Teen Pregnancy Prevention Teen pregnancy has been around for centuries affecting the youth everywhere. Claim: Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs: Conclusion: By: Juliana Villanueva (Vee) Teen Pregnancy is an important health issue for the youth in America and the nation needs to do more to prevent pregnant teens. Teen Pregnancy Prevention: check out this video explaining Teen Pregnancy and what to do to prevent it Problems Teen Pregnancies cause: Statistics: Teen Pregnancy rates have decreased over the years, but are still very high in numbers. There are many things that can be done to prevent teen pregnancy. Teen Pregnancy Prevention should be made a major priority to help the youth. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that, "The U.S. teen pregnancy, birth, sexually transmitted disease (STD), and abortion rates are substantially higher than those of other western industrialized nations" ("Adolescent pregnancy and childbearing: levels and trends in developed countries"). There are tons of Prevention Programs funded by the government. They are called "Evidence-Based Programs", The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) states that, "The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reviews the evidence base on programs to reduce teen pregnancy, STIs, and associated sexual risk behaviors" ("Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance—United States"). World Health Organization (WHO) describes life for teen mothers as, "Definitely dangerous because of biological, social, and economical factors" (Mangiaterra). The nation needs to make TPP a concern and help STOP teen pregnancies. There are many non-marital births to teens. Having been said to be "Definitely Dangerous"... Raising a child is VERY expensive, this is why the nation should focus on teens and lower teen pregnancy rates. Works Cited: "Teen Pregnancy Prevention 2010-2015." Centers for Disease Control
