11 Interesting, and surprising facts about teenage pregnancy. All of these facts apply to the USA, but it is compelling to see how many teens become pregnant, and what they can easily do to prevent it. These facts should be read by teens from Australia also, as this could wake us up to the facts globally, and can give us reasons to prevent it in our countries.

Ashleigh's insight: This blog is here to help parents of pregnant teenage girls and give some guidance not only to the parents but to the teen as well. This blog is targeted to the younger audience who have either made the wrong choice in getting pregnant or who have accidentally gotten pregnant. This is a guide to help find the best direction as to adoption, helping a pregnant friend, telling the parents, finding a place to go and just finding out what to do. The author of this blog wanted everyone to feel welcome and have a sense that everything will be okay. Most pregnancies come from girls at the age of 15 to 19. about seventy-seven percent of pregnancies were unplanned. Most girls think about abortion before they ever consider adoption. The author of the blog hopes to help push girls more to adoption in order to give their child a good life.

Thoughts of a Mother: The "Glam" on Teen Pregnancy

Thoughts of a Mother: The "Glam" on Teen Pregnancy | Teenage Pregnancy | Scoop.it

"The very purpose of Mtv's 'Teen Mom' was to enlighten girls to the reality of becoming a teenage mother....They are instead using this platform as their 15 minutes of fame when what they should be doing is conveying the importance of safe sex, education first, then family."

 

A powerful, tour-de-force epic from a former teen mother. This article, while compasionate, cuts right to the chase with the cold, hard truth of what teen pregnancy is really like. A must-read for any teen guy or girl, pregnant/parenting or not, sexually active or not. It's just that good.

Tessa Fergusson's curator insight, May 16, 2013 7:51 AM

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.

Nicholas Kyriakoudes's curator insight, November 13, 2014 7:20 PM

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.
