A lot of people think that teen pregnancy comes along with many other bad decisions such as drug use, abuse of the child, and becoming a high school drop out. The majority of the community also assumes that the parents will put the child up for adoption. What people don't know is that not all of these choices occur with every single teen parent. (Stereotypes of Teen Moms 1) They are faced with the stigma that because they are a teen parent, they are a bad parent. Some people don't accept that a young parent can be a good and responsible one. (Tired of Being Judged 1) "Adolescents rarely put their child up for adoption. More than 90% of adolescents who give birth choose to raise the infant themselves. Nationwide, 8% of infants born to unmarried adolescents aged 17 or younger are placed for adoption." (The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology 9) Most teen pregnancies happen around 18 or 19, already past high school age. This shows that not all teenage parents are dropouts. Another stereotype of teen mothers is that they are all going to end up single. Being single is not the case of all teen parent relationships. Actually, a lot of teens still continue their relationship and if not, they most likely will still contribute to the child. (Stereotypes of Teen Moms 1) A High school student named Gabriella, decided to test her fellow students by putting on a fake, padded belly to see how she would be treated. She quickly faced rumors and judgments about her in the hallways. Gabriella said that many of the students were saying that she was "that type of girl". Six months later, she showed everyone that it was a fake bump and they instantly felt guilty. Teen Parents are unfairly judged. They are "pittied, judged, and asked insensitive questions" according to author, Michelle Horton. Since people assume that teen pregnancy comes along with other bad decisions, it leads to them being categorized as irresponsible. (Horton 1) A high school student named Gabriella, decided to test her fellow classmates by putting on a fake, padded belly to see how she would be treated. She quickly faced rumors and judgments being made about her. Gabriella said that some students were even saying that she was "that type of girl". Six months later, she told everyone that she was used a fake bump and they felt guilty inside. How would you feel if you were judged every day for a mistake you made in the past?
