Teen pregnancies: We are failing to protect our teenagers


According to the study, women with unplanned pregnancies were 2.3 times more likely to experience PPD compared with those who had planned pregnancies. While there are families who would care for pregnant girl family members, not many are kind and supportive. Young girls who are unmarried and pregnant are often shunned, discriminated against and even disowned by their families and communities. In fact, we continue to expect that unintended teenage pregnancies and baby dumping can be resolved by moral policing and abstinence-based education. Many also think that sex is not a topic to be discussed by children, and we can protect them by not discussing it.
