Transcript of TEEN PREGNANCY
CONFLICTS / SACRIFICES
Fathers Parental Rights
There are approximately 13% of women who become pregnant each year who are without health insurance, often resulting in inadequate prenatal care.
Planned parent hood gives women everything for free. Such as birth control, emergency contraception, and some medical exams.
Fathers of unborn children have few legal rights when it comes to their child. While some states grant some rights in a specific number of circumstances, typically all the rights go to the mother.
Additionally, fathers have no legal rights as to whether the mother aborts the child or not. The only right they have in the abortion process is talking to the mother about the process.

The vast majority (8 in 10) of all pregnancies among adolescents are either unplanned or occurred before the adolescents were ready to be parents.
In 2009, 46 percent of high school students reported ever having had sexual intercourse.
In order to avoid unplanned pregnancies, it is essential for adolescents who are sexually active to use effective contraceptives (such as condoms, birth control pills, the patch, the vaginal ring, the IUD, and injectable birth control methods) and to use them every time they have sex.
