    You can't say that teenagers don't know how babies are made. You can't say that teenagers don't know how much it costs to raise a baby.

    It therefore follows that if they have sex, they can have a baby that they cannot afford.
    That is taking an educated risk, same as driving an unlicensed car, skateboarding off a roof, underage drinking. There's a chance everything will be fine, but a higher chance that it will all go to hell.

    If they're old enough to understand what s.ex gets them, they're old enough to take full responsibility for it.
    Unfortunately, I know a lot of adults who don't understand the sheer depth of the financial burden of a child. I've actually read HEREfrom people with reading and writing skills that it's ok, a baby only costs a tiny bit of you breastfeed and use cloth nappies. HA!!!

    I don't think a developing mind can know how much raising a child into adulthood can cost if even grown adults don't get it.

    But I do think they need to learn
