What’s the Story? Views of Pregnant Teens in Qualitative Research

    Abstract

    Despite declining birthrates, teen pregnancy is still seen as an “epidemic” centered among low-income young women of color. Professional, conservative, and social justice views of the “problem” vary greatly. This article reports on the first findings from a systematic review of qualitative studies from 1989 to 2014. Forty-one studies were identified, and the narratives in them varied. Variation in perspective was related to the profession of the study author and whether the author professed a feminist and critical race perspective. Findings inform theory, practice, and policy.
