Sometimes. I think society is partly to blame as for not being open enough and informative about sex. But then I think everyone knows you can get pregnant after having unprotective sex so then it is their faults. But sometimes these girls have too many problems and think a baby would solve it and in those cases you can't blame them fully.

Yes, I believe they do. The information has been given to them by their schools (Hopefully!), so they know what risk they are taking, and they know how to reduce the risk (condoms), so in the end, the decision is theirs and the responsibility is theirs.

but you cant say that (especially if you have a female english teacher) oh yeah and what about if the girl is raped, maybe they were bunking off their sexual education lessons. Condoms dont always work, what if they were pregnent becasue it split. Maybe the old christian ideal of no sex before marraige was good.

no, there is very little information availible to young people easily....we had no sex education in my school. and theres such a bit taboo over sex that a young girl feels she cant go into the syrgery and ask for advice.

so were stuck...if young people cant make informed decsions...we as society will get everything thats coming to us.

I think it depends really, because it's

GIRL V NATURE

Nature wants girls to get pregnant, so it gives them a strong desire to have sex - same with the boys. Rather than fight these biological urges, most people give in to them.

Taking precautions is like making sure you wear a seatbelt (maybe a bit more important than that) but you see what I'm saying. It can easily be forgotten and can spoil the mood.

If a girl wants to have a baby at a young age, then they deserve everything they get (good or bad)

that is true. more effort should be put in on sex education. the teacher i had in that simply said something like: well, i think you know most of this already so lets move on to something else.

I think its just the culture of today, kids start to have sex at much younger ages than ever before, this means that a small amount arnt gonna take precautions it happens in general society but its nobody takes any notice.

so if i decide to go for a walk, i get everything that is coming to me, do i. But taking precautions is so unnatural.

If a girl doesn't feel comfortable about talking about sex with her parents it's a little difficult to get the pill when she is under 16. Even if the girl is over that age, it's a bit difficult to take it without her parents knowing.

that is true elpaw, but i still think that sense the girl didn't do it by herself she shouldn't have to handle it by herself.

The laws should tighten up on this. It's okay for the boy to get out of not seeing or paying for the baby. If they knew beforehand that if the girl got pregnant he'd have responisibility then I'm sure he'd think a little harder about using protection.

No
My school didnt teach about contraception until I was 15 but some girls start their period and can potentially have children at 9. In the UK system parents have to consent to kids having sex ed lessons but it should be compulsary in the greater interest. There isnt enough ed about the morning after pill. people think you can only take it the next day when you can actually take it approx up to 72hrs after sex. It also isnt widely taught that the coil can be inserted as a preventative measure after sex. OK they arent the best options but people should know about them nontheless.

um, they do have to pay support for the baby, do you know what you are talking about. Often it is harder for the dad to get to see the child than not seeing the child out of choice. A lot of my friends who were brought up by their mums have also been totally poisoned against their dads and from what they have told me, both seemed equally responsible. Even worse, the mum normally makes the dad pay for private school fees, etc.

also, by the same reasoning, she knows that she could get pregnant and she will have to deal with it, therefore shouldnt she ensure that he is wearing a condom.
