believe there are more single teen mothers in America now than there are adult, single mothers.
Teen pregnancy is a serious consequence of early initiation of sexual activity. In my opinion, one of the many negative consequences in being a teen parent is dropping out of school. This creates a lack of employment opportunities, and in many cases, this leads to a dependence on welfare. I have heard that taxpayers will be required to pay more and more each year towards state aid, and most of that state aid is used to help teen parents.
