Teen Pregnancy on the Decline

Hosted by

Less than half of teens report having sex, according to a new study out today from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Add that to recent studies that show that teen pregnancy is on the decline, and it looks like we’ve got a trend! Until you drill down a bit into the numbers. For instance, here in L.A., there are more teen pregnancies among poor girls and Latina and black girls.
