“Teenage pregnancy has serious consequences for the mother, the child and society in general. Teenage pregnancy frequently leads to limited future prospects for many teen mothers who are unable to complete high school. Adolescents who have babies are also more prone to health problems and experience a maternal death rate 2.5 times higher than women aged 20-24. Many children born to teenage mothers suffer from low birth weight and other related health problems, with a large proportion of them having insufficient health insurance. Children of teen parents often receive inadequate care because teens are rarely able to provide the nurturing and stimulation required by infants for normal development.” is an excerpt from this article. So I am not plagiarizing, I will post a link to the article but most of you, if not all won’t be able to access it unless you are registered. At Issue: Teen Pregnancy
Yeah some of this may be correct for some people but how do you know it was the cause of the mother having a baby young and not just because her body can’t have kids or carry them right? My daughter NEVER missed a doctors appointment and has never missed a vaccination. My daughter has a speech problem that she inherited from her father and she gets help for that because I want my daughter to thrive like me. I am not going to hold back on her care because I am young and stupid and had a kid at such a young age. To me this just makes me angry. To you, you may see some good in it but unless you have gone through a pregnancy at a young age, you have no room to talk .
