(UPI) – MTV Monday announced plans to air a new reality series called “16 & Pregnant,” which will document the true stories of several pregnant teens.

The series is slated to debut June 11 and will be comprised of six one-hour episodes, the network said.images

“MTV has a long history of reflecting the lives of our viewers with compelling reality stories,” Tony DiSanto, MTV’s president of programming, said in a statement. “’16 & Pregnant’ follows the journey of six young women going through an immensely life-changing experience at such a young age. Each episode tells a new, unique story and shows the real-life challenges they face from dealing with family and friends to school and finances as new mothers. This is the real secret life of an American teenager.”

“Given that the teen birth rate is on the rise for the first time in a generation, MTV’s ’16 & Pregnant’ is extremely timely,” added Sarah Brown, chief executive officer of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. “We applaud MTV for using their unique and compelling style of storytelling to bring this important programming to their devoted audience. The show provides an honest portrayal of the challenges of too-early pregnancy and parenthood. The stories in ’16 & Pregnant’ are full of hope, heartbreak, and real-life consequences and should be a must viewing for teens nationwide.”

As in all MTV programming, I am certain this will be done in good taste.

    wow you all are dumb.
    This show is to show what its like being a teen mom. And how hard it is. So it’ll scare you so maybe you won’t have sex or you’ll be more careful.
    Its just trying to show kids that they won’t ever want something like that at such a young age.
    After watching that show I’m definately not having sex til im older.

    #52/Pedro….Well said. It would seem you are one of the few sane people in here.

    #62/Dawn… Despite the fact that I am an abortion supporter, your argument is incredibly weak and you seem to be a complete moron who belongs on one of the MTV shows that I am sure you utterly adore. P.S. Learn to spell.

    And Finally, Alfred, my sweet Alfred, You truly are the epitome of a know it all, a true pseudo-intellectual. It is hilarious to watch someone think that they are so incredibly witty and smart when in fact, they are as dumb as a post. If you want to make an argument, don’t act like a radical, don’t add fancy words to make you look smarter, and most importantly, DON’T LIE.

    seriously, just because their preggy and still a teen doesnt it make them a slut. sure they had sex. they were most likely useing a condom or taking birth control and it failed. that does happen you know, or are you guys just too goddamned fucking ignorent and stupid to know that?

    their teens and their preggy so what. i find this show very educating in a way, because not only doe sit show what you have to go through during the pregnancy, but it shows you how hard it is to be a teen mom.

    this show is encouraging teen pregnancy at all. so get it out of your head that it is….

    do you people ever think before you speak? i was pregnant at 16 and now i have a 4 1/2 year old and i dont regret him for 1 second. and he is my number one priority-everytime me and his dad get our paycheck we get what our son needs first. and it doesnt make us sluts because we got pregnant at 16. the father of my son is the only guy ive ever been with and we’re still together so i think that means im not a slut. its just really offensive how you people can say stuff like that. yeah some young girls are stupid and shouldnt have gotten pregnant in the first place and end up being horrible mothers. but then theres people like me and others i know who are doing an amazing job at parenthood. what if someone said something like that to you? you have to put yourself in our situation. its called life and it happens and its not easy but it can be worked through. you people make me sick because you say “oh teen moms dont think of their children first”, well apparently your parents didnt teach you how to think before you say something that could really offend someone.
