Unwanted Pregnancies and STDs
HAVE you heard the story about the teenage girl who had too much to drink at a neighbourhood party?
She’s pregnant now….
Sadly, this scenario is played out far too often in far too many communities. For many teenagers, one, two or three drinks too many can lead to a lifetime of regret – and this in a province that has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the country.
There’s little doubt that the consumption of alcohol increases the possibility of risky sexual behaviour.
It’s extremely worrying that many teenage drinkers do not remember what they did afterwards and that people under the influence of liquor often fail to take precautions to prevent the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases, such as AIDS and gonorrhoea.
The next time you’re tempted to help members of the in-crowd finish a bottle, think about your future and say “No”.
