My Post for Change

There are currently many things being done to raise awareness about teen pregnancy in America. It is talked about in health classes in schools, there are pamphlets about teen pregnancy in doctors' offices all over the nation. There are websites about preventing pregnancy. 

But sometimes teenagers disregard these lessons because they feel that it is unlikely that this will happen and if it does, they can handle the responsibility. They feel "in the moment" and don't care about the possible results of their actions. They don't want to spend the money on contraception so they don't use it. I believe if you are not responsible enough to set aside money for preventative matters or can't afford it, then you shouldn't be having sexual intercourse.

  Also, teen feel pressured by peers to have sex and are not smart about it. This is something I plan I believe I can change. I plan to make shirts with shocking statistics about teen pregnancy on front and the words "STOP TEEN PREGNANCY" and preventative ways listed on the back. This way, teens can where them and other teens can be educated from the shirt and possibly where them too. Here is the link to the prototype of my shirt.

I have not yet made the shirt but I am planning to make them soon. If they come by the time school is over, I will ask some of my peers to wear them.

Here's a link to my first blog and a link to my second blog. Here is a link to my bibliography.


  • I interviewed my grandmother on her experience with teen pregnancy because she had my at sixteen years old. Also, I'd like to thank my mother in advance for purchasing the shirts.

    The prototype of my shirt and the interview is below.
