Teen pregnancy is nothing new. It's been around for a long time. Get enough of them together and maybe Mtv could slap together a few more episodes of Teen Mom.

Teen pregnancy has been decreasing over the years, not increasing. Best thing you can do is not get pregnant yourself and be a good influence for your community.

Nope, they did a school assembly, and I always ended up absent on the days, that something was going to happen on. My body literally just wanted to go into sick mode for some reason. I missed that assembly, the talent show, picture day (both picture, and retakes), and a few more things.

So u were anxious when u had assemblies ?

There isn't really much you can do anymore. If you tell someone to not do something, they are going to want to do it.

Try not having sex as a teenager. It has always worked. No virgin teenager has ever gotten pregnant.

un-true, a man was shot through hes testicles and into a woman's pelvis during the Civil War, she became pregenant but lost the baby.

u son of a gun... how did u know that??.. jp ^^
Report as
Ummm... IF that really happened..... I really dont think it did. How would the exploded sperm have landed so careful inside her uterus WITHOUT damaging her uterus?? She would have died too...esp since antibiotics were not invented yet. You do not have to believe EVERYTHING you read.... jeez
Report as
We were taught that in school, and you can go ahead and look it up in the 2012 Pierson 9th Grade History textbook. Should be online
Report as
What? You mean not everything on the Internet is true?!
Report as
yea its actually true. it has been in nat geo n the history channel
Report as
Again, How would sperm from an exploded testicle end up unscathed in a random uterus and not harm the woman? It does not make any sense. Your history book probably says that Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag too... There is no proof she did. Your history book is filled up with information that is completely incorrect. You will learn this later in life if you continue to read and learn.
Report as
dude its called a "miracle" which means, is impossible to happen n yet it occured. dnt question it. it happened. that's why there's the phrase "son of a gun"
Report as
LOLOL... Ok. Believe what you want.
Report as
It cant happen. Sorry.
Report as
the first american flag was made by Francis Hopkins???
Report as
There is no record of who made the first American Flag. Betsy Ross's family just took the credit for it... because she was a seamstress in the area at the time.
Report as
How old are you that you were taught that Betsy Ross made the first American flag? honestly, not trying to be mean.
Report as
it DID happen. saying can't wont make it untrue. its a miracle. can't believe it right? well, that's why there's a word for that..
Report as
Her grandson came out with proof that Hopkins did, and denied that Washington ever even spoke to B. Ross
Report as
To whom are you speaking Martin? We arent even talking about that. Read all the posts before you join a conversation... that way you will be up to speed on everything.
Report as
There is NO record of Hopkins having sewn it either. Zero proof.
Report as
How old are you, that they didn't teach you this stuff in school?
Report as
Hey haha.... It didnt happen. It is not possible. Oh... and neither of us was there so why are we arguing about it??
Report as
My age is not a factor... What IS a factor though is that I am out of school and still continue to read and learn on a regular basis. Always reading... always learning.
Report as
Well then you need to be reading from some books made after 1850...
Report as
Morgan... You and I werent in that time period either... We honestly dont know what happened.... we are reading stuff that someone put into a book.
Report as
Ummm... .the book I read are actually NEW. Current....Up to date. and NO WHERE is there ANY proof of who sewed the first American Flag. It was never documented anywhere.
See..... I read.

Ok, you just said we wer'nt there, so leave it go... we both have our opinions, why couldn't you leave it at that

These are not opinions we are discussing. Opinions are our own perceptions or ideas. We are discussing TWO different things that we read. You read one thing. I read another..... Not opinions.

Or is it possible this woman who was also shot could possibly have been pregnancy already? She could have claimed to be a virgin but who really knows.

You see so many questions on here because girls can ask and keep a sense of anonymity. The teen pregnancy rate has actually gone down.

I know a lot of people (16-19) that had children, but wanted children. Some made good parents, others lost their baby to protective services. I feel, it depends on the person.

Just don't do anything stupid and help your friends not to do anything stupid. That usually works because all of them have friends who have friends who have more friends etc.

Is it right for them to get pregnant? What's wrong that they can and want to get pregnant but our society won't allow them? Who is right and who is wrong in this case? Do you think our society has to be right and the teenagers have to be wrong?

At the age of 13, we have already been able to read almost everything which is necessary in our life, and it should not be a big problem to start to work in our society if our work environment is properly managed.

If the restriction of our age to get married or go to work in our society is cancelled, and we can go to work or get married at the age we can work or at the age we can give birth to children, people could be more serious to this issue if abortion is forbidden according to law.

I think we are able to learn everything at any age in our life. A lot of people complain that they are not able to learn quickly after they grow older, but I do think it is because they feel bad everyday after they grow up. Even we are at very young age and if we can't feel good everyday, we are also not able to learn quickly.

I do think practise is the best way to get knowledge in our life.

Will our society change for our teenagers?

Very interesting response. Don't know what else to say to that other than, if I got a 13 year old pregnant, I definitely will be unable to provide child support due to the fact that I'll have spent a significant time in jail, then once out on parole, hardly any job being available to me, due to that fact, and once I have "sex offender" status attached to my name? Fuhgettabout it. There is a good chance I will not be able to live in the same neighborhood, or if so, definitely not in peace. Even if my little "Lolita" waits for my release from prison, there is a very good chance that I will have fallen madly in love with my "cellie" or him with me. Or perhaps her daddy (NOT "sugar daddy") has seen to it that my genitals have been altered or removed so as to prevent any more intimate relations with her even though she would now be of legal age.
Report as
13 year old is still too early. I would recommend that after the person could live on himself/herself independently.

I don't think any animal could allow any opposite gender to make love when they still rely on their parents for a living.

Maybe our law and our way to know the world has gone wrong, and we can rarely live on ourselves till 18 years old when we have already been mature physicially.

In my answer to this question, I meant that if our society (law) will change for our teenagers.
Report as
If we are more advanced than animals, we should be happier. I do think all animals are happy unless enemies come to eat them or kill them or there are not enough to eat or drink.

On a serious note, I don't know. Sometimes I speculate that if medical and other technology increases to the point where we can easily live to 200+ years of age, then the age of consent might actually have to be UPPED to perhaps way over 21! If and when that happens though, I have a hunch our Brave New World will have a lot more to deal with than just age of consent.
Report as
i doubt if we can really live that long. we live in a world a unhappy persons.

it is said that only in China we have 100,000,000 people who have been diagnosed schizophrenia, and there are 1/10 people who have been diagnosed schizophrenia in our world.

maybe not many people would feel happy under such circumstance unless this kind of problems can be solved.

To AnnieZhu: There are some "futurists" and other "experts" that have said that even IMMORTALITY might not be too far fetched an idea. (Except for possible extreme trauma to a body I would imagine--Like a fire burning a body beyond all recognition even as a body) I have read some mind bending stuff on this. I myself will probably not live to see these "miracles" and I will admit that the idea of living even a 1000 years is a little spooky. This is the stuff of science fiction and extreme philosophy.

What I don't get is every day these people are asking "could I be pregnant?" They describe how they had unprotected sex and yet they still ask! Of course you could be, you told how you did it without protection, DUH! I know most schools have sex-Ed by like 6th grade and yet these damn kids still act like they didnt know. What else can you do to explain this to them?

no one could fully accept anything unless they touched the facts. education is only the first step for us to start to know something, should it takes us more than 20 years before we can step into our society?

besides, everybody was blamed to be "slow", "not able to listen", "not smart" and so on, because they are not able to follow the instructions at once.

could anyone question if they really should be blamed or is it true that nobody could just follow the instructions at once? :p
Report as
I don't know, I do know that for instance on here, if you can figure out how to create an account on ask or any other similar app or site then you can surely figure out that if you're gonna have sex that you use protection or risk getting pregnant or an std. Putting on a condom is not rocket science, or wait how about if you're just not sure about sex or contraception then don't do it!
Report as
i just feel that when we were young, we can neither follow adults' ideas or instructions nor follow our own ideas.

the older generation might have forced the younger generation too much by teaching, and the generation can't have enough chances to do something and get to know something in person.
Report as
I understand, I know as a kid my dad told me briefly about sex at age 10, it was very confusing then lol! But the rest I figured out an it wasn't that hard. These days I agree parents and schools are more in depth and we have more teen pregnancies than ever. You'd think it would be the opposite.
Report as
maybe it will help if we can be more independent in our life from childhood. we could learn to judge if something is good for us independently earlier.

my another question here is about "We can't be employed or be adults or get married at a certain age according to law. Do you think it is good enough for us?"

i think it is best that we can earn money as earlier as we can, it should work if our government is able to control the enterprise operation information.
