Why are the vast majority of births among teenaged and early 20s mothers illegitimate?

Because they do not teach morality in schools anymore: fact is want they do teach is; gay is ok and whatever you do is legitimate and you should feel good about that.

You sound like a little kid asking "How can Aunt Mary have a baby if she's not married?" What is it about "pregnant, but not married" that you don't understand? What is it about "sex is very seductive, especially among young people" that you don't understand. What is it about "a great many men employ pressure, deception, and other forms of manipulation to persuade women to unchastity" that you don't understand? There a father as well as a mother involved in those pregnancies, you know.

It's because teens and 20-somethings are still driven by their hormones more than their judgment. The judgment center of the brain doesn't come to maturity until about age 30. Until then, young men and women are driven by lust. They think it will never happen to them, they just want the fun and thrill of sex. I've seen a number of "I want to have a baby" statements on Yahoo Answers from young women who just want the experience of having a baby, and haven't thought through what it will take to support one. And their boyfriends are glad to use whatever sweet talk it takes to get into their pants. For them, it's all about conquest and pleasure. They refuse to take responsibility for their seed and just walk away, telling themselves the girl is stupid and gullible, and it serves them right if they get pregnant. Not his fault! (what a lie!)

They are illegitimate because they are married or sometimes don't even know who the father was.
