Teen pregnancy is a big problem in our society. Been a pregnant and been a teen it’s a big deal because it effects you life from the day the child come in your life from dropping out of school to missing schools and from having to live off welfare and not been able to do the daily activities you use to can do. Being the parent at such a young age takes away many opportunities for you. You now can’t go and explore the possibilities of your future. You are now forced to explore the opportunities of the future of your child. They now become number one in your life. They must be the first thing you think about when you wake up, and the last thing you think about before you go to sleep. There’s no more going out with your friends and you can forget about the club or team you were or want to be on. Most teenagers, when they find out they are going to become parents drop out of school and wait until they have the baby to get there G.E.D.
Teen pregnancy can be planned, or not planned. Teens still have unprotected sex and be knowing t he consequences that it come with but most teens don’t believe catching a disease or been pregnant can happen to them unless they experience it self. I know a friend that got pregnant at the age of 15 and had a disease at the same time the friend didn’t believe that it would happen to her she knew not using a condom could turn into pregnancy or even a std. Teen pregnancy can occur by getting sexual force into having sex or unplanned pregnancy by not using a condom or some teens want to have a baby. Every year approximately one million teenage girls become pregnant in the United States, about a third of these teens abort their pregnancies, another 14 percent lose their pregnancies to miscarriage, and the remaining 52 percent teens bear children. Of the half-a-million teens that give birth annually, 72 percent are unmarried and 75 percent are giving birth for the first time. More than 175,000 of these new moms are age 17 years or younger.

The consequences of been a teen mom and keep the baby is dropping out of school or waiting to the birth of the baby to go back to get diploma or G.E.D, or go on welfare, have a low income job and also have to live of their parents and have support for them to take care their child cause most teens not fully stable and out on their own to raise a child by their selves. Another consequence when been a teen mom is sometimes the teen chooses to give the child for adoption because they know they can’t provide a better life but others who agree to give the baby for adoption change their mind at birth once they see and hold the baby and see it with their own eyes. Another consequences is abortion some teens choose to get abortion reasons for abortions is financial problems, and teens thinking how the baby going to change their life. Been a teen mom is a big deal because getting abortion and all the consequences that come after the abortion is serious such as death teens who aborted in the year prior to their deaths were 60 percent more likely to die of natural causes, seven times more likely to die of suicide, four times more likely to die of injuries related to accidents. Another consequence of abortion is breast cancer women having abortions increased their risk of getting breast cancer before age 45 by 50% and also having complications at birth in a handicap newborn in later pregnancies.
I feel abortion is a good thing a bad thing; it’s a good thing because a lot of teens have goals and a future ahead of them and having a baby is not the good thing to do. And some might feel giving the baby up for adoption is to hard; if the teen mom has aids or std don’t want to give birth so decide to have an abortion. And also if the teen mom got rape it would be a good idea to get abortion because getting rape is something you would have to live with for the rest of your life and giving birth to a child and every time she looks at the baby it would remind her of that tragic incident The reason why I feel it’s bad idea to get abortion because if you have health problems during the procedure you can die and also you taking someone else life away by getting abortion most teens know the consequences of not using a condom but still to do wrong so keeping a baby can be a lesson to the teen mom. She lies down and let the young man not use a condom she knew the consequences and the effects. That’s why I feel teenagers to wait to have sex with anyone a lot of teens is peer pressure to have sex feel if all their friends doing it they feel it’s the cool thing to do. A lot of male teenagers would lie and tell a female what she want to hear just to have a sexual intercourse with them and the females always fall for it , all it take is one time a condom can break or using unprotected sex to become a teen pregnant mom
