    Factors That Lead To Teen Pregnancy Although the overall rate of teen pregnancy has been declining, the rates have remained high for teens that are most vulnerable.

    Teen Pregnancy Programs That Work Now Some 63% of teen parents depended on public programs for medical needs and daily living expenses in 1992. This includes needs for formula, food, heat, and transportation. In Ohio, the state, private organizations and federally funded programs together provide assistance to pregnant teens and teen mothers. The programs make sure that the girls are eating well, receive prenatal care, and get encouragement to stay in school to secure a future for themselves and their children. There are private organizations and communities that have tried to fill the gaps of these national programs. A program in the Covington, Kentucky school district offers an example tha ...

    Teen Pregnancy How to prevent teen pregnancy has been a question for many years now. Statistics have been running wild trying to keep up with the teenage generation. Many people have their opinions on the subject (teen pregnancy), because teens seem to be getting pregnant all so fast these days. People fail to realize that having a baby is supposed to be a sort of privilege. Many people take having a baby as a joke. Getting pregnant and having a child involves many pros/cons. For example having a child can be harder on some people than it is on others. When having a baby there are a lot of things to worry about, for the most important part financial problems seem to be the most talked about ...

  • The Effects Of Teen Pregnancy On Children - 1,463 words
    The Effects of Teen Pregnancy on Children The Effects of Teen Pregnancy on Children Children from homes run by teenage mothers have to face almost insurmountable obstacles in life. The incidents of depression and mental health problems, the lack of father figures, and the high rate of poverty often connected to children in homes run by teenage mothers put them at serious disadvantages when compared to children raised in nuclear families. Many people believe that the implementation of sex education in schools and the addition of more federal aid for single parents are major causes for the country's high rate of teen pregnancies. When the true purpose of sex education and federal aid is to hel ...

  • Advice To The President - 527 words
    Advice To The President Advice to the President Mr. President, the moral decline in our country has plummeted since you have been in office. I would like to think that you had no part in this, but I believe that you play a very large role in this issue. First of all, you legalized third-term abortions. You tell us not to kill in the streets, but yet you will stab an infant in the neck without him being able to defend for himself. Secondly, you took the Bible out of schools. In the United States, there is to be no religious persecution. So you just abandon religion? I do not think that solves any problems, in fact, I think it causes more. Since you have taken the Bible out of schools, look at ...

  • Birth Control - 337 words
    Birth Control There are numerous reasons that can explain why some people are against birth control. Some think that society will degrade because people will now have sexual intercourse more often without having to worry about pregnancy. There are also minor to major side effects with some birth control devices, for instance an intrauterine device (I.U.D.) might puncture the wall of a uterus. Birth control can also never be a sure thing and there is still always a chance with pregnancy. Also, some parents who dont want their children involved in sexual intercourse until an age which they think is appropriate will be very disappointed if their children disobey them and that might happen more ...

  • Birth Control Education - 2,076 words
    Birth Control Education Birth Control Education The issue of birth control being taught and/or distributed in public schools is one worth debating. In biology and health classes students are educated in reproduction and sexuality, but not about such birth control methods such as condoms and birth control pills. While parents may touch briefly on the topic, some feel too embarrassed to discuss it with their children or deem it unnecessary. This is a very bad course of action because the world is now teaming with hormonally driven teenagers lacking vital information about personal safety. They have a longing to practice the oldest instinct that humans possess, which is to procreate. The school ...

    ... who have to tell parents that their child is pregnant or will die from the AIDS virus. This is by far not a job that they enjoy doing. They want desperately for the AIDS epidemic to be terminated, and to stop seeing so many children diagnosed with a STD and become impregnated. Like the parents, they too are taxpayers and voters, but they have one more ball in their court. They are experts in this field, and have the ability to alter peoples views by simply telling them what they see every day. These are the people the school board will call and ask the opinion of while trying to decide an appropriate course of action. Unhappily this is a minor issue to doctors, whom are faced with cance ...

Combining many of the aspects of IMPROVISATION with some of the techniques associated with J.L.

  • Canadian National Unity - 1,822 words
    Canadian National Unity Canadian National Unity has been a serious debate to all Canadians for close to three decades now. Starting with French President Charles DeGaulle, who in visiting Quebec told a large crowd in Motreal, Vivre le Quebec libre! or, Live in a free Quebec. This one event started the whole modern separtist movement in Canada, and brought us to where we are now. They went from one person with an idea then, to 2 provincial parties, and a federal one as well, now. This is a very serious issue, that could end up in the destuction of an amazing country. Its not like theyre bluffing, weve had two Referendums on this issue (one almost resulting in a Yes vote), and numerous Constit ...

  • Condom Distribution Vs Abstinence In Schools - 1,824 words
    Condom Distribution Vs. Abstinence In Schools CONDOM DISTRIBUTION VS. ABSTINENCE IN SCHOOLS Sexual Education was introduced to the American Public School System in 1913, at the beginning of this century. Superintendent of Schools, Ella Flagg Young promoted the teaching of sex education, and implemented sex hygiene lectures in the Chicago, IL, school system. The goal then was to reduce social problems such as venereal disease and prostitution by educating the public about sex. Now, in the last year of the 20th century, goals are different, but the conflicting opinions on sexual education are still going strong. Health promotion goals for teenagers include postponement of sexual activity until ...

Data collected in 1991 and 1993 suggests that the presence of the condom availability plan did not increase the rates of sexual activity among students, although it may have contributed to safer sex. Schools without the program had a two-percent increase of students who had sex in the previous four weeks. Schools with the condom availability plan had a three- percent drop of students who have had sex in the previous four weeks. This is believed to be a result of the information provided by the school about sex and harmful effects it can ...

    During a recent survey conducted at Florida Atlantic University, seven students were interviewed regarding their knowledge and beliefs in safe sex practices and teen pregnancy. When asked what they thought of teen pregnancy, all of the respondees were very similar to each other. Dianne Mendez stated that, "Teens are having sexual intercourse from the ages of thirteen through sixteen, and that probably one out of three get pregnant."
