The Battle with Depression
Teens are known to be moody. Some more than others, but being sad for a long time is no joke. Major depression is a treatable illness that affects the way a person thinks, feels, behaves, and functions. Many parents and teens themselves don't think much of it because they believe its just hormones, but that is where they are wrong. Depression is a serious cause that should be dealt with and not avoided.

The law also bans abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy and beginning in October 2014 requires doctors to perform all abortions in surgical facilities. District Judge Lee Yeakel wrote that the regulations violated the rights of abortion doctors to do what they think is best for their patients and would unreasonably restrict a woman's access to abortion clinics.

Teenage girls have pursued extravagant weight loss, eventually harming their
health, in order to obtain one. To them, thigh gaps represent the ideal body image.

desire thigh gaps not for boys' attention but for popularity and self-satisfaction.
