Teen pregnancy rate at historic low- WOOT!

Oct 16, 2013 Full story: 14

The 2012 teen pregnancy rate was 39.6 per 1,000 15-19 year old girls. In other words, fewer than 4 percent of 15-19 year old girls in North Carolina experienced a pregnancy last year.

McDowell County’s teen pregnancy rate was above the state average at 47.2 percent, but the good news is that the 2012 rate was 14.5 percent lower than in 2011.

There were 60 pregnancies in 2012 among McDowell County girls 15-19 years of age. McDowell ranks 35th out of 100 counties in teen pregnancy rates, according to the North Carolina Center for Heath statistics.

Nationwide, researchers have attributed teen pregnancy declines to increased use of birth control, the availability of more effective birth control methods like IUDs and the Implant, and a slight increase in the average age when teens first engage in sexual intercourse.

I have found through my extensive studies that STD'S are the reason girls aren't getting knocked up. Exposure is the same. Dr. Butternut.

Libturd? Wow, you really need some new material. Then again you worship dumbasses like the plagiarism king Rand Paul. Plus morons like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin who have to be two of the dumbest people on the planet. Saw your little pointy nosed clown on late night show I'm glad he's well on his way to destroying the Republican Party. Sarah Palin well .... she's just a trip it's like icing on the cake. You stupid hillbilly. Just slap a bow on that present. Get ready to lose again. You idiots are your own worst enemy.

What does this have to do with teen pregnancy? This county's slightly decreased teen pregnancy is the pure result of the effects of no community effort. Its a study of the pure momentum of the changes going on with teens getting great information about SEX and STDs and BIRTH CONTROL in all the teeny magazines and on the tube. No one needs to be congratulated about the decrease in teen pregnancy other than teens.

You might want to do some fact checking about the other stuff and post on another thread.

No McDowell County is truly a cesspool. With all the dopey, smelly, constant look of stupidity, unintelligent white dumb dumbs running around popping out baby after baby. Filling up the ugly eye sore trailer parks that can't even speak English( really sometimes I just don't get it I don't speak mountainese) that have bratty , sweaty kids that are rude with no manners. You want to talk about Atlanta? Look around dumbass. Stupid ass embarrassing white people and I am white but fortunately wasn't raised in trailer park and was raised to have manners too. Sick to death of you racist idiots. You are superior ??? Ha ha good one !! Go back to your trailer and fry something.

Oh yes, Mr. or Mrs. Sanctimonious, I bow at your intellectual feet. If you think the trailer parks are eye sores here, you have definitely NOT been to Atlanta. They certainly have their nice, cookie cutter gated communities, et al.....but if you were to deviate at all from the direct downtown & aristocrat want to be areas - you will find more slums than would fit in this entire county. With that being said, I am by no means a sophist for McDowell.
While you are at it, pat yourself on the back for being such a demonstrably superior mental abilities. Bow down before thee, oh mighty logician of Topix Marion.

Have you people not heard that homo's don't have babies? Between STD's and homosexuality the birth rate will soon drop to zero.
