College or a Baby
Many young women get pregnant while in high school and college. Most these days have abortions. I am not saying I am for or against that. What I am against is getting pregnant in the first place. If you are female and you are in school, you can kiss your education good-bye if you have a baby (married or unmarried). Some young women have been able to finish high school and/or college, but its near impossible.
The college community of Houston is very fortunate to have a Planned Parenthood clinic a few blocks from the University of Houston. The clinic not only offers birth control. It offers all sorts of other services that women need.
Back in the seventies, college girls used to fill up a car and drive to the big Planned Parenthood location in downtown Houston. For some the drive was over fifty miles. College was so important to them, they knew they have to get their degree before they began to think of motherhood. Forty years later birth control is much easier to obtain. Don't let your life pass you by, wait until until you are ready before you give life to someone else.
