So stop coming on here lying about how you not only graduated, but have great jobs and wonderful careers.  Most of you are on welfare.

Social, educational and financial costs of teen pregnancy 

  • The United State spends $7 billion each year due to the costs of teen pregnancy. 
  • Only one-third of teenage mothers complete high school and receive their diplomas 
  • By age 30, only 1.5 percent of women who had pregnancies as a teenager have a college degree. 
  • 80 percent of unmarried teen mothers end up on welfare 
  • Within the first year of becoming teen mothers, one-half of unmarried teen mothers go on welfare.* 
  • The daughters of teen mothers are 22 percent more likely than their peers to become teen mothers. 
  • Sons of teenaged mothers have a 13 percent greater chance of ending up in prison as compared to their peers.

Quoting Anonymous:

Historically, nearly half of all teenage mothers receive welfare within five years of becoming parents (USGAO 1994).


Not only are your statistics 10 years out of date, but "nearly half" does not equate to most. youre disproving your own statement here...

Hmmm...i got pregnant at 17. Graduated college at 21, and make $32/hr.
I applied for medicaid when I was pregnant but was denied. So, nope, never been on welfare.
