–Teen Pregnancy–

The topic i have chosen is teen pregnancy and I have researched about the Disparities in teen birth rates. With this being said Teen birth rates declined for all races and for Hispanics in 2013 from 2012. Among 15–19 year olds, from 2012–2013 teen birth rates decreased 9% for non-Hispanic whites, 11% for non-Hispanic blacks and American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/AN), and 10% for Asian/Pacific Islanders and Hispanics.Despite these declines, substantial disparities persist in teen birth rates, and teen pregnancy and childbearing continue to carry significant social and economic costs. Now that there are so many little girl or teens getting pregnant it is costing our world huge financial problems for being hospitalized. One thing that also came to my concern is if I they get kicked out of there homes where will they live from there? There are several homes for them but what about after that? So many questions that I will try to get answered…
