Teen PregnaciesMonday, April 02, 2012 By Desirae Espinoza
Teen Pregnancies People say that teen girls that are in school are less likely to get pregnant, and teen girls that are not that intrested in school are the ones to get pregnant, and to never graduate from high school. When teenagers have a child at a young age while in high school, the teen moms have a baby to take care of more than study, while a teen that is more focused on their school work, and are able to continue and graduate high school because they don’t have to support another life on top of theirs. Teen Moms That are expecting a baby are more worried about how they’re going to support the baby throughout the rest of his/her life. A mother that is going to have a baby will have to plan on how she will provide, how she will support the baby, how she will get the money to have for what she and the baby needs to survive. Teen moms also worry about if they’ll make it out of school and graduate. Teens that are not pregnant or have never been pregnant have time to get through high school and graduate, then after plan for college. Teens that don’t have any babies to take care of can do whatever they plan because they do not have another life at their sides. My opinion is, anyone can get pregnant. I do not believe it depends on if the teen is more involved in school or not. There are teen moms that had plans on staying in school before way before they got pregnant, not dropping out. Some teen moms actually fit school into their hard working schedule. Some teen moms do not have to drop out immediately and call her school work quits, because people think that “she’s having a baby? Wow, she’ll never be able graduate with so much work!” It’s not an encouragement to some of these teen moms that are trying real hard to stay in school.
