our country still lags incutting teen pregnancy


Recommended Posts

Perfectly predictable problem. Girls become fertile in their mid-teens generally, and this is apparently nature's way of giving them the go ahead.


In more primitive cultures, the ones from which we evolved, it is generally beneficial for girls and women to have as many children as possible.


Our advanced world doesn't mesh so well with our evolved natures though. Our great mother didn't anticipate high school and college and careers, which today are available to everyone. Girls who give birth in their teens today are putting themselves at a serious disadvantage, at least finacially.


It should be no surprise that teen pregnancy is on the rise. I'm surprised as many can hold out that do. For one, they have their own nature's to fight. Not to mention the enormous pressures put on them by guys who can't help but admire nature's ripened fruit.
