Unintended Pregnancies Teenage Mothers
1,086 wordsTeenage pregnancy and out-of-wedlock childbearing were central issues in the debate over welfare reform. They are frequently seen as both the cause of increased welfare costs and caseloads over the last 25 years, and the result of the welfare system itself.

Planned Parenthood Federation Parental Consent
1,700 words1 Research Paper ENG 232 /Dr. Powers 27 Mar 99 It is ironic that, while a teenage girl must obtain parental consent for such a minor procedure as having her ears pierced, for her to lay her life on the line (as well as that of her unborn child) and obtain an abortion, no parental notification is required.

To Teach Abstinence Or Contraception
1,615 wordsThe act of abstinence is taught by many teachers in American high schools nowadays as the correct and only way to educate teenagers on pre-marital sex, but does this education method actually benefit students or is it sending them a bad message? To me, I believe that schools, which are teaching abstinence as the only way to approach pre-marital sex send the wrong message to teenagers because contraception is also a vital part of the education because not everybody will want to take part in absti...

Many people opposed to sex education in the classroom claim that it is, in fact, the culprit, not the cure (Richert 55) and that schools ...

955 wordsSexual attitudes and the Changing Times Sexual attitudes have changed in the last 50 years, not so much sexual behavior but societies attitude towards it.
