image for Government Raise Age of Consent to 20
Is it really ok for teens to have children...Is it bad for the child itself ?

The government in United Kingdom are trying to push the legal age that a person can have sex to 20.

Last Thursday the prime minister and the government spoke in the house of commons about this subject. They believe its a good idea and may help to quell the increase of teenagers falling pregnant at a young age.

A lot of people are happy with this and believe that it should happen. Lisa Barkley for Essex says "I think its a joke these days 16 year olds are falling pregnant and not being able to cope. I think its great the government should do something about it before 5 year old start falling pregnant"

Tom Paige added, "I think this should happen, I mean its a disgrace!"

On the other hand, people disagree with this and believe that the government should be doing more to tackle knife crime than when a person can have sex.

Holly Newpost from London says "I think the government need to stop peeking into other peoples business and try to cut down knife crime."

A nameless teen that was pregnant added "I can't believe this the government think there doing the best when really they're just trying to control people its a joke!"

Teen pregnancies have risen by 10% in the UK alone making the UK the country with the highest teen pregnancies.
