Teen pregnancy is a catastrophe consequence that teenagers have make just because they do not belief true love waits. What I mean by true love waits is that they are living life like if there was a limit. They believe they are in love and they start living a sexual life ignoring pregnancy and adult responsibilities that will come after pregnancy. Such as the Low-income, the responsibility that they do not have, the mature thinking they need to have and the ways to prevent pregnancy.
I understand that all babies are a blessing and in all the dilemma of pregnancy, the only victim is the baby. However, the baby did not appear by itself and that it is exactly what teens do not accept, that they make the wrong decision. Teens know what they are doing and they clearly do not care about the effect. Teen pregnancy not only affects the young mother, but also the child. Simply because a young mother is more likely to have problems after labor, her body is still changing and growing. Their reproductive system do not have the capacity still to give birth and it can provoke infertility or serious problems in the future. In some cases their hormones are weaker, their hormones are changing from being a girl to a woman, which leads to more issues once the baby is born.
The infant may pay a large price by being raised by a child as well. Both of these would cause lifelong problems and even can cause their child to get pregnant at a young age to. The infant will need a good example and the help of both parents, but teenagers are mostly single parents, why? Because of the lack of responsibility they have. Later their children will follow the same role of their parent and they will end up pregnant, in jail or in dysfunctional relationships. I think they follow the same role because they lived with a single parent and they believe that is the right relationship or because their mother did it and once again, they think that is a good relationship.
A child is not a toy for a teenager to play with. A baby is not like a new dog or cat that they buy and when they get tired of they donated. A baby is a person that teens should be responsible for building into something wonderful. I have heard so many times teenagers say “it’s my life, my choice,” well once they have the child, their life is their child's life as well. The teen will start playing the role of an adult making decisions as an adult, and that is when the joy of being a teen disappears. That is when the child gets behind because the teenager would want to live their life as a teen and not as an adult.
Another affect can be that the child is more likely to grow up in a low-income family. Without a college education and a career, the teen is more likely to have a low-income. Few teens can financially support a child after its birth. First because they are teenagers that do not have the responsibility to work in a well-paying job. Second, they have to be in school and if they drop out of school,...
