Abortion is the social issue I will be discussing in this paper. This is a huge controversial topic that has different opinions all over the world. Going through high school many youth want to experience the infamous act of sex for the first time. Some youth, not all, think it’s something they “must” do before graduating. But many teens don’t realize how serious the consequences can be if protection isn’t used properly or at all. Sex is the highest intimate level you can reach with someone, it is a serious matter that teens seem to look past.
Unprotected sex can result in risk of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s) in which many are incurable and life threatening. The other risk is obviously, pregnancy. Having a child when you are still considered a child is no laughing matter; it will stress you out, no social life or friends, not ready to be a parent, etc. Teen have many dreams after high school for example; go to college, travel, explore, get a good job, be a star. But this all changes when you find out your pregnant because dreams seem to diminish and reality sets in of you being a parent at a young age.
Abortion is legal but is a very controversial matter here, some think its taboo and should be illegal. Many teen couples face the decision of having the baby or aborting it. I personally witnessed this situation a few times with some friends of mine throughout high school. Some couples had babies, some aborted. Both these decision still seem to equal out as regret. Don’t get me wrong having a family and kids is what life is all about!!! But only when know you’re mature enough and ready to support that child on your own.
