Adults can help prevent teen pregnancy

The 10th annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy is May 4. This promotional campaign is designed to improve the lives and futures of children and families.

Lowering the teen pregnancy rate also means young men and women will have more opportunities to complete their education and achieve other life goals. It also may result in fewer abortions and a stronger nation.
