  • Support, because I am one. And if my own girls become teen moms, I will support them all the way!

  • Of course I support them, I think they need it more than anyone. If we're talking about whether I would support having children that young, I'm not sure, but it doesn't matter, it's going to happen no matter what. Happened to me and although it was a surprise, it was a good one and has helped to shape my life in the most wonderful of ways.

  • If they are already pregnant then of course I support them. My dd was a teen mom and so was I. It doesnt mean you are going to be a bad mom, it just means your life is on hold. I dont think anyone should TRY to get pregnant as a teen though. I dont support that.

  • No way do I support teens getting pregnant! Of course I would support my girls if they got pregnant.

  • Support as in not calling them names, being there for any I know, talking to them about options, etc., or support as in "Whoo! Go teen pregnancy!"? Definitely not the latter, at all, but I was a teen mom (got pregnant 3 months after I turned 18 and got married) so I kind of get how difficult it is and I try to be supportive and helpful. I wasn't pregnant in high school, but I was in college, and a newly wed with very little help from anyone, so I had my own challenges and I can relate to other young moms.
