Comment: statistics on teen pregnancy are useless.

(See in situ)


statistics on teen pregnancy are useless.

Until you know the percentage of teens who got pregnant on purpose, and the percentage of teens who did not care weather they got pregnant or not. Especially since the states with the "abstinence only" education, tends to be the states with the highest number of people on welfare and section 8 housing. I personally know several girls who got pregnant as teens on purpose so that they could get their benefits. If you know of some stats that have that I would love to see a link, but as far as I know all the stats only deal with teen pregnancy percentage, alone without the why.
