I myself was a pregnant teen. 16 and TWINS!!!! Most of the time a teen is unable to care for a child on their own at this age, without any assistance from their own parents. So logically the best thing for the baby is to give them parents who are able to take of them...in a way that is appropriate. Some people just see it as, the teen's parents weren't being good parents because the girl got pregnant, the girl is trashy because she didn't live "ladylike" is a nice way of putting it, the boy is just careless and boys will be boys. Do you see where I'm going with this?
Standing back and looking at this in a point of view of a parent not wanting my child to have to go through what I did, it makes a lot of sense. Some people cannot have children and there is nothing wrong with putting a child up for adoption if it is going to better their life, being negative about it doesn't help matters at all. It does, however, give all of those who are being that way something to talk about. When a mother Turns her child away for being pregnant, 9 times out of 10 it is because she is either embarrassed or she is heartbroken and in shock.
There is no rhyme or reason to these things, just the natural reaction of human beings doing what society makes them think is the "for sure" way to treat people these days. I say you do what you feel in your heart is right. If you know you can raise that baby and it will be fed, warm, loved, and educated to the best of your abilities, (safely) YOU GO GIRL, YOU BE A MOM! Nothing in life is easy! technology is so advanced school can be done at home on a computer, and work too if you are strong willed enough to do it. Yea so statistics say this or that...many teen moms end up with a college degree, successful, and happily married with great lives. You just have to work extra hard. Keep doing what is right in your heart.
