Teen pregnancies, births, and abortions have seen decline

According to new data reports, teen pregnancy, birth and abortion rates have recently dropped to a historic low. One of the reasons as to why the rates are so low are because teens are using birth control more often and are waiting longer to have intercourse.

Another report shows that millennials are engaging in sexual activity less than their parents are, citing 41 percent of individuals born in the 1990s are sexually inactive. This abstinence and celibacy could be a factor in the decline of unwanted pregnancies, along with the education of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
