she pro tested impatiently my daugh ter is I know said the clergyman Your teenage daughter is pregnant by a boy who hasnt finished high school It is a sad and serious situation B u t theres no sense in trying to remedy one mistake by making another that may be even great er Conversations like the one above take place frequency in pastors neighbors ICo a coiyThla Paper of Two 174 studies Premarital pregnancies have become a familiar phenom enon in our sexsaturated society When teenagers from middle class families are involved the first idea that occurs to their distraught parents is to rush them into marriage They take it for granted that their priest or min ister will endorse this course But they often learn otherwise Pastors are increasingly unwill ingto perform marriages just to regularize an illicit pregnancy say the Rev John C Knott direc tor of the FamilyLife Bureau of the National Catholic Welfare Conference When L macry to legitimatize a baby the chances for disaster are enormous Some studies indicate that four out of five such marriages go on the rocks within a few years time Rather than push immature youngsters into a marriage that has little chance of success I would much prefer to letthe baby be born illegitimately and placed for adoption Fr Knott points out that nearly every large city now has one or more homes where unwed moth ers may bear their babies in privacy And there are excellent public and private adoption agencies which stand ready to place babies in good homes It is foolish to talk about get ting married for the sake of the child says Fr Knott A baby adopted into a mature family will have a far better chance in life than one born into the highly un stable relationship of a shotgun marriage A similar attitude is expressed in a statement on responsible marriage and parenthood adopted by the United Presbyterian Church at its general assembly this year Noting that teenage marriages have proved to be particularly hazardous it urges pastors and parents to exercise great care in counseling young people whose premarital sex relations have re sulted in pregnancy Marriage it says must not be looked upon as an inevitable consequence In cases where the immaturity of one or both partners makes marriage seem unwise it says the church must be prepared to help the young couple go through with the alternative of illegitimate birth and adoption Pastors sometimes encounter among the parents of teenagers in trouble the attitude that a forced marriage is just what they deserve The Presbyterian statement re pudiates the idea that unhappy AID FOR THE drivers give emergency treatment to Wilbur G Lloyd and Jerry A Anderson after the car in which they were riding Jerry Anderson 25 is victim o a CP TT 1 by
