"Teen Pregnancy" Package

Top of page

Two titles on teen pregnancy. Baby Blues, a fast-paced drama made especially for teenage viewers, is a compelling discussion-starter on the topics of sex, responsibility, and contraception. Kristen is bright, talented and popular but her world begins to crumble when she suspects that she may be pregnant. Suddenly she and steady boyfriend Jason are forced to face some difficult questions. Will they keep the baby? What are their feelings about abortion? What about adoption? How will their choice affect their future plans? Baby Blues reflects the teenage point of view without moralizing or sugar-coating the issue. This open-ended film presents options without giving advice. It dramatizes the consequences of ignoring birth control in a way that breaks through the "it can't happen to me" barrier (24 min. 30 sec.). Playing for Keeps: In this grittily realistic documentary, Debbie, Karen and Tracey describe in their own words what it's like to be a teenage single mother. In the process of telling their stories, they talk about relationships, family support or the lack thereof, birth control, the economics of poverty, and their own truncated dreams and aspirations (48 min. 49 sec.).
