I am trying to write an essay on feminist views
on teenage pregnancy-I am trying to look at
views of Liberal feminists, but other types
of feminists would be good as well. I have
had trouble finding info about this. I will
be grateful for your help with the information.
Where should I look?
I don't believe there is one feminist
opinion on teenage pregnancy. In general, I think
that feminists think that is too young to have
children and thus should create alternative options
for teens, especially for those for whom this
isn't legitimately a choice.
That said, however,
feminists certainly support options that make
being pregnant and a teen easier on them -- regardless
of the ultimate choice they make (i.e. abortion,
adoption, delivery, etc...) -- for instance,
rights to continue your education, adequate health
care, affordable child care, etc... You might
for Youth for more information.
