    Possible reasons include:

    - Ease of access to alcohol, leading to drunkenness.
    - Lack of sex-related education.
    - Slackness of law and order.

    Any other reasons you'd include?

    All of the above. Also due to the fact that most scummy teenage mummies see them as an accessorie due to the fact that their friends may have been knocked up by their 14 year old boyfriends. They also see is as a fast track to "free housing because i has a kid, innit?".

    Do you really believe that teenage girls are thinking of housing and other aspects? I doubt it.
