    Posted: Dec 10 2013 at 9:32pm
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy reports that between 1990 and 2009 pregnancy rates have fallen by 51 percent for Black teens in the U.S.

"The decline has been fueled by three factors: more teens are waiting to have sex; they also report fewer sexual partners and better use of contraception," said Sarah Brown, campaign CEO.

Since its peak in 1990, teen pregnancy has declined 52 percent among 15-17 year-olds and by 36 percent for 18-19 year-olds among all races.

Most adults are not aware of the progress teens are making.

"The credit for this remarkable national success story goes to teens themselves," said Brown. "Unfortunately, precious few adults are aware of the good news. In fact, nearly half of Americans incorrectly believe the teen pregnancy rate in the U.S has increased over the past two decades."

(they don't actually say what the rate is though)

Nobody wants to hear this though.
Folks want to believe that every generation gets worse.

Is Plan B considered contraception under this study?

Great.

Now if we can only get the 20+ year old women to stop having babies they aren't prepared for financially and emotionally that will be a real victory.

Does this study also account for abortions? Not that I don't believe it, I just don't think everything has been factored in.

eta:It's good to hear though. That means there'll be a better outlook for a lot of these girls' future
