A counselor from school referred me to a local support group at a nearby highschool, you may want to try that. There's a lot more girls out there in your situation than you may think!

I don't know if there is a support group for parents with pregnant teenagers, but if not, there needs to be, because this is a epidemic, and these girls seems to be totally clueless as to what they're getting themselves into.

Hi, I don't know of a forum dedicated to pregnant teens. But I just started a forum this week for parents period. And speaking as a woman that got pregnant at 16 and then 18, I can tell you that it's not the end of the world for these teens. Having parents and/or friends and family around is the best thing for them right now. They need support and to be told that it won't be easy but that everyone will help them so that they can finish school and get careers.

Should girls who get pregnant under the age of sixteen receive a benefit?

When you chose to have intercourse there is always a risk of getting pregnant even if you are on birth control. Many times teens feel like having intercourse makes them "grown up" but yet they are not able to independently take care of themselves let alone a baby. Should teens get a benefit if they are pregnant...no. Do they get benefits...yes. Do they realize how much that helps...no. Typically teens end up staying with their parents and the parents help raise the child and due to society not wanting the innocent baby to suffer the teens do get benefits.
