Teen Births Continue to Decline in US

Teen births are continuing to decline in the United States, with a  promising 9 percent drop from 2013 to 2014, according to a new study  published in the journal Pediatrics. Births to teens (ages 15 to  19) fell to a historic low of 24 births per 1,000 women that year. Dr.  Paul Jarris, chief medical officer at the March of Dimes, suggests that  the decline in teen births can be attributed to the fact being pregnant  has become less acceptable among adolescents. They also have more access  to birth control.
