Seminar Paper: Teen Pregnancy
Date of Submission




Seminar Paper: Teen Pregnancy
Teen pregnancy, predominantly known as adolescent pregnancy is a situation when a
female aged below 20 years gets pregnant. The date of the mother starts immediately after the
end of pregnancy, rather than the approximated date of conception. The consequences of
pregnancy among girls 18 years and below cannot be repaired. In particular, it usually disrupts
the rights of girls with serious consequences with regards to their reproductive and sexual health.
This issue usually predisposes female teenagers to some health concerns, such as being
physically incapable of sustaining the pregnancy (McElroy & Moore, 2018). The intensity of this
problem in the community level demands the engagement of a holistic approach that will help to
manage the concern. The approach should be designed in a way that rather than modifying the
behavior of the victims, it should help to manage the causes of the problem. That said, this
seminar paper deliberates about teenage pregnancy comprehensively, outline its implications,
and conclude by recommending for future actions.
Issue Identification
Issue Definition and Description
It would be possible to define the age of the mother by confirming the end date of her
pregnancy, rather than, looking at the date when she conceived. That said, statistics disregards
pregnancies that were realized at the age of 19 and ended at the 20th birthday of the woman. In
other words, the statistics on the marital status of the mother are ascertained by whether she was
married when her pregnancy ended and not the time when she conceived. To that end, one will
realize that teenage pregnancy is an issue which can be conceptualized as getting pregnant before
hitting the age of 20 years (McElroy & Moore, 2018). Similarly to other women, female
teenagers experience complications based on pregnancy. The only difference is those female



teenagers are exposed to other additional complications; one of them being unable to sustain the
pregnancy physically. The issue is a social concern because being a teenage mother can
jeopardize one's education where there would be higher chances for one to leave school to care
for her new family, and that is her child.
Magnitude and Severity of the Issue
Globally, teenage pregnancy incidence ranges from 143 in 1,000 in some countries in
Sub-Saharan to 2.9 in 1,000 in South Korea. With the focus on the US, the unplanned cases on
teenage pregnancy between age 15 and 19 years stand at 82%. The highest incidence of teenage
pregnancy is evident in the US, UK, along with New Zealand, while the countries that record the
low incidence of teenage pregnancy are South Korea and Japan. Pieces of evidence confirm that
some risk factors jeopardize female teenagers to the problem and some of them include not to
mention some of them have been raised from low-income families, being raised in rural areas,
