in with her boyfriend whos 16 ... okay thats not gonna work out and its gonna end badly, sadly it will. Okay i cant really feel sorry for them, its not my problem, im not gonna have this issue but its just bad and it cant believe it.

Ill agree, i dont know the situation but heck if the mom aint happy with her i dont blame her but dont just abandon your own child thats freaking pregnant! But I run on, "if you cant support yourself, dont have a kid."

I do not support it however i have 2 friends that are pregnant one is due pretty soon and her life is a mess. The other has been with her boyfriend almost 2 years and while I know there is that heavy possibility of it not working out he is working and trying his best to support them and they have my friends families support. I do agree though that it is too early and you are losing the freedom and fun that being a kid is supposed to be but that is their choice. The 14-15 thing though that is just plain bad parenting and just plain out selfishness on the kids part for wanting to keep this baby hopefully they go adoption atleast.

Ohh, there were more than 5 freshman/sophomores in my school that were pregnant, and 3 in my grade that had their kids beginning of our senior year..Not to mention the dozens of children that had miscarriages or abortions.

While I don't see an issue with having sex (I did it, I can't be a hypocrit), there is an issue with not using anything and thinking it's great when you get pregnant.. o.o I know one of the freshman was actually TRYING to get pregnant last year..absolutely ridiculous. Children cannot have children and think they can parent them. I'm 18 and would die if by some miracle I got pregnant..I have college and horses to train after that..not only would I not be able to afford a child, I wouldn't be a suitable parent because I still can't always control my anger issues. I might never be able to be a suitable parent..but I'm not planning on having a child before I feel that I am.

If anything, these kids having kids should give the baby up for adoption or to a willing parent/family member to raise, IMHO. While I have no issue with abortion (what I personally would do if I wasn't ready to be a parent), not everyone agrees with it, and I see it especially with the younger groups of kids coming into high school. While they may be pro-life or what-not, they need to realize that they aren't ready for a baby and figure out a plan. 14yr olds don't have jobs and a steady place to stay. I know some parents would try to force their child into having the child and being made to take care of it as "punishment" for getting pregnant..but I feel that that is completely unjust and wrong to the new child, as they're not going to be raised right and the majority of them (around here, from what I understand) turn out to be drug addicts, non-paid prostitutes, etc. It's no good for either of those children, both mentally and physically.

But, that's just my take on it and I don't expect everyone to agree with it. To each their own.

Thats just crazy! I dont know how big your town was but ****! Okay if kids have sex... just they should be responsible about it. You read my mind there too, it drives me crazy when the parent and other kids are all like "oh im so happy for you, your gonna be a great parent". And yeah id rather not be a parent right now either, okay i got enough issues as is and im working on getting a job! Then my girlfriend mom would kill me. Plus my girlfriend well speaking is a little young be having sex. That makes alot of sense too, they themselves with school and the fact theyre 14-15 they cant raise a kid themselves. Okay i just agree with the whole half of your post there ;) And im all for if women want a abortion, they should be able too including these kids especially. Okay just going with abortion vs adoption... abortion they kid doesnt have to go and for 9 months be pregnant... and adoption, they still need to give birth to the child and carry it for 9 months and go through all that. That alone is stressful enough! Best to just not get pregnant in the first place!

I agree with you guys I am 17 and just entering my senior year between trying to find a job, training my new soon to be horse and dealing with family stuff I'm pretty sure I would die if I somehow ended up pregnant. I love kids and everyone tells me I will be an awesome mom but I don't plan on having any till atleast end of my 21st year, atleast!! I plan to experience as much as possible now do college and what not I could not handle being a mom.
