Teenage pregnancy

Causes of teenage pregnancy

Although recently movies like Juno have glamorized teen pregnancy and offered alternatives to abortion, society and the government generally frown upon it. Teenage pregnancy rates went down for decades, until a recent surge resulted in the rate going up, according to President Obama. He is alarmed as teenage pregnancy costs $7 billion annually. He promises to do something about it. Meanwhile, teens observe their own mothers or other single mothers in the workplace, and think, why not me?

It is the old dilemma about how to deal with curious teenagers about sex. Sex education or abstinence? How can we dare to be hypocrites?

One in three U.S. teen girls are expected to get pregnant at least once before 20 years old. Teenage pregnancy has vital consequences for teen girls and teen boys. Having a baby when a teen alters the future for both boy and girl. College education usually is put on hold, and instead of growing up and experiencing life, the teens must face the financial burden of raising a child. When they do not even know themselves, they must educate others.

Effects of teenage pregnancy

When a teen girl finds out she is pregnant, she and the father face difficult decisions. No longer is the girl shipped off to a halfway house. She may or may not involve her parents in the decision. Some teens decide to have the child and put it up for adoption. They meet the parents and can feel guilt-free that they are doing the right thing for the baby and themselves.

Some teens decide to keep the baby, and get married. Other times, the grandparents raise the child, allowing the mother to pursue her education. The extended family has worked well in this situation and others in modern times where the traditional nuclear family has fallen apart. However, it should be noted that children of teenage pregnancy face greater risk of poverty, behavioral problems, poor academic performance, incarceration and further teen pregnancy.

Some teens choose to end their teenage pregnancy through abortion. However, this can be problematic for teens in states where parents must be informed before an abortion can be performed.

Teen pregnancy can also be difficult on the fathers. It can strain the relationship with his girlfriend and with her parents. It alters his future because he must support the child, and cannot go to college to better himself.

Teenage pregnancy is a serious issue, and all sides of the problem must be considered before a decision is made. If you cannot talk to your parents, seek counseling or a third party to air all sides. It's a life-altering decision, and must be thought about.

    Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews

    Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

    I would like to add a testimonial regarding the test. I took the gender prediction test back in February of 2007 when I had just found out I was pregnant to find out what my husband and I were going to have. We found out we were having a baby girl according to your baby gender predictor test. You're test results were right on, the ultrasound confirmed it, and our beautiful baby girl was born in November 2007. I recommend your site to everyone I know having a baby! What a different and amazing way to find out what you are having! Thank you!

    I did this back when I first found out that I was pregnant, and did not know whether I wanted to believe it or not. My sister in law had mentioned your website to me as her sister had used it and you were right both times for her also. I have not had the baby yet, due in August but the Dr that did my ultra sound said she was 99.9% sure it was a boy. I don't know how you do it but I will be passing your website info around to anyone that I know is pregnant. I was originally hoping for a girl by I am now ecstatic that it is another boy. Thank you :)

    Dear Fortune Baby, I took your baby gender predictor test with my first pregnancy and you predicted we would have a boy and you were correct! This time around you are predicting a girl and I hope you are right! I am only 6 weeks pregnant, but I am looking forward to my ultrasound. I will let you know the results. Thank you.

    I am writing to let you know that we did the 4 year gender prediction test and chose the month to get our girl. We already have 2 boys and thought we would try it. We had 3 ultrasounds through out the pregnancy, that all stated we were having a girl! We just delievered our beautiful baby girl 4 days ago! I have already recommended your web site! Thanks so much!
