Well that's a broad question. So I'll post as best I can what this topic is asking. First of all, teens shouldn't be messing around that results in teen pregnancy. But if it happens, it can't be undone. I am against abortion not just because of belief in preservation of life, but it actually hurts the mother. Now if at any time the condition is life threatening and abortion must be applied, then so be it. But if the teen is capable of giving birth without problem, I suggest they take that course. Shame, embarassment, all the other emotions will be dealt accordingly and I have no straight answer in handling those kinds of problems. They have to work it out with their families and/friends themselves.

hmm okae i mean is teenage pregnancy good or bad or so so or 'none of my business as long as its not me' type and if it were you what would you do?
how do you face ur frens n parents?

I think a slice of this issue that doesn't get any limelight is that, even if a young couple is by some fluke fully capable of childrearing, are they really ready for the lifetime commitment? For example, take your dream job: If you go into it fresh out of school, you are going to be doing it for the rest of your youth. Even if childrearing is something you want more than any of the other options life presents, it is such an involved process that I wouldn't want to wish it on a couple whose peers are still lighting farts. Besides, time could only make you more ready (up to a reasonable point!)

Now, if say... it becomes a matter of asking can a teen pregnancy work, my answer changes. Many teen pregnancies are successful with family support. Most teens have barely a wisp on an income and kids are not cheap dates. And to be honest, the pressures of what it would take to make it work are very daunting, and many people turn away from the challenge.

But maybe I'm talking about teen parents and not the actual issue. Pregnancy is the first stage of the adventure.

There's always adoption if they can't handle it.

I feel like the question that this thread might be asking is either: should teen mothers abort or can a teenager be a good parent. There is no controversy surrounding whether or not teenage girls can become pregnant, it seems more of a question of should they.

I think sexual abstinence is the best to prevent undesired pregnancy

There's this J-drama called "14-sai no haha"; the title literally means 14 year-old mother. I portrays the life of a kid who gets pregnant with her lover's child and makes the decision to actually keep the baby. I can't watch it properly as of yet since the only place I've seen it uploaded is on youtube, furthermore the subtitles are in Chinese and my Nihongo isn't that good yet. Oh well.

I have a friend, and she's hell bent on having a child. She's only 17, like myself. She even considered tricking her boyfriend into getting her pregnant, so he wouldn't be able to leave her.

I convinced her not to do it because IT IS CHILD ABUSE! She hasn't gone to college, and left school at 16. She has a dead end job, and a family that would no sooner throw her out the house than replace her with a dog. And therefore she was just completely financially unstable to rear and raise a child.

Abortion is wrong. Adoption = alright, but the child may feel unwanted if they knew they were an orphan. Which in turn would cause numerous identity and psychological problems for the person. Such is with the Hodges + Tizzard study, where they discovered that institutionalised children found it harder to make friends than non-institutionalised children, and that when they did, they'd be more 'clingy'.

I'm sure I have more to post on the topic, but I'll wait to see other's responses first ^_^
