Sex can be a beautiful thing, but as soon as you make the mistake of not using protection, it may ruin your life forever . Protection, such as condoms, can prevent EVERYTHING a teenager might not want. These things could include everything from a child to a sexually transmitted infection.

        Choice, it has more of an impact than you can imagine.  32% of teenage pregnancies are aborted. Pro life has been fighting for abortions to be illegal since “Roe v Wade”. 35000 u.s. teens under-aged become pregnant every year. There should not be parental consent age restrictions for abortions because  people do it anyway, It could change your life for the better, People make mistakes or don't mean it.

Rapper T.I., alongside his wife Tiny and children took a picture for Touch Magazine. The photo shows the family posing in a way similar to that of a photo taken of the fictional Huxtable family from “The Cosby Show.”  T.I. has declared his show, which documents him and his family, “The Hip-Hop Cosby show.” This has been a topic discussed on Street Soldiers, a Bay Area radio show that airs every Sunday on 106 KMEL FM. The biggest question on this show was “Is this a good comparison?”

Being a father comes with lots of responsibilities.  But most fathers don’t have what it takes to be a good one.  Some blame it on their own fathers not being in their lives but that never makes it okay for a man to abandon his child.  A lot of kids grow up fatherless and more often than not begin to look up to the men in their neighborhood who are selling drugs, involved in gang activities, or have a negative impact on their community in any way.  But why do they look up to them?  In my opinion it is because of the media taking things such as guns, cars, chains, women, and drugs and making them “cool.”  Some kids buy into it, while others choose a more positive road to success.

When I was seven years old, I was told if a boy came over to me and asked to borrow some of my coloring crayons, knock him out. Now that I am older, I think about that more and remember it means to never get into a relationship with someone who has to ask you to borrow something. He should have his own, well except for the part where you beat the person down, but this can most go vise versa. This is just one lesson a young lady may learn most likely as a teen.

Out here in the United States, specifically California, it’s hard for a single mother. Why you ask? Their struggle is more than anyone could bare. Being a woman is already hard in general. They are expected to cook, clean, stay at home, etc; all of these BS chores, but having that extra “bundle of joy” with you makes it extremely tough. Every once in awhile single mothers can catch a break, but most of the time they have to work twice as hard than others.

Having a baby isn’t a joke or a game. For some young couples it isn’t a very well thought out process either. These days, many young couples think having a baby will bring them closer and to express their love for each other want to be parents together. What I think is important to understand is just because two people love each other doesn’t mean they need to jump and have a baby. Bringing a baby into the world is a huge responsibility and should happen when two people are ready to support and provide for their child.
