In Brazil, women are not allowed to abort unless they have been raped or the pregnancy represents serious risk of life. What do you think about this question? Are you pro or con abortion and in what circumstances? Write a text about the subject comparing both legal systems.  You can introduce the HIV topic at the end of the activity as well. Do you think it is a good idea to give the baby to adoptive parents? Consider the pros and cons! Create an ad for prevention of teen pregnancy. (for magazine, radio or TV) Prepare a power point presentation for prevention of pregnancy. Choose a scene from the film. Find a title and make a comic. What do the teen mums and dads have in common and in which ways do they differ? What about their attitude towards pregnancy and how does it affect their relationhip? In some people’s opinion the film “Juno” provides a much too positive view of teen pregnancy and teaches nothing but irresponsibility. Read the following statements, then discuss: Does “Juno” take teen pregnancy lightly? I have seen Juno about three times now and feel I have a firm grasp on the struggles and concepts presented. My final conclusion was that I didn't think Juno took teen pregnancy lightly. The film didn't focus on the struggles she had to endure being pregnant, although it didn't overlook them either. It touched on her dealing with the changes her body was going through, the embarrassing stares and treatment from her classmates, and the sudden responsibilities forcing her to act older then she was. I never got a feeling like the movie was preaching that teen pregnancy isn't that big a deal. What the film does quite well is show that the sex was not the best decision, and the resulting pregnancy was a consequence which had to be dealt with. Juno dealt with it in her way, and she was responsible. Going way beyond her age, she showed that she thought about the easy way out, chose not to, and found another way to deal: give the baby for adoption. What I took away is that although teen pregnancy is not a good thing, something good can come from it! But, one man's sacrifice or pain is another man's joy. I think that's the message here (although it may not work out this beautifully in ALL cases).

Juno seems like a sweet little movie. The dialogue is adorable - snappy, smart, funny, captivating - and who wouldn't enjoy that? But I was Juno once - that sixteen year old pregnant girl, and life isn't like that at all. The film delivers messages to young women that aren’t realistic. Juno is an adorable fantasy - I think that when you're 16 years old you don't understand that, but when you're 50 years old you do. Alexandrina Vila Franca 2014/2015
