In my opinion, the whole topic of teenage pregancy is a sensitive one, and one that not many people want to talk about. But it has gotten to the point where something needs to be done. I mean if you look in the papers recently you will have read about the 13 year old dad. How can a child be a parent, as after all, that is what he is a dad. In general, I think that is you are going to get pregnant under the age of 16, then you need to pay the consequences, after all I dont believe in abortions, as I believe that it is wrong and the easy way out.
Not many parents actually sit down with their children and have a convseration on this subject, which I think is wrong. Dont get me wrong, I'm not blaming the parents, not at all, but I think that a little more education could be the answer. If these teenagers knew exactly what they were getting themselves into, maybe they would think twice. It isnt just the responsibiltiy aspect of it, but also the finanical. It wont be the parents who pay for their baby, but us as a tax payer. I am not saying that teenagers made back parents, not at all, there are some brilliant parents out there, and thats including boys, but the ones who think that they can still lead a normal life after having a baby at such a young age are kidding themselves and if that is the case, shouldnt be having a baby at all. I could go on and on, but I think that I have expressed my feelings on this subject quite clearly.
Summary: Have a life first
