I was doing research for my marriage and families class for a paper on childhood sexual abuse and the impact on the family. During my research I came across this article about how girls who are sexually abused as a young children are more likely to be teen mothers.
the article says, "A significant correlation exists between childhood sexual abuse and teen pregnancy. An estimated 60 percent of teen girls

I personally wasn't sexually abused, just a young naive idiot.

Sometimes yes. I also agree that majority of those babies are aborted which may be the cause of the high % of teen abortions. Others are just dumb and think they know everything and think it wont happen to them

i was sexually abused and got pregnant as a teen. so true for me technically. but my pregnancy was the result of a long term relationship and believing the doctor who told my now husband he had a 4% chance of ever having children naturally. 4% sounded so safe at 16 :x:lol:

I was sexually abused as a child and did become a teen mother, but it was at the age of 19 and I was already married.



So idk if that counts.

I think this is the way i really see it. Confused girls just trying to figure out what the hell love means after being abused. just me though.

When you are raped...



The idea of sex and its purpose love/lust/desire w/e loses all of its meaning.



For me I just ..ugh..



I actually haven't been w/ that many people but when I did I had to have full control and it was MY show.
