It can be a tough, difficult situation but you don't have to do it alone.
Access to free birth control leads to low teen birth and abortion rates. After letting 9,000 mostly poor and/or uninsured women in the city choose what type of contraception they'd use if it were free, researchers found that women that have access to free contraception don't get pregnant as often.
So here we go, another celebrity who wants a baby, a family, a happily ever after.
I'll admit I have watched the show, Teen Mom, more than once. While I was initially drawn in by my curiosity, after watching only a few episodes I found myself feeling really bothered by the show's drama. I felt like I was watching a documentary that could be compared to Maury.
Take away the lights, the camera, and the millions of viewers and wonder what it would actually be like to go through senior year of high school with a baby bump. Would you feel anxious and excited or alone and scared? Would your family and friends support you or leave you and your growing belly behind?
I realize that most of us don’t live at home anymore; that most of us are no longer in high school or living with parents. But I stumbled upon this study recently and can’t stop thinking about it. In a nutshell, Dutch parents support their teenagers’ sexuality and it results in lower STI and lower teen pregnancy rates.
The new season of Teen Mom premiers tonight at 10 PM on MTV and this CollegeCandy intern couldn't be more excited. Not only do we get to find out if Amber's havin' another baby, but I had the chance to chat with everyone's favorite mama, Maci. She filled me in on how her life has changed since she moved from Chattanooga, Bentley started talking up a storm, and even gave the CollegeCandy readers some invaluable dating advice.
So Bristol Palin's got a new PSA out there reminding young teens to think before they get nakey. In it she asks a lot of questions, which prompted some questions of our own:
Teen Mom. Yes, like most people, I am obsessed. I am still trying to figure out what Catelynn has that I don’t (besides braces, a trailer, and a 1995 JCPenny homecoming dress) that makes Tyler choose HER over me. SO unfair.
For my 20th birthday last year all my friends congratulated me on surviving teen pregnancy. Although we had a little chuckle, teen pregnancy is a huge issue that is only getting worse. Honestly, with shows like I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant I'm completely baffled as to why young girls are still getting knocked up, but they are. A lot.
This morning on Good Morning America, hypocrite Bristol Palin discussed her plan to push an “abstinence-only” message on teens. She couldn’t quite explain how abstinence got her where she is today (with, ahem, a child at age 18), but she was very confident that “abstinence is the only way you can effectively, 100%, prevent pregnancy.”
Ever since her role in Juno, I've had an unhealthy crush on Ellen Page. While she's not as mainstream as our past girl crushes, this doesn't make her any less deserving of the title.
Bristol Palin sat down to for her first interview since having her son in December and, true to Palin form,...
