United States has the highest rates of teen pregnancy
and births in the western industrialized world. Teen
pregnancy costs the United States at least $7 billion
annually. Teen mothers are less likely to complete
high school, (only one-third receive a high school
diploma) and more likely to end up on welfare (nearly
80 percent of unmarried teen mothers end up on welfare).
