Teen Pregnancy is something that has been recently glorified in the media. Popular movies such as "Juno", and media figures such as Bristol Palin and Jamie Lynn Spears have helped create a culture that diminishes the true hardships of teen pregnancy. Hit MTV shows such as "Teen Mom" and "16 and Pregnant" started off with the good intentions of showing high schoolers the difficulties of what it would be like to have a child at that young age. However, these young teens featured on these shows are turning teen pregnancies into a chance to become famous and make money, detouring from the original purpose of the show. It's sending the wrong message to the youth in America, glorifying something that can truly jeopardize their futures.

The purpose of this Wiki Page is to show that there are dangerous and obvious trends in our country that are being ignored by our government and school systems because of racial and economic inequalities. Inside this Wiki you will learn facts and statistics of teen pregnancies that are regional, economical, and religiously specific, and why they appear to have a pattern of cultural inequality. This Wiki will also address why the government and school systems are only teaching certain birth control methods in certain schools, and what it is you can do to help.
