Teen pregnancy still a growing trend

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow

Out-of-wedlock births have reached a record high.

Bill Albert of the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy says roughly four out of ten births now occur outside of marriage. He believes the more it becomes normative behavior, the more teens will not see it as out of the ordinary. Plus, he points out that teens see other teenagers, relatives, and celebrities doing so, so they believe it is okay for them.
