What specific issue in youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights that interest you most? Why?

Abortion. This topic always struck me since even some people I am close to and in my own age have experience abortion due to unplanned pregnancy. When I saw on the news or reports about young mothers, it made me think how their future would turn out. How will they be able to fulfill their education, live their adolescent life like other people when they have to be a mother at very young age? This is the reason why abortion is the issue that most interest me.
