The United States has made significant progress in reducing teen pregnancy rates (teen pregnancy has declined 27% between 1990 and 1999). Despite these impressive gains:
The US still has the highest rate of teen pregnancy in the fully industrialized world. “35% of teen girls get pregnant at least once by age 20”
There are more than 850,000 teen pregnancies each year. Each year a new group of adolescents reach their teen years — this means that prevention efforts must be constantly renewed and reinvented. Making a donation today will help this and future generations.
Teen pregnancy is so closely linked to other critical social issues which your donation helps such as reduce welfare dependency, improve overall child well-being, reduce out-of-wedlock births, help increase responsible fatherhood, and help create a more ready and able workforce.
