    In all seriousness does this really classify as significant enough to get USN?

    1/3 Teen Moms needed a falcon punch.

    Someone that stupid should not be allowed to take care of another living being, when they clearly can't take care of themselves to begin with.

    Eh, thought it was interesting. Mods can move or remove it if they wish plus I don't remember there being guidelines on what the content of news stories should be, other than real stories of course. :P

    I seriously doubt that the results are accurate. They have been preaching the risk of pregnancy since third grade in the United States. I would imagine most teenage mothers are still kids, and have even more reason to act childish, which means likely they lied for the sake of not taking direct responsibility for their actions.

    They are preaching out of date methods. To give you an idea, what is taught in family life in the local district where I live is decided by a board of parents. The school holds a meeting and presents the material to the parents and then the parents vote on whether its added to the curriculum. Those parents are sticklers, btw.

    Personally I feel this illustrates the importance of providing sufficient sex education to young people.

    Nonsense, sexual education only promotes promiscuity. We should keep not teaching kids anything and then call them ignorant sluts.

    I'll move it to offtopic chat.
    I think it's more a subject to talk and debate than a news.
    It's not really new that early teens get pregnant.

    Unfortunately, I think the dad always leave and let the mom alone :(
    They don't take any responsibility of their acts.

    If they don't want to abort, they can always place the child in a family (adoption or temporary until they complete their school and become more mature).
    It's maybe not that easy to take the decision, there are a lot of facts involved (family, religion, country structures, etc.)

    I can believe that many of these women girls are ignorant of the risks, but a 3rd? Think again. While I don't think that sex ed in school is the greatest idea ever, I do believe they need to step up the public curriculum. And if parents have such a problem with it, why don't they take up the responsibility and teach their child all about the risks.

    I find it a misnomer to even call them women even when they are mothers.
    Even though I was an early bloomer, I sincerely disbelieve 99.99% of girls in the US have the life experience or sense of personal responsibility necessary to be thought of as an actual woman until age 23-25.

    So long as the mothers surveyed had a consensual conception, yeah, I am really not actually surprised by that high a percentage. See Willful Ignorance; Wishful Thinking
