As the Pendulum Swings: Teenage Childbearing and Social Concern.
Furstenberg, Frank F., Jr.
Family Relations, v40 n2 p127-38 Apr 1991
Assesses the evidence for revisionist views of teenage childbearing. These theories suggest that the perception of teenage pregnancy as a growing social problem has been caused by the political agendas of certain interest groups; the consequences of early childbearing have been exaggerated; and pregnancy among disadvantaged teenagers may be an adaptive response to poverty.
