Why is it that 16 years old think that getting pregnant is a good idea? I understand that whatever you do in life has a consequence and nothing goes unpunished. For instance when you have unprotected sex with your boyfriend Steve as a virgin you feel so magical and never want that night to end and it seems that for some reason the next few weeks you are still having that magical night. It’s been two weeks and your period has not come, you are so scared and you do not know what to do. You think what am I going to do aha I will talk to Steve.
You meet him and say babe I think I am pregnant and in your mind you are hoping he is okay with that. When you tell him that your period has failed to come and wait for his reaction, just to find out he is not excited. You then become overwhelmed and start to fret because you are 16 and pregnant and have no idea what to do next. What do you do? You can go home and tell mom but you are so scared of her reaction that you just want to wait but somewhere in the back of your mind you know that if she finds out later she will be more upset than before.
So you go home and tell her, and she is somewhat upset but very informative of your options, and lets you know that if you decide to keep your baby then you have to man up and take responsibility for your actions. Later when your dad returns from work he has been made aware of the current situation and wants to talk to you about your options. He also wants you to know that he is very upset with you but knows that he cannot stress you out and begins to let you speak about what you think. Well having a child while you yourself are a child it can be very dangerous and not a responsible move.
When you enter school and meet the love of your life and he is your all you might even be a popular cheerleader and your boyfriend might be a popular jock so that alone brings enormous peer pressure, and when your boyfriend talks you into taking it to the next level be careful because 9 times out of 10 you will end up pregnant and that’s when your life is changed forever. Its nine months later and you’ve had an okay time but now responsibility kicks in and you have no more freedom because every moment that you are awake you’re spending it taking care of your baby and going to school.
Your life has taken a turn for the worse you are not able to go to parties, hang after school, no more cheerleading and sadly no more Steve after you decided to keep the baby he left you, so you are alone. Your baby needs things that you can’t afford or have now you have to depend on your parents and they are not too thrilled that they have to hear a crying baby all night when they have to wake up at five in the morning for work. You think being a teenager should be all fun and games but when you have a baby you are no longer one yourself so all you do is complain and yell at your parents and they yell back.
It is so confusing for the baby to hear these arguments daily and at any moment you are going to flip out and become erratic so you leave the house and leave the baby in his crib crying, when you mom is in the kitchen you call her from your cell and tell her the baby is crying. When you come home your mom is so pissed and she starts in on you saying get it together how dare you leave your baby in that room and don’t tell me or even ask if you could go out.
Now that you have read this story do you really want this to happen to you? If you get pregnant as a young teenager your whole life can fall apart and you will not be able to have you every day freedom any more. Is this what you really want to never be able to have fun? Because every day for the rest of your life you are a parent and can’t do anything but take care of your baby. So remember the moral is to wrap it up and if that does not work then complete abstinence is the best way to go.
