Most Don’t Know Teen Pregnancies Down 42 Percent From 1990 Figures

Thanks to the work of abstinence education campaigns, teen pregnancies are down 42 percent from 1990. However, a new study indicates most Americans have no idea so much progress has been made.

As the Washington Post reports:

In a new survey from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy,  50 percent thought the teen pregnancy rate had gone up over that period.   Eighteen percent correctly answered that it has declined.

Young Americans were, perhaps surprisingly, the most likely to to believe the teen pregnancy rate had risen; 68 percent of those surveyed between 18 and 34 years old agreed with this.

CDC data, meanwhile, show that the teen birth rate has fallen to its lowest level since the 1940s. Researchers did see a small uptick in 2006 and 2007, but have seen rates falling steadily since then.

But Rita Diller of the STOPP Planned Parenthood project says the Planned Parenthood abortion business is working hard to push sex on teens, because it primes the pump for its abortion industry.

While most Americans associate Planned Parenthood with abortion, this organization is also in the business of promoting a deviate and dangerous sexual agenda that in the long run will benefit the abortion giant’s bottom line, while creating a destructive and broken society for the rest of us.

Planned Parenthood has proven that it is a sex business that self-perpetuates itself by first developing obscene sex education materials that promote indiscriminate and risky sexual behavior to our youth through America’s public schools, families and community organizations.



The second step kicks in once the organization has created an environment of sexual risk-taking behavior among youth. It then markets and promotes contraceptive products and programs that have proven to be ineffective in preventing unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

Once the ineffective contraceptives fail, Planned Parenthood completes the cycle selling abortions to the teens it has sucked into its deadly cyclone. Tax-paying Americans who work diligently to contribute to strengthening our country are unwittingly funding the absolutely pornographic and child sexual abuse agenda that Planned Parenthood pushes on our society.
