Rationale- I am writing an editorial as a teenager that has been witnessing teen pregnancy around my high school and in the community. I am giving advice to other teenage girls in a teen magazine called Seventeen Magazine. Teen pregnancy has increased over time, and giving possible solutions to prevent teen pregnancy. Teachers, peers, and parents have slowly begun to look down upon girls that happen to get pregnant. It seems like teen pregnancy is a "trend" today, and the trend needs to be broken. They've start to believe that there isn't a great chance for them either graduating on time, or even graduating at all in some cases. In the article, I am going to be to influence the safety and protection of teens having sex and the arguments that are taken because of pregnancy. There has been a huge controversy about teens having sex, portrayed greatly through media and articles in magazines, on the internet, and even just around school. I will be addressing the language and conflict around the situation of teen pregnancy, all the while telling about how I see the situation and the language involved around it.

Babies were having babies, and it's not right at all. Babies shouldn't be taking care of a baby, that's not how it's supposed to go down.
Young girls and boys have been exposed to sex at the age of 12 in a program known as FLASH. FLASH gives information about sex, diseases brought along with sex and how to be protected from sexual transmitted diseases and pregnancy. I myself have just forgotten about what was taught in FLASH, and other girls most obviously have as well. Even though this program is being brought to their attention, not all young teens are smart enough to actually think that they can be the victims of any of this. Pregnancy isn't due to the lack of teenagers knowing about what could actually happen when you have unprotected sex, but the lack of thorough knowledge about the topic of trend today; sex. It's as if all the information was just wiped out of our minds. Although this information that is taught during the FLASH course is understandable and
