The controversial series featuring the original 'teen moms' is back on MTV, Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. CT.

'Teen Mom' (Season 3)  follows the lives of Maci, Farrah, Amber and Catelynn and their boyfriends/baby daddies, through all the challenges and drama of having a baby at such a young age.

Another MTV series, 16 and pregnant, just ended a couple of weeks ago, and followed ten girls through their teenage pregnancy and relationship drama with friends, family, and boyfriends.

An article was released last year about the reality stars' paychecks for letting a filming crew into their lives on a 24/7 basis, which makes me believe that that amount of money would make a teenager think hard about getting pregnant. (Check out what Amber supposedly made last year). I mean, on the show, the girls are always complaining about paying bills or not having enough money for essential items or to pay for school, but their paycheck amount says otherwise. How else would Farrah be able to afford getting breast implants at 19 years old? Or for Maci to trade-up her old car from a previous season on the show to a new corvette?

Do you think this series promotes teenage pregnancy, or does it serve as birth control after showing how hard it is to take care of a baby at such a young age?

Would you want to sacrifice your teenage years to have a baby, just for the money?
