* There are now about 750,000 teen pregnancies annually (among those aged 15-19), down from just over 1 million in 1990. (Guttmacher Institute, 2006)
* It is estimated that approximately 1/3 of pregnant teens have abortions, 14% have miscarriages and 52% give birth.
* About 72% of teens who give birth are not married.
* About 75% of teens who give birth are first-time mothers.
* Over 175,000 of the teens who give birth each year are under the age of 18.
* 80% of young teenage moms end up in poverty and on welfare.
* The sons of young teenage moms are 2.7 times more likely to end up in prison than sons born to girls who did not bear children until they were at least 20.
* If teenage girls delayed childbearing until after the age of 21, the rate and costs would be reduced even further. In addition, if less of these young men are incarcerated, then they are able to better contribute to the support of their own children.
* A study in Illinois found that children of teenage mothers are twice as likely to be abused and neglected than are children of 20 or 21 year old mothers. It is estimated that as many as 5% of foster-care placements would not be needed if teenage childbearing were eliminated.

hi i'm 16 and found out about two weeks ago that I am pregnant. I am just over eight weeks, and scared. I considered abortion but dont think i can go through with it , neeed help!! dont know what to do. 

Name: Mammy2bee | Date: Jun 16th, 2009 12:24 AM
are u with the babies father?

I am also 16 and i am eight weeks pregnant. The father of the baby is no longer with me and is in another relationship, so he is not being supportive, but my family and his family are. if you dont want an abortion and you have the support of your family than go through with it, your friends will come around, so if you think that you can cope with being a mother so young, than dont be pressured inot abortion.

do u want to keep the baby? if so i think u should. yes children should have a father figure but his childishness should not stop u from bringing a life into this world.

ok, well he already has a one year old, he said he wll be a father to it but I am still concderned that he will not be, he has told me he wants a paternity test, which is fine cause it cant be anyone elses, but he has been contacting me to see how my appointments have been and stuff, is the father of your baby in the picture?

hi. im 15 and i i think i may be pregnant, but im not for sure yet. i just dont know how to deal with it if i am. im afraid to tell me boyfriend because a few months ago i had a miscarriage. im not sure if i should tell him or just wait. 

Name: katiee | Date: Jun 16th, 2009 1:35 AM
the best thing to do is do a test before you tell anyone, making sure your 100 percent pregnant is important than go from there, how far along do u think you are?

Katie I want to praise you for choosing life for your child! Regardless of whether or not your boyfriend stays in the picture, make this child your first priority. My husband and I are the adoptive parents of a beautiful biracial boy whose birth mother found herself in a very similar position. She was also encouraged to get an abortion, and her boyfriend left her once he found out she was pregnant. Financially she could not afford to raise him and decided that adoption was her best option. God bless her for making this decision, as our little boy is the bright spot in our lives! I would encourage you to consider this as an option should you not be able to care for this child. Good luck to you.
