  • Hmm because we want to be so grown up become a mom and be considered as an adult at a young age, maybe it was an accident. who knows?

  • The American teen pregnancy rate is so high because the kids are not educated. The teen pregnancy rate is Europe is LOWER than the US but they have more teens having sex. Their kids are well educated and protected. Teaching kids about protection, how pregnancy happens and giving out birth control will help lower the teen pregnancy rate. Why do people act like teen pregnancy is a new thing? It's been around for decades and the rate is lower now than it has ever been.

  • I'm not tired but I think the shows that sort of make these teens famous for a nanosecond, are sad. Bottom line, you need to support (pay) for your kid. Kids aren't equipped to do this. So often the burden lands on the grandparents and that's not fair. I feel for teens who want to get pregnant. Doing it at 40 is damn hard. Forget at 16. But ya, I don't want to pay for it.

  • i am kinda of sick of it. you can call it an accident but really how many ways are there to prevent it. not to mention teenagers don't even need to be having sex, i'm not saying i didn't when i was in high school but i was careful and smart about it. i think if you don't want to get pregnant and don't plan on getting pregnant than don't let it happen its really that simple. the expression don't be a fool wrap your tool is a great quote. get the pill use condoms dont have sex.

  • Parents are the reason the teen pregnancy rate is so high.

  • What I am sick of is people like you judging them without even knowing them.

  • Teens are getting pregnant BECAUSE they're given birth control? How does that logic not seem flawed to you? More money should be spent on education. Very little of what is spent on our government goes towards welfare programs, and even less of that goes towards teen parents.

  • Wait... let me get this straight. You're upset about condoms and other forms of BC being made readily available as well as proper education, THEN you dare be upset about teen pregnancy occurring when it is people like YOU who make the problem worse by standing in the way of kids learning how to be responsible.
