Males Have Role Too in Teen Pregnancies

Our readers wrote letters throughout 1992, expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters to help us remember the events that mattered to Orange County readers this past year. We would like to thank the readers who took the time to share their views, and we look forward to hearing from them and others in 1992.

Re "O.C. Teen Pregnancy Rates Showing a Relentless Rise": As far as I know, the females of the human species are not parthenogenetic. Yet our society still seems to place the onus of pregnancy on the females. Why doesn't our society place more responsibility on the male? Somehow, the Don Juan attitude of male conquerors persists in spite of the feminist movement.
