The article suggest that there should be a better sex education in school as teen pregnancy as increased a bit over the years. Studies have shown that most teens are having unprotected sex, which can lead to becoming pregnant. The idea is to get information out to all teens in all area's, not just in some places.

This article form the Sydney Morning Herald refers to the growing concern from the general public for teenage pregnancy and how the average age for pregnancy in Australia {and NZ} is dropping. This change is being referred to as a ''teenage baby boom''. But many people in the public in particular teenagers aren't alarmed by 14,15, or 16 year old children having babies. The public now see it as the ''norm'' theres nothing unusually with it. This is a worry as many of these views and opinions have been carved by the experiences and un knowingness of these people. The article is ultimately stating facts and pushing for more education campaigns and programs to open the roof on this issue and real the true facts and effects peoples lives. Pregnancy doesn't just effect on person it effects many people either legally, professionally, social, mentally, physically, it just effects a whole person in every aspect. I do truly believe with this article and i believe the article should be playing a more active role in education teenagers so that this pregnancy rate can drop and with it the problems that occur.

Claire Rogers's curator insight, November 25, 2014 10:00 PM

This article tells us about how teenagers are getting pregnant and not wanting the baby so they kill it before it is able to see the world. This is called abortion. Abortion used to be just something people would do not often but now it has reached record heights and its still rising. Abortion should be Illegal and it is is some places of the world. If a teenager falls pregnant they should NOT kill the baby but they should either keep it and take the responsibility for their stupid actions or give the baby to a family who will love them and raise them up in the right way. Like an orphanage so someone can adopt them.
