I believe they should only be used in certain situations and should not be used all the time. The situations I don’t think they should be used in are for young women to get them. According to one source half the percentage of women getting an abortion done is below twenty-five. This is most likely due to a young woman or teenager not being careful with sex and then getting an abortion because they are not married and unable to take care of a baby. I believe, however, that if a girl is ready to have sex at a young age that she should have to face the consequences of getting pregnant if it happens.
The difference being that they did not have a child to want to smother as many women who end up with postpartum depression do. During my research, I learned that for women who decide that they are not going to keep their child sometime during their pregnancy, open adoptions are better for all of the people involved. It allows closure to the birth mom so that they are not constantly wondering what is going on with the child they birthed. It is also healthy for the adoptive family because it helps them not worry about what happened to the birth mother as well as a way for them to get information on any family genetics that may have them worried. I also discovered that surrogate mothers –women who choose to give birth to a child for another couple– normally do not have any negative emotions after giving birth.
Teens and the outcome based on the laws on minors and abortion If you had a teenage daughter, how would you feel if she came home and said she was pregnant? Many teens fear to bring home a bad report card, getting in trouble at school, or even bringing home the boyfriend. Although, these are reasonable fears, the fear of telling your parents you’re pregnant at 13 is greater. Often the answer to teenage pregnancy is abortion, or illegal abortion. In many states, abortion is difficult to receive without parental consent.
Struggles of Being a Teen Mom Being a parent at any age is a difficult task, but being a teen mother while still being considered a baby yourself is one of the most difficult things a person will ever do. Many people say that when young teens have a baby is that they are “babies having babies” because they themselves are still a child. Not only is it difficult to be a teen parent, but most teen parents end up being single parents. For many teenage girls, the day they tell their loved ones, such as their parents and boyfriend or father of the child, that they are pregnant can be a scary thing because they do not know for sure if they will remain in the picture and help her. Also, the father of the child may not stick around because he too is scared of the responsibility of raising a child, and his whole life is going to change if he decides to stay around.
In rape cases women who decide to go through the pregnancy suffer severe psychological and emotional disturbances towards themselves and the child. Adoption is sometimes the safer choice for the woman who may not be able to survive a

Imagine your daughter coming home and telling you that she was pregnant. Now imagine that she states that she was too scared to ask you for birth control and that if she had it she would have used it and would not be pregnant now. I believe teenage girls should have access to birth control pills because teenage girls should be allowed to take responsibility for their own fertility and make sure they do not get pregnant. Also, it is cheaper for the government to pay for confidential birth control for teenage girls than to pay for millions of unwanted babies or abortions. Teenage girls should have access to birth control pills because it’s their own fertility and whether or not parents agree, teenage girls are going to have sex without their
In one case, the Pro Life America group argued that the decision lies with woman to make based on her own feelings. They also stated that free birth control gives a woman personal choice on their own body and places them in charge. They then contradict themselves by further stating that free contraceptive coverage will allow women to assume a higher risk in sexual relationships. Basically, they state that it will reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, but not reduce the number of women becoming sexually active. The Pro Choice group feels that, like Pro Life, the choice should belong to the woman.
Maybe an abortion is the best choice for her. In a way, I believe that she is saving a child from entering a world where it would be neglected and not loved.I also have a very strong opinion on abortion and teenage pregnancy. The rate of teenage pregnancy in the United States is at an all time high. More and more girls are getting pregnant and are instantly thrown into a difficult situation. I don't believe that any teenager is fit to be a mother.
Nearly 400,000 teens (15-19 years old) give birth each year in the United States. 45.3% of these pregnancies occurred while using "highly effective" contraceptives. The STD rates seem to blossom each year, even with the use of condoms. Physical issues such as these, and emotional tolls due to sexual intercourse can be avoided with one simple step: Abstinence. Choosing to save yourself for marriage is the only 100% effective way to avoid pregnancy, STDs, and emotional distress due to sex.
