Let's see. What kind of teenage are we talking? Like, very early teens - thirteen, fourteen, or fifteen.. hell, even sixteen? Or seventeen and up?

Because if little thirteen year olds are having sex, there's a big problem.
Don't get me wrong, when I was thirteen, I thought it'd be cool to have sex.
Now I'm sixteen, and looking back on it, I realize how stupid that assumption was - and I also think I'm still too young for it now.

So, think on this. Two thirteen year olds are having sex. Woops. Girlie forgot her BCP and the guy broke his condom. Sucks to be them, neh?

Personally I'm pro-choice. Meaning if you want to put your child up for abortion, do it. However, if it starts to be Sex, Preggers, Abortion, Sex, Preggers, Abortion, Sex, Preggers, Abortion, Sex, Preggers, Abortion..... then there's gotta be a stop to it.

I'm not against abortion, but when it becomes a cycle like that, then there should be no more abortions for said individual.

But teen pregnancy... ouch. =/ I'd love to say that they took part in intercourse, so therefore, they should care for the baby, but they're thirteen. They have their whole lives ahead of them.

Humanity isn't perfect... so of course most of the kids that had sex and got preggers are gonna keep at it.

I believe that you shouldn't have sex unless you're prepared and willing to take care of a baby should complications during intercourse (BCP forgotton or a busted condom) arise.

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.


Yes, 14 Sai no Haha is an AMAZING series, about a girl who gets pregnant. Ending is kinda obvious... kinda not.. I won't tell you how. It didn't make me cry, but it was absolutely heart warming. BUT it showed the drama, of teenage pregnancy (not all cause.. lots of miracles there. So she was just lucky). The drama was kinda LOL (her dad's face.. lol).

But it also showed how teenage parents when deciding not to abort, are left scarred, or just don't care about the child. It's also said how it's very dangerous to have a child at an age younger than 16. But... yeah... no sex = the right safe sex. Or birth control... seriously, not condoms... they'll have holes.. but use both, if you want to be super super super safe.

Great series..

Often I laugh at the pregnant teenagers. Just for shits and giggles. Unless it's someone I actually like (hypocritical, but you can blow me.) Often then I'll try to spend time with them, etc.


I usually get away from them dude. It's lame to remind them that child support is due.

... this topic... I have my views, I'm not going to get into too much detail, but a good portion of my cousins are teen moms. Personally, I don't like the idea of kids with kids. I agree completely with Nikkichi on pro-choice. If you chose to have sex and something happens deal with it. You should have the choice to do what YOU want. Those stupid girls that have the baby to trap their guy piss me off to the max. I'm not going to get too much into this, because people and their Religious views are going to start coming in, but whatever. Think before you act.

You want a solution? Have sex after marriage...I mean, come on.

Horny ass teenagers. -_-; And, condoms aren't the only item for safe sex. Diaphragms, and birth control pills are also a solution. Heck, do them all at once if you see it fit. XD However, why not just not have sex until marriage? I think sex at an age like 13-16 is kinda wack anyway...

Don't want a kid, wear a condom or something. Or don't have sex. If I had to choose between the two, though, I'd definitely avoid the later.

These people should have read more fairy tales, like Sleeping Beauty. Good things happen for those who wait. Like the prince 100 years later in the story. But for those that came too early, well too bad they got stuck and died by the thorns.

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.


Teenage pregnancy. I personally think that abstinence is the way to go until marriage, but if you must do it then make sure you use proper protection or else you shouldn't be surprised of the possible consequence of pregnancy. It has now happened to two of my cousins, both of whom I thought would be the last to be in that predicament. But see, things happen and what else could you do? So everyday, my sisters and I are reminded of our cousins' situations and how we shouldn't end up like them.

I just think it's wrong that teenagers are getting pregnant. I heard about these two high school students going at it behind our neighbor's house, down in the alley in between the recycling bin and the trash can. I mean, come on now, that's just being silly. I won't be surprised to hear if that girl turns out to be pregnant. I've also had classmates back in high school who ended up dropping out because they got pregnant and the guys don't seem to want take responsibility.

If they really want to have sex, then at least make an effort in getting the right protection (i.e. condoms, birth control pills, and some other ones the nurse/physician could tell them about).

During our teenaged years we make a lot of major decisions about our lives and take on a lot of new responsibilities. We think that we know everything and that we're old enough to know waht's good for us and don't listen to anyone... This kind of attitude is what leads teenagers into experimenting (not just with sex but with drugs too...) and then when the inevitable happens they're stuck.
Teenagers aren't mature enough to be parents. They can't handle it, they're children themselves no matter what they think. They have hope if their parents are willing to help them raise the child... but most parents don't the first option they come up with is either adoption, some even come up with abortion.

In my opinion people should wait until they're married to have sex and kids...

i'm not exactly sure what "teenage" would constitute as... but for 17-18-19 year old mothers to be pregnant... there's a whole bunch of these in society nowadays but hopefully they have no regrets and are able to properly care for their children and have supportive family members/guardians.


Teenage pregnancy is technically defined as occurring when women under the age of 20 become pregnant.
