This might help girls see the difference between the two lifestyles of being a free teenager and being a teen mom BEFORE they make the mistake of having sex and possibly ending up pregnant.

If anyone can think of more benefits of lifestyle #1 or negatives of lifestyle #2, please go ahead and add them.

LIFESTYLE #1 - LIFE AS A FREE TEENAGER:
- Keeping up grades, studying, doing homework
- Participating in after-school activities
- Going to school dances and parties
- Relaxing during summer vacation
- Having fun at the junior or senior prom
- Graduating high school and attending after-graduation parties
- Moving on to college or vocational school with no restrictions

LIFSTYLE #2 - LIFE AS A TEEN MOM:
- Missing school, falling behind in classes
- Getting up two or three times at night to feed a baby
- Endless diaper changes, including stinky ones
- Losing friends who don't want to be around crying babies
- Staying home with a crying baby while friends are out having fun
- Missing high school graduation, or even having to drop out of school
- Losing out on the dream job/career originally planned


As a teenager who is happily NOT pregnant, which lifestyle do YOU want? Wouldn't you rather have the first lifestyle instead of the second?

You can keep Lifestyle #1 very easily, just by saying NO to any guy who pressures you to have sex. If your boyfriend says he'll break up with you if you won't have sex with him, don't cave in. Break up with HIM instead.

Keeping your freedom to BE a teenager; there's no better reason to say NO to sex.

While teens will make their own decisions regarding sex, they need to know one important fact. Chiefly, if some teen girls risk the possibility of pregnancy by having sex and end up pregnant as a result, these girls will LOSE the freedom they have now and won't get it back for a very long time.

Being pregnant and then having a baby imposes a huge amount of restrictions on a girl's freedom that she simply DIDN'T have when she wasn't pregnant. If a girl gets pregnant and decides to raise a baby as a teen mom, just about all her freedom will be GONE, for the next six years at least. If she is still in high school, her ability to concentrate on homework and studying for tests will be severely affected, especially if her baby is sick or colicky. Her freedom to just "hang out" with her friends will also be gone, and if she wants to go out, she may have to take the baby with her.

By contrast, a girl who enjoys the benefits of being sexFREE (meaning free FROM sex, aka "abstinent") will be free to do everything she needs to as a high school student, and free to have fun outside school as well. She DOESN'T have to worry about paying for diapers and formula. She DOESN'T have to watch or hear about her friends having fun without her. She DOESN'T have to miss out on things like prom, graduation, college, and her dream career. She doesn't have to miss out on anything because she DIDN'T have sex and therefore she didn't get pregnant.

Given the choice between being sexFREE (again, that means free FROM sex) and being pregnant, I'd say the decision for any teen girl is an easy one. It certainly was an easy one for ME when I was a teenager. I enjoyed all the benefits of being sexFREE, which meant keeping all my freedom to be a normal, carefree teenager too.

Thank you

At least you're addressing prevention instead of abortion, abortion, abortion.

Anything that can be done to prevent unwanted pregnancies is better than doing nothing.

Your approach is greatly appreciated and thank you again.

It breaks my heart to see young children with their entire life before them make a mistake and wonder for the rest of their life, "what if".

As older adults we all should be telling kids, no, no, not yet, no, no, wait a while. As adults we sbould address the cause and after the fact is too late.

It is a womans body and it is a woman that have to suffer through an abortion. I would prefer for them to say no sex, no risk, no way than to suffer emotionally and physically after an abortipn

No, they aren't ho's; they are women who have sexual urges and needs like men do. The biggest lie in the world is that sex = lack of self-respect.

You aren't better than anyone else; your morality is no better than anyone else's.

I'm not advocating mindless schtupping; I advocate teaching kids real sex ed so they can avoid pregnancy and disease. After that, they can and will make their own decisions without consulting you.

If I can get AA children to say NO! No, I have a future and I'm not ready for sex.
If I can get young AA boys to respect themselves and say no, I respect myself and K respect my girl friend.
If I can get young AA girls to respect themselves and say no, I resoect myself and I respect my boyfriend.
I'll be happy.
SO FK YOU AND YOUR IMMORAL AZZ THAT ONLY WANT TO ADDRESS THE RESULTS AND IGNORE THE CAUSE.

I don't know aout the moby part, but you are definitely a dick.

I have every right to call out your primitive concept of morality. Whether or not you like it means exactly zero; I cannot even count all the f**ks I don't give about your outrage.

AAW are just like everyone else; they have their own individual standards. YOU don't respect them because you think they need your guidance. They will make their own decisions, even about abortion, whether you appove or not.

Publicly funded abortions are a population control tool of the political elites. Eugenics for liberals.

a fetus is not a baby. we have viability laws to protect a fetus that can survive outside the womb at a particular stage of development.

people act like abortion was not a reality before roe-v-wade...women been seeking abortions since we have been getting pregnant it is a NATURAL reaction to not wanting to carry to term because of inconvenience of time or situation.

you will never make a woman have a baby if she absolutely does not want to no matter what you say, your silly samantics or laws you try to make.

i keep hearing from people that women can abort simply by using our minds and wills to terminate and unwanted pregnancy. i pray this is true for we must keep this part of our privacy in our full control.

So black women should have kids even if they can't afford them or don't want them? Sounds like you want to enslave them for your ideology.
<quoted text>
If they couldn't afford to feed themselves then obviously they'd think twice about having a child to begin with ... if abortion were illegal (as it should be).

They only enslave themselves by being incompetent and irresponsible; sleeping with any many before marriage. No one is forcing them to have babies when they cannot afford them.

Sounds like you want to keep the culture of IRRESPONSIBILITY, incompentence and MURDER of babies alive and well. You must be one sick and twisted individual.
