Factoids from Alan Guttmacher Institute - 1995 - US Teenagers: At age 15, 75% are virgins. At age 17, 50% are virgins. At age 20, 20% are virgins. Every year on average 50.000 girls under 18 fall pregnant. A report on the health department website shows that there has been progress towards the target which has been met but warns that ‘progress needs to accelerate’ for the target to be met fully. Overall the number of pregnancies has gone up to more than 47,000 a year, this was similar in the 1970’s across western Europe, but this is not the case in other states, in other states they have had a success in bringing down the figures of pregnancies, Britain now has the highest teenage birth rate. The number of teenage pregnancies ending in abortion rose. In 2005, 47 per cent of pregnancies among 16- and 17-year-olds were terminated, compared with 42 per cent in 1998. Among younger girls, the rate rose from 53 per cent to 58 per cent. What are some of the decisions made after pregnancy? http://www.jrf.org.uk/sites/files/jrf/n50.pdf Why do so many teenagers get pregnant? So many teenagers now get pregnant because in school they learn about sex education without having the knowledge of love or knowledge meaning of marriage says Dr Rajlakshmi Darbari. The NHS says to have sex without marriage is good for your health, because of this statement teenagers get thinking that it is okay for them to have sex at a young age which then results in them getting pregnant. http://www.journalism.co.uk/66/articles/535402.php Contact Name: DR, RAJ DARBARI Role: AUTHOR Company: R J DISTRIBUTIONS LTD.

So many teenagers are now having sex you do no think about after sex which may lead to getting pregnant and because so many of these girls are young they are jus not ready to settle sown and have children. http://www.mariestopes.com.au/news1/media_coverage/why_are_so_many_teena gers_having_abortions/ There are a number of reasons as to why teenagers are having abortions one of them is that whilst being in a relationship and in the first 12 months of sexual activity women are still deciding what contraception to use, and by then it is too late and the teenage pregnancy occur round about this time. According to Terri Foran the medical director of FPA health most teenagers will choose just one form of contraception which usually is condoms which has a five-seven percent failure rate. Majority of the times sex is not planned it is something which happened when you least expect it and at a young age the one thing you do is not plan for a baby you just think about having sex, which then may lead to being pregnant so this is another reason why so many teenagers are having abortions because becoming pregnant is something the teenagers didn’t think about and are not ready to take that next step of being a parent to their child.

All this information will help my production a lot because I have gained a lot more information by doing research about teenage pregnancy and have included a lot of facts and figures which will shock the audience because they will have gained some new information. I will also try and add in views from males so I have a wider audience to watch my production.
