Teen Pregnancy

Abstinence now, or baby later?

In the USA about 820,000 teens become pregnant every year

79% of teens who get pregnant aren't married.
80% of teen pregnancy is unplanned.
Almost 25% of teens who have a teen pregnancy will have another birth within two years.

The USA spends $7 billion on teen pregnancies a year

Only 1/3 teenage mothers graduate high school and get their diplomas.
At age 30 only 1.5 percent of women who had teen pregnancies are college graduates.

If your life is already hard, then you shouldn't drag another life into it.

Tensions in a Relationship

More often than not, having a baby will put much more stress on you and your partner, whether it be to marry or just to take care of that baby.
