The 16 and Pregnant & Teen Mom Controversy - Glamorizing Teen Pregnancy?
Are these shows glamorizing teen pregnancy?
Some say that showing the stories of the pregnant teens and the teen moms glamorizes teen pregnancy, and statistics do reveal that more teenagers have been getting pregnant since 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom have aired.
Even though the show demonstrates the difficulty of teen pregnancy and being a teen mom, some think teens will still think that getting pregnant is "the thing to do" because the girls on TV are doing it and making it.
What are your thoughts on these shows about teens having babies?
