Teen Pregnancy

Global_Graph_2.gif


















´╗┐´╗┐Compared to other countries, the United States has a huge problem with teen pregnancies. Nearly 750,000 teenagers will get pregnant each year. As the chart shows, this is the largest number compared to all other countries. This goes to show that if you are a pregnant teen, you are not alone. Yet, teen pregnancies are not favored in other countries. In fact, most girls who are pregnant are forced to either get married or give up their babies. Even the sexual contact isn't wanted. Some girls are raped, abused, or sold into prostitution. We want you to know that teen pregnancy is an issue in the United States, teach you how to prevent it, and also teach you how to live with it.
