Not in edogworld.L3 There are people out there who think that way. It is best we know about them even if other large groups disagree..
After the 08 election, someone did a survey/statistical analysis that compared states which were considered red, i.e. conservative vs blue states and compared the number of teenaged births and single mother births. Red states, particularly evangelical groups had significantly higher unmarried births.
It really doesn't matter if it's dropping or not. Actually the rates have been stagnant in the past few years. What matters is it is still too high.
"According to Abma, the country with the next highest teen birth rate is the United Kingdom–and our rate is 1 1/2 times higher, and the gap keeps growing after that. In Canada the teen birth rate is 13 per 1,000. Here, it's 43 per 1,000."
