The United States has some of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the industrialized world. Teen pregnancy has a tremendous impact on the health and wellbeing of young women, their families, and their communities. SIECUS believes that young people should have access to the information, skills, and services they need to prevent unintended pregnancy. SIECUS creates resources about teen pregnancy and teen pregnancy prevention to help parents, educators, and policymakers understand this important issue.
