Teen Pregnancy: Your Questions Answered

Author(s): Quinn, Paul;
Contributors: Quinn, Paul;
Abstract:

Pregnant teens have three options—abortion, adoption, or keeping the baby—and each comes with its own challenges and issues.

Teen pregnancy can have an enormous impact on adolescents, their families, and society. What options are available to teens? What resources are available, and what rights and responsibilities do the pregnant teen, the father, and the teen's parents have? Do pregnancy and birth pose unique health risks for mother and child? How does being born to a teen mother affect a child’s health and future?

Part of Greenwood’s Q&A Health Guides series, Teen Pregnancy: Your Questions Answered follows a reader-friendly question-and-answer format that anticipates readerS&Rsquo; needs and concerns. Prevalent myths and misconceptions are identified and dispelled, and a collection of case studies illustrates key concepts and issues through relatable stories and insightful recommendations. Each book in the series also includes a section on health literacy, equipping teens and young adults with practical tools and strategies for finding, evaluating, and using credible sources of health information both on and off the internet—important skills that contribute to a lifetime of healthy decision-making.


  • Makes the subject approachable and accessible to readers through a simple Q&A format
  • Helps readers to improve their research and critical thinking skills in a Guide to Health Literacy section
  • Provides real-world examples of concepts discussed in the book through case studies
  • Dispels popular misconceptions surrounding teen pregnancy in a Common Myths section and points readers toward accurate information
