Kelsey L. Mullen 12:20 Speech Speaker #12 CONTENT SECTION Topic: Birth Control General Purpose: To persuade; question of policy. Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to support the use of birth control. Central Idea: Today I will be letting you know more about each of the options that accompany  college pregnancy, as well as informing you on a way to avoid this problem: the use of birth  control. Pattern of Organization: Problem Solution Title: Babies or Birth Control OUTLINE I. INTRODUCTION A. What are you looking at? Oh this? Yes; I’m pregnant. B. Being pregnant changes everything; most college students are left with 3 options:  drop out, abort, or put the child up for adoption. C. In 2001, 49% of pregnancies in the United States were unintended. (Lawrence B.  Finer “Disparities in Rates of Unintended Pregnancy in the United States, 1994  and 2001.”)

D. Today I will be letting you know more about each of the options that accompany  college pregnancy, as well as informing you on a way to avoid this problem: the  use of birth control. E. Let us first look at what happens when a college woman gets pregnant. (preview) II. BODY I don’t think I really have to go into how a woman gets pregnant do I? Let’s  just say it has to do with the birds and the bees.  Now that we’ve figured that  out, let’s look at the consequences that arise with college pregnancy. A. As I have said previously, about 49% of pregnancies are unwanted.  This is due  mainly to unprotected sex.  Many problems can occur when women have  unprotected sex and once a pregnancy results, a woman is left with very few  options.  1. One of the biggest concerns with unprotected sex is STDs or Sexually  Transmitted Diseases.  a.  As careful as a person can be, there is almost always a chance for  and STD to be transferred from one person to another. An STD that is  very common is AIDS. b. It is a fact that over 50% of new HIV infections occur among people  under age 25. (Cool Nurse, “AIDS/HIV”) How old are you?
