Conscience, moral, knowledge, pressure, evolution, responsibility are just a few terms that can be intreputed with teen pregnancy. As for what can be attributed to the decline of teen pregnancies, there are some possible reasons as for why. From obtaining more health and sex education, to knowing someone who was or is pregnant. The decline of teen pregnancies from the ages of fifteen to nineteen can then for example be attributed due to that.
In a personal sense there is some relation to the question proposed. This being that when I was born it happened to be that my mom was just sixteen and then just three years later she had my younger brother at nineteen. Now in the present having seen and heard what not only my mom but, also what my dad went through, I appreciate and understand the circumstances they went through.
In regards to what specifically has attributed to the decline of teen pregnancies. One pivotal point can be the development and more thoroughness of health and sex education. For high school graduation health and life skills are both two required classes. As a result of this, there is an effort made to help and enlighten teenagers of what some may see as an important yet delicate topic.
Furthermore, not only have health and sex education attributed to the decline of teen pregnancies. But this could also be in addition to how some teens may know or knew somebody who was pregnant. Whether or not the outcome was a beneficial and positive one or negative. This possibly could affect the person’s perspective on pregnancy.
