Which would you prefer to see go down. Abortion rates or Teen pregnancy rates?

Be as honest as you can. Personally, i would rather see teen pregnancy rates go down. Speaking for the UK of course.

What about you guys?

  • if we stopped pretending like our kids were stupid and taught comprehensive, accurate sex education, including information on STD'S and BC then maybe both would go down. abstinence is a cute dream, but not realistic in today's world...and by teaching abstinence only sex ed we are dooming our kids to fail at making smart choices about sex and their reproductive health.

  • Well, you could reduce both rates by doing one thing. Keep your pants on. People shouldn't be having sex unless they are prepared to deal with the consequences. Getting an abortion is not dealing with the consequences. It is merely making it go away.

  • Why do you want to see teen pregnancy rates go up kabbot....or is that in relation to abortion rates going down.

  • Easy to say keep your pants on. What about the women who have been raped and feel they can't carry? What about women whose life is at risk because of the pregnancy? Sheesh
