             I. Introduction and Problem of Teen Pregnancy.
             Adolescents face a wide range of issues everyday relating to their physiological, emotional, cultural, and psychological concerns. One of the most important and complicated issues is teenage pregnancy and childbearing. Adolescent pregnancy has long been a societal concern, but in the past decade, this issue has become one of the most frequently cited examples of the perceived societal decay in the United States. .
             Despite the recent decline in the teen birth rates, teen pregnancy remains a significant problem in this country. It is a problem that impacts nearly every community. Therefore, the responsibility to solve this problem lies with all of us, including families, communities, and young people themselves. .
             Approximately 1 million teenagers become pregnant in the United States each year; most of these pregnancies are among older teenagers, ie, those 18 or 19 years old. Approximately 51% of teenage pregnancies end in live births, 35% end in induced abortion, and 14% result in a miscarriage or stillbirth. Historically, the highest teenage birth rates in the United States were during the 1950s and 1960s before the legalization of abortion and the development of many forms of contraception.
