Introduction

Title: teenage pregnancy and parenthood Author: NHS Published date: since 1996 - 2003 Publishers: Swann, C., Bowe, k., McCormick, G., Kosmin, M. Website: www.nhs.uk The website I used is reliable because there are statistics from different years. I will include some statistics in the information below. The content of the website is based on teenage pregnancy and parenthood. The information is suitable for all ages. The language the website uses is formal because there isn't any slang language. The layout of the website is very good because the information is put into paragraphs with subheadings saying what each paragraph is about.

The second statistic was that 7,617 of these conceptions were to under 16s and 54.5% of conceptions to under 16s ended in legal abortion. The response I had in my research which I found out that was similar to my questionnaire was that I had asked this question: Would pregnancy affect family life? Most people had responded as yes and in my research it had had said pregnancy will affect family because teenage mothers are more likely to be lone parents. ...read more.
