Teens don't have mind set as an adult this is because they are much more vulnerable to influences and sensitive to pressure, such as damage to their reputation or the anxiety of undertaking a responsibility like pregnancy.An example that supports this argument can be seen in the movie Juno where a young girl struggles with teenage pregnancy.

I strongly disagree with this statement due to the fact that raising a child takes a lot of preparation. It shouldn't be known as consequence of a mistake. Having a child should be a blessing and a happy moment for the parents not a burden.
