Problem with Pregnancy where I am from is that the government encourages young couples and couples in general to HAVE CHILDREN! They even give a "Baby Bonus" of a few thousand dollars too 3,000-5,000 per child birth.
This in tern attracts low life drudges/junkies etc, who go and have multiple kids to get the free cash hand out that is supposedly for the child, yet the money goes to there disgusting filthy habits albeit drinking/drugs etc not only that but we have had cases where people have a child/children, claim there free hand out (at the expense of the tax payer of course) and then try to get rid of the child....by get rid of its not always the most "humane" way.
Example: Recently there was a dead baby found inside a suit-case, dumped in a pond/man-made lake on a farm!
and that's just 1 example, I know of another where a dead baby was found in a plastic bag down a local creek!
I personally believe you should need some sort of "License" to have a child (as commical as it sounds), to prove you are fit to have a child and be able to give the child the best possibilities....but, who is to say how to raise "your" child.
Loose/Loose scenario can only hope for the best.
Many of my girlfriend's friends are pregnant just because they didnt know sex could lead to pregnancy. As far as the catholics were concerned, you dont have sex out of wedlock, and you better make damn sure you dont use a condom. Whats a condom you ask? Dont worry about it, you dont need it.
This is why shit is fucked up. I'm going to have a personal boycott of MTV.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16_and_PregnantMTV is casting again for our thought-provoking series: "16 and Pregnant" which airs on Thursdays at 10pm. This documentary series focuses on young women during their pregnancy. We realize that this is a sensitive subject that many of our young women are experiencing, so our goal is to show what pregnant women, from varying backgrounds, are experiencing in their everyday lives.
From morning sickness to mood swings, and to even the day of the baby's arrival, we would like you to let us document this exciting, life changing event. This show will allow young women to share their story in their own voice.
As time is of the essence, please email me ASAP at 16andPregnantcasting(at)mtvnmix.com. Please include what city and state you live in, your contact details, a picture and why you would want to take part in this series.
One of the biggest positive impacts you can have on society is having a child and raising him or her in a loving environment, taking the time to teach him right from wrong, supporting and educating him, and raising him responsibly.
One of the biggest negative impacts you can have on society is having a child and raising him in a broken home, not giving him attention, not being able to financially provide for him, abusing or neglecting him, and not instilling values in him.
For that reason, we should research a way to sterilize everyone at birth. Once you reach a certain age, say 26 or so, and you want to have children, then you fill out an application, undergo a psychological evaluation, submit financial data, etc., then you get the "antidote" or have the sterility process reversed, and then you can have kids.
But seriously I mean if you had a child <20 can you honestly say "I'm completely happy, I would do this all over again"? , also this
Having a child CHANGES your life, it doesn't just change your body. If you have a child currently and had it when you were <20, picture how different your life would've been if you had waited 5-10 years before you had that baby, and how different that babies life would've been if he/she had been born to you 5-10 years down the road. If you don't have a child, picture how your life would be if you got pregnant at <20 and what your boyfriends/parents reaction would be to the news.
I'd say out of college, as long as your married or engaged at least. I agree with the japanese position on this one that women should start having children before 30 since then you'll be mature and no birth defects. Im not being sexist here but except for genetic stuff males don't have as much do to with it, birth defectwise

I don't know about kids these days, and I don't understand them at all...
but trust me the last thing I want is a kid ;_; I don't know why anyone at 20 or younger would really want one, my brain just can't comprehend it probably because I have such a fear of getting pregnant and having a baby take over my life
Let people decide for themselves..
I got pregnant when I was 16, aborted it though.. Wasn't even meant to happen as it did.
