Teenage pregnancy is an up growing wave in the United States in today’s society. Many teens today are pressured to have sex when they’re not ready. Teenage Pregnancy is one of the most distressing issues in our world today. Many teenagers engage in sexual intercourse unprotected with their partners every day. All women and men should have total control over if and when they can conceive a child, rather it’s a teen are an adult.
1 in 4 teens contract a sexually transmitted disease every year. When one catches a disease they usually don’t realize it, because they don’t get tested. When someone catches a disease and they have sexual intercourse it goes to that person and so on. Being a teen and getting pregnant causes a lot of health risks for the baby and the young woman. The New Charity Report states, “Girls under the age of 15 are 5 times more likely to die in pregnancy than women in their 20’s, and that babies born to younger mothers are also at a greater risk.” It also states, “ Worldwide, complications in pregnancy are the “number one killer” of girls and young women aged 15-19, the report says, adding to that 50,000 teenage girls and young women die during pregnancy and childbirth every year, in many cases because their bodies are not ready to bear children” (NP, World Health Organization).
In addition pro sex education has not made a meaningful case for comprehensive sex education. When challenged, these advocates just crank up their rhetoric: Criticize sex education, they say, and you contribute to the deaths of teenagers from AIDS. Furthermore, empirical data suggest that in 1970, five percent of fifteen-year-old girls and 32 percent of seventeen-year-old girls reported having had sex; by 1988 the figures had increased to 26 percent of fifteen-year-olds and 51 percent of seventeen-year-olds. By age nineteen nearly 80 percent of young women have had sexual intercourse.Craven (2008) pointed out the real dangers of teen sexual activity and the influence that comprehensive sex education plays in producing these
Besides that, baby dumping issue is threatening moral values among publics especially among teenagers. Teenagers’ pregnancy is the main factor which causes the increased in baby dumping issues. The mother of the baby which often commit baby dumping crime are those who socially isolated and do not have a proper sex education (Nazni Noordin, 2012). Some parents are embarrassed to talk about sex education in front of their children. As a result, teenagers do not have the knowledge on what will happen if they perform unprotected sex.
Some individual behaviors of secondary school girls are responsible for pregnancy. These include early sexual involvement (Musonga, 2014) that results in multiple and concurrent partnerships (Muganda-Onyando and Omondi, 2008) with boys and men that may be transactional in nature due to poverty. Poverty at home affects individual attributes of some girls in that it may force girls‟ into survival sex for subsistence (FAWE Uganda, 2011); and for economic security girls can engage in multiple relations. Multiplicity of sexual relations reduces the chances that teenagers would use contraceptives to prevent pregnancies hence escalating the problem (Willan,
Some viewers may not know anything about teen pregnancy other than what they see on television without even experiencing it or been properly informed on the topic. Not all teen moms deserve the bad wrap we get and I say “we” because I am a teen mom myself. As of 2011, the rate was fifty-four pregnancies per one thousand girls from the ages 15 to 19. Thirty percent of teenage girls who drop out say pregnancy and parenthood are a key reason. When you see teen mothers on television they are usually portrayed as high school drop outs.
Healthcare is a huge issue for women across the country, as maternal mortality and infant mortality rates are some of the highest in the world. These women are not even allowed to make their own healthcare decisions and instead their husbands or other male family members somehow have the right to choose for them, which is simply ridiculous. In addition, less than 5% of women have access to and use contraceptives, which is a big problem primarily because women often end up with more children than she can provide for resulting in malnutrition and deeper poverty. Especially because AIDS is so widespread in the DRC, contraceptives are crucial when it comes to women’s health. Violence against women is perhaps the worst hardship a Congolese women will face.
Among young adult women age 20 to 24, 43 percent are already mothers and 4 percent are pregnant with their first child. Early pregnancy and motherhood varies by education, wealth quintile, and region. It is more common among young adult women age 15 to 24 with less education than among those with higher education. Teenage pregnancy may lead to Abortion because they are not prepared in facing the consequences that will come along the way. Most likely the father of the unborn is not ready to face the such consequences.
