Abortion is and has been a major effect on the american teenage society of today. It has also been considered one of the most talked about topics all around the world due to the increasing amount of birth rates but why is abortion always the first considerable thought an irresponsible person thinks about doing, once they have gotten themselves in the situation they are in. Teenage pregnancy is something that is taken place in every part of the world from ages starting from 14 years young to 19 years old “children having children ” as most people in society would say. These are teenagers who have not yet had a chance to experience what the real world is about. Most may have thought at the time that they should just have fun until they become adults but all of this is lead because of them having unprotected sex.There are many things that can be used to prevent a teenage pregnancy such as condoms and birth control. Some teenagers may not think about the consequences that unprotected sex can cause them like getting a disease such as Ex. HIV/AIDS, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, Herpes, Human Papillomavirus, Molluscum Contagiosum, and Pubic Lice(crabs) These are the most commonly known; sexual transmitted diseases anybody can receive from their partner. Once having an STD there is no possible cure to get rid of it. You have to live the rest of your life with a monstrous disease. Many don’t realize that these diseases can cause cancer, human warts, women’s fertility and ability to conceive; or could also be passed down to their unborn child etc…Protection should always be the first though in your head when you are beginning to start your sexual relationships. You are preventing yourself from sickness and becoming a teenage mother mother; that would have to go through an abortion for not being prepared. So in conclusion you should think twice before going any further once you are stuck in a situation as the ones mentioned, research information before doing anything that can possibly harm your body and always remember to care for yourself.
