I'm going to hold back my response to "teen pregnancy" since it is a topic very personal to me. If you've done any math since we began talking, you may have realized that I am a VERY young grandmother and it has everything to do with teen pregnancy.*We cry about "teenage pregnancy". Why do we think it happens? Societal change is the answer. God designed us for reasons. Sexual urges are strong. Why do we hit puberty at around 12-13? Even as late as 100 years ago "young marriage" wasn't uncommon. Today-you have to wait until after high school (18); wait after college (22-26,27); get settled into a career (mid-thirties or later).
We have strong sexual desires young; society basically forces people either to-put off those desires for success; or to commit fornication and try to prevent pregnancy for years while doing such fornication.
If two high school students today considered marriage, we'd jump to the ceiling!
This is an important topic to me and so, when I collect my thoughts about it, I think I will start a new discussion concerning this topic especially.
If you want to pre-judge me: consider that my family is passionate about opposing abortion. We have sinned in many ways, but killing people was not one.
