Transcript Southwest/Montrose NOW Dr. Peggy Smith, Department of Obstetrics and Gynacology at Baylor, adressed a joint program meeting of Southwest/Montrose NOW Jan-22 at Jungman Library. Her topic was the general stae of teenage pregnacies and how this affects Houston in particular. Her particular concern was the alarming increase in births to very young girls, 11 to 15 years of age. The pregnancy presents a serious health risk to the mother who is herself a growing child. The infants born to such immature parents are at very high risk of death, retardation, multiple birth defects as well as abuse and neglect. The very young mother does not have the emotional maurity to cope with the demands of a newborn infant. The social cost to the young mother and to the babies cannot even be calculated accurately. Education for the mother is the first casuality; often the teenage father's educetion is interrupted also. Marriages, when they do take place have little hope for survival. The earlier the first pregnancy, the greater the likelyhood of a second and third. We were all profoundly moved by the data she presented to us. As feminists in Houston, we must concern ourselves with the fate of these children who have children. We discussed the role of sex education and the need to overcome the public resistance to formal instruction in the school systems. We could not solve the problem in one evening, but the need for action was dramatically clear.
