Answer . I actually became pregnant at 16 myself and it was difficult. In no way do I regret it at all. The only complications were that my body rejected the prenancy and I developed PIH ( pregnancy induced hypertension) and pre ecclampsia. I had my daughter at 29 weeks and she was 2 lbs 9 oz and she is as healthy as can be now! She is 7. However the crazy thing is at the same time my best friend was also pregnant and was also 16 she had no problems and did just fine, however she gave her son up for adoption. There are plenty of optins for teen pregnancy's not just abortiion. There is plenty of support out there. No as far as the aftermath I am not sure what you want answerd. Every body is not the same so as far stretch marks or anything else of that nature look at your mothers us women tend to stretch like our mothers.

Is underage pregnancy wrong?

Now there's a great question! So why is it that people who can have sex and babies are discouraged from having sex and babies by society, laws and their parents? It's because the teenager's body grows up a little faster that the person's ability to figure out how to care for the children produced. This is not generally good for the babies--because the parents can't support them. This is not good for the young parents, because they are raising babies before they can grow up enough to support themselves--and the babies. This is not good for society which has to pay for the resulting mess of underage parents and badly cared for babies. Yes that is a good Question they have a certain age limit for when you can have sex because if a girl gets pregnant to young it can cause a lot of damage or even kill her because she is not fully developed to have a baby yet because she is still growing also you are not mature enough to have a baby under the age of 16 even if you think you are and also the farther don't really stick around when you have a baby but not all boys are like that but most are. In my opinion it's best to have a baby when you have been with someone a few years or are even married It mainly depends on the person. Some people think it's wrong and some people don't think much of it. Most people think it's wrong because they're still children themselves and them bringing another child into the world seems very irresponsible. If your under 18 your most likely not even out of school yet, so you don't have a job, house, car, etc. and chances are you will drop out because juggling a child and school isn't as easy as it seems. On top of all of that, you can't go out with your friends like you used to, you have to stay home and change diapers and feed your child. instead of getting money and thinking about buying that new shirt you've been wanting, your going to have to buy diapers, formula, baby clothes, baby wipes, etc. and that's how I feel. I'm not sure about how the people that don't think much of it feel, but my guess would be that they think that if your responsible enough to have sex, your responsible enough to carry a baby and support it.

How can smoking alcohol and drug lead to underage pregnancy?

When you are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol you tend to do things you wouldn't normally do. If you are using as a teenager, chances are you are just trying to fit in with the crowd. If you'll do that to fit in, you'll have sex to fit in too. You may not be as careful or use birth control when having sex when you're high, you may not even realize you had sex...depending on how much drugs/alcohol you have used. Without protection, you can also get STD's, AIDS, warts, crabs, ...any number of unpleasant diseases. If your partner "says" he/she doesn't have anything...maybe he/she doesn't know. Alot of diseases are dormant, hidden, and can still be passed on to the partner. The WORST thing drugs and alcohol can lead to though is addiction. And that can make you do things you never imagined... from committing crimes, lying stealing, DUI, even suicide.

Why can it be said that adults who smoke and drink alcohol are hypocritics when they condemn youths for using drugs?

Adults smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol (in moderation) are LEGAL activities. Using drugs are ILLEGAL activities. Adults are aware of the risks of lung cancer. Children, most of the time, fail to recognize the risks involved in using recreational drugs. They really do need adults to steer them away from drugs. And good friends to support those decisions. How many people that you REALLY look up to do recreational drugs. Your coaches don't. Your teachers don't. The president of the local bank doesn't.. The best things in life are obtained DRUG FREE. I know that sounds lame, but it's very, very true. Do you really want to grow up to be a drug addict? Do you want to live in some hole-in-the-wall apartment all your life? Waiting for your next high? Leave the drugs alone. When you are an adult, smoke and drink if you must. But, as long as you drink in moderation, you won't have to worry about getting busted.

What is the Pa punishment for underage possession of alcohol?

My 17 yr. old son was charged in PA with possesion of alcohol. When the officers write it up it is coded as "underage drinking", which I think is BS because he hadn't drank it and they even gave him a breathalyzer test which was negative. Clearly possesion and consuming alcohol are two entirely different acts, but according to the law, it is one in the same. I wonder if you can be charged with murder just because you own a gun. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Anyway, apparently you can't fight the system. We pled not guilty and paid $50.00 court fees. The charge was not dropped at the hearing. He was offered to do 20 hours of community service or take a class for 2 weekends(at the cost of $100.00). He will lose his license for 90 days. However, this charge will remain on his driving record as "underage drinking", how's that for fair and just law? Charged with drinking even though he hadn't. I guess that taught my son a good lesson about the fairness of our laws. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve punishment for what he did, but to classify these to acts as one in the same is total crap!

I am afraid this is impossible to answer without knowing all the details..

Typically, this should be settled with a no contest plea and a small fine/alcohol program/work. If it was more serious then some sort of house arrest/curfew could be imposed and/or community service work imposed and/or alcohol program enforced.

Are teens who smoke more likely to use other drugs or alcohol?

The answer to this is yes, but I must say so tentatively because its not for the reasons you may think. An individual who smokes must have been open-minded to smoking for him or her to have started, and they are more likely to use drugs and alcohol because of this personality trait, not because they smoke weed. Also, marijuana laws in many countries can give the impression that weed is a "gateway drug" because in order to buy it one must go to a dealer who often sells other drugs, which can lead to curiosity and an easy way to obtain other drugs. However, in spite of all this, 80% of drug users worldwide reported to ONLY smoke marijuana (but I don't believe this includes alcohol).

What is worse drinking alcohol smoking or taking drugs?

Drugs are worse this is not an opinion it is scientifically proven. Keeping the confounding variables the same quantity wise class A drugs are worse This is an entirely unfounded statement. Now there are many different drugs. Some of them are worse than alcohol or cigarettes but the vast majority of them are less dangerous. Soft drugs, that is drugs that produce no or next to no physical addiction and are non toxic are pretty safe. Safer than caffeine or aspirin even in some aspects. Soft drugs include: LSD Mescaline Magic Mushrooms Marijuana You then have drugs that cause a low amount of physical addiction and are moderately toxic. That mid range group includes: Caffeine MDMA(ecstasy) Ketamine GHB Then you have the top group of hard drugs, which are fairly physically addicting and fairly toxic, this group includes: Alcohol Nicotine/tobacco Methamphetamine/Amphetamines Heroin Cocaine/Crack Oxycodone/Vicodin/Px Opiates Now that only accounts for how addictive they are and how easy they are to OD on. Their longer term health effects and dangers of intoxication are fairly different. Now Meth is claimed to be the worlds most dangerous drugs often. Meth is a very 'ugly' drug. It makes people's teeth rot out (this is due mostly bruxism and dry mouth caused by the drug, but is actually preventable i the right precautions are taken when using the drug) and does damage to skin and hair, however it doesn't do severe organ damage(except to your brain, which is does damage to your pleasure centers but not much else). So while meth may seem like a really terrible drug it's mostly just 'surface' damage. The meth'd out rages you see people go through really aren't any worse than a drunken rampage if you think about it either. Now Alcohol is probably the worst drug in existence, period. But there's a few things that keep it from appearing so. Social acceptability is one. It's clean, it's not cut with poisonous chemicals like illegal drugs. It's consumed in a manor where it get's into your body slowly. You'll notice that people don't generally eat Cocaine or Meth, even though both these drugs can be taken by mouth. That's because they're much weaker if the same amount is taken this way. The same is true for alcohol. If people injected alcohol(yes you can inject alcohol, there have even been a handful of alcoholics who have) then it would easily be the worst drug by far. It's pretty much toxic to everything in your body. It causes more organ and brain damage than any other drug. But because it can be consumed by mouth and in smaller amounts and it isn't cut with things, it's safer than the dirty drugs like heroin and cocaine. Now if these drugs weren't cut with things and weren't taken in by injection often, alcohol would be worse.

What happens if you drink alcohol underage?
