MTV`s hit shows 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom have been a huge conflict since day one. Many people believe these shows are glamorizing teen pregnancy. Yes, these select teens are getting a television show because they are pregnant. The point of the show, however, is to show other teens the struggles that they may face if they get pregnant. I don`t think the show makes teens WANT to get pregnant. As a teen, it works as a source of birth control for me. I love the shows. I watch them religiously. I have watched the teens face their problems. However, I do understand the huge grow in teen pregnancies in the past few years. As a junior in high school, I currently know at least 5 pregnant girls. I know at least 5 girls who have recently had children. I believe that this has more to do with peer pressure, their family background, and their environment.
What do you think about teenage pregnancies?
