    Default Question: Has Teen Pregnancy in the Developed World Dropped over the Years?



    This chart doesn't go back nearly far enough.

    That's true. I didn't give the webpage.

    I'm looking for a chart that goes back to the 1940s and 50s.

    I don't have anything on hand, but my recollection from some time ago was that, surprisingly, teen pregnancy rates are lower now than they've been in the history of their record.

    A popular notion that we have a teen pregnancy problem seems to be a result of increased awareness rather than increased rates.

    All birthrates are down worldwide, I believe.

    And in the developed world it's no longer the norm for women to marry in their late teens.

    Those factors alone would indicate to me that teen births are going down.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    also easier access to contraceptives and the fact that it seems to me that as time goes on more and more people are willing to have protected sex when not married
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    How shocking! In the good old days, teen pregnancy was way more common before people started listening to devil music.

    Wait, I'm actually not surprised at all.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    That was during the baby boom, I think. I wonder what percentage teen births were of overall births and how many of those teens were married eighteen and nineteen year olds. It occurs to me because my in-laws, my brother, and my sister-in-law were all married with children by the age of twenty. None of them got married because they were pregnant.

    Well, that and the fact that the rate is far higher in the USA than in the rest of the developed world

    That would require Americans to base their perception on any knowledge of what's going on anywhere else in there world.
