Teen pregnancy

'''Teen pregnancy''' refers to the unplanned pregnancies of unmarried school-age girls, and very often of girls who conceived or gave birth below the age of consent. It is a major social problem as teen pregnancies most often either result in [[abortion]] or in the raising of children in unstable single-parent families. The increasing rate of teen pregnancies is a consequence of increasing atheistic and secular pressures in modern society. These include the influence of [[Hollywood values]] and other manifestations of materialistic culture which erode and undermine moral standards, the hostility of school boards to the exercise of religious faith, and the bias of [[public school]] sex education against [[abstinence education]] programmes, which are the only sure safeguard against teen pregnancy.
