I have only seen a few pregnant girls that are still in high school. But I have had friends.. Well ex friends.. Lie to me about being pregnant :/ They would make up this whole story and lie to convince people they are pregnant when they werent...

It is also a new 'fad' that is going around... I guess because of that show "16 & pregnant"... I think its downright stupid!

The thing about "safe sex" though is condoms fail, and so does birth control. I've known people to become pregnant while practising safe sex. Teens aren't old enough to be making those kinds of choices.

Once you do start making adult choices like that you should be expected to be resonsible for the choices you made. I do believe that teens should be made to carry their baby to full term before letting it go for adoption. Abortion stops beating hearts. I don't know what people think they are looking for before they consider it human life.

Hasn't anyone seen the made for TV movie about the group of high school girls who got pregnant on purpose?

I knew 13 year olds that we're pregnant when I was in junior high - and that was in no way recent!

If you cannot afford the outcome of having unsafe sex, then you need to refrain.
Teenage pregnancy is an epidemic. There are a lot of young people placing their future and lives at risk.
If you can get pregnant you can catch AIDS or any other STD.
Srh1, I agree with most of what your saying but condoms rarely break if used correctly. Find a condom open it up and fill it with water. It will hold a lot.
The sad part about teenage pregnancy is that not only the mother will most likely endure poverty for the rest of her life. The child will as well.
The children of teenage mothers are more likely to not finish highschool and to repeat the cycle by having children out of wedlock.
Young lives are being place at risk and most could have been prevented.
These abstinance only programs work only on paper.
With the way our soceity bombards the young people with sex without consequences we should not be suprised at the numbesr of teenage prenancies.
Shalom

I prefer to think of it as the way irresponsible liberal parents let their little girls run around looking and acting like hookers, we should not be surprised at the number of teenage pregnancies. There have always been a handful of single teen pregnancies - even in the middle ages when I was young. But the high number we see today is due to parents that are permissive, irresponsible, or morons...or all of the above, and to a liberal society that enables teens and encourages kiddie sex...

Faceman, I'm going to have to disagree on your last post.
The failure to address and combat the sexualization of our children has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative.
It does have a lot to do with parenting that I do agree with.
What has been proven is that parents that address the issues of sex intelligently and realisticly have children that avoid this trap.
By that I mean that the inform their children of the risk and causes of teenage preganancy and inform their children of the use of birth control.
I know just as many girls that come from religous and conservative homes that are pregnant as those that come from permissive homes.
Parents who pull their head out of the sand usually prevent this from happening.
Shalom

A thing I've seen recently (more in real life discussions than this particular thread; I haven't read all of it)... When most talk about teen pregnancy, it's always, "those girls made a terrible decision, those girls should have been more careful", etc.

What about the guys? Everyone complains the girls are overly sexualized, etc, and have a myriad of complaints about modern teenage females. Talks about teen pregnancy is usually centered about girls, like they are the ones responsible.

Which they are responsible, but it takes two to tango. What about the other half?

Girls get all the emphasis put on their virginity (or lack therefore). They are subjected to the Madonna/***** complex. They get the promise rings and stuff. A guy has sex? Well, yeah. Guys do that. *eyeroll* Girl has sex? Big deal. Girl gets pregnant? Well, she should have been more careful.


Just something I've noticed...

Women and young girls have the burden of birth control almost solely placed on them.
Young men are congratulated and idolized if they establish their virility.
Its been that way for thousands of years.
Then again condom commercials are controversial and rare.
Viagra and other enhancement drugs though are seen regularly on TV.
The message is clear, the sexuality of men should be praised and commended and birth control should be left to the woman.
There is no equality in having a baby. Shalom

Open your eyes, db...liberalism and parental permissiveness go hand in hand. Failure to recognize that is burrying one's head in the sand.

And to say that as many teen pregnancies happen in religious and conservative homes as liberal homes is bull poop. Do they happen? Of course, but conservative/religious parents exercise much more control over their kids.

Having differing views is healthy and fun, but your failure to confront reality is perplexing considering your credentials...

Faceman I am a therapist.
I have just as many conservative clients that can't control their children as liberals.
It is not a case of political identity that can cause or prevent unplanned pregnancy .
Just as I have counseled as many teens that have abused drugs and alcohol from both ends of the political spectrum.
Teen pregnancy is not necessarily a mark against the parents.
With the internet and abundant sex our children are exposed to from a very early age parents must engage their children about all aspects of sex.
Something most parents are uncomfortable with. Naturally so.
I am a liberal Faceman.
I was however a very strict parent. Being liberal has nothing to to with my parenting skills.
For the record I know of no liberal that thinks its ok for a child to be pregnant.
Making sex something that is dirty and secretive as it was in the earlier generations and by abstinece only education places our teens head in the sands.
Studies have proven that educating our teens is the best form of preventing teen pregnancy.
Look at Europe. Fewer teens pregnant and fewer abortions. Shalom
