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, and the bias of public school sex education against abstinence education programmes, which are the only sure safeguard against teen pregnancy.
