The US Encourages Teenage Pregnancy

Maybe "encourage" is a bit srtong. But the fact that you have to pay for an abortion in the U.S makes girls go ahead with pregnancy because they can't afford to pay for an abortion or they're too scared to tell their parents they want money for an abortion. Why doesn't the U.S take note from countries such as the U.K where abortions are free? Then there would be less teenage pregnancies.

Nothing is free in the land of capitalism! There is good money to be made off of human suffereing.

maybe girls should realize what they are getting into before they have s_x and not once they become pregnant. abortions should not be free!

 

The answer is........ - September 6

My question is not should we pay for abortions but why not pay for everything they will need for the rest of their lives since we can't possibly need or spend all the money we are making ourselves. Everyone knows we taxpayers have way too much money and don't need any for retirement because we'll have Social Security coming out our yeng yang. Better yet, why don't I just give them each a checkbook of mine and we'll all be better off for it. Right? Ted Kennedy will be so proud of me.

if abortions were free in u.s. more and more teenagers would be having s_x because they wouldnt have to worrie about paying lots of money.. i think that birth control should be free but not abortions.. u.k has free abortions because they have the most pregnant teenagers

Abortions are not free because they would be used as s form of birth control and more teens would get pregnant knowing that they could just go and get a free abortion. It makes you think a little more about what you're doing.

 

same in australia, illegal. - September 7

its the same as in Australia. im doing a legal a__signment on it right now!!. In Queensland (a state) it's cla__sed as ILLEGAL but if you pay for it you can still get one. It discrimminates against the women that may not have the money to get one!! as well as this it encourages "back alley' abortions which are extremely dangerous for the women. Australia only ends up having spend more money on health and hospitals because the women who get it done illegaly usually get problems e.g infection, may bacome sterile,and they end up with long hospital stays.

 

WRONGG!!!! - September 7

THERE WILL ACTUALLY BE MORE TEENAGE PREGNANCIES, JUST MORE OF THEM BEING TERMINATED AND YOUNG GIRLS BODIES BEING VIOLATED AND DESTROYED BECUASE THEY ARE IRRESPONSIBLE AND IMMATURE... YAY.... WHAT A GREAT WAY TO BE....... ABORTION ALSO ENCOURAGES TEEN PREGNANCY.. SO WHY DONT YOU GET A BRAIN BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUNTH!

 

KAREN IS RIGHT - September 8

ILLEGAL ABORTION ALSO ENCOURAGES TEEN DEATH AS WELL.SO MANY WOMEN DIE EVERY YEAR FROM BACK ALLEY ABORTIONS, THEY DON'T HAVE RIGHTS OVER THEIR BODIES, THE GOVERNMENT DOES!!! I MY BODY, MY CHOICE!!!!!!T ITS BEEN SAID IT ENCOURAGES ABORTIONS CAUSE THEN WOMEN SEE THAT AS AN EASY WAY OUT SO THEY MAY NOT USE PROTECTION AS OFTEN BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT ALSO MEANS WOMEN/GIRLS ARE FORCED TO BECOME PARENTS WHEN THEY ARENT READY AND THAT IS NOT FAIR. EVERY CHILD HAS THE RIGHT TO A GOOD HOME, LOVING FAMILY WITHOUT ABUSE. AND UNFORTUNATLY, MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BABIES WHEN THEY ARE NOT READY, END UP ABUSING THE CHILDREN.

 

mad - September 8

yeah, its not fair to say, oh yeah now you're pregnant suffer the consequences. that is not fair on the child. consequence means something that you dont like, that child is something the teen doesn't wan't and they are most likely abuse it. and don't say oh there is adoption, but even though there is, even though the teen doesn't want the kid they still a majority of the time keep it.

 

A STAR - September 8

It doesnt matter if there free or not if teens took more care in what they do tey wouldnt need to worry about paying or not. CONDOMS ARE FREE surely that should encourage you to use them. if not DONT HAVE s_x

 

!!! - September 8

Since the UK has socialised health care, they hand out free abortions because it's cost effective? Or is it because their teens are more informed, they make better choices?
