While we often get the perspective of the girl in an onscreen teen pregnancy, in Parenthood's episode "Small Victories," it was more about the guy. The teenage boy in question, Drew, wants to have the baby and figure out a way to work it out, but his girlfriend (who is already pulling away from him) doesn't want to have it. He supports her by helping pay for the procedure and accompanying her at Planned Parenthood, but then later admits (tearfully) to his family how upset he is. It's an emotional example of a how an unwanted teenage pregnancy can be treated with honesty and respect.
