Richard, Nice post. I just would like to add to the possible reasons for the decrease in adolescent pregnancies. Abstaining from sex is becoming more acceptable and contraceptives are more readliy available to adolescents. Another idea stems from what is seen on the television. The explicit shows and commercials allow for the opportunites for parents to talk more openly to their children about relationships and sex. Education begins at home. Role modeling and talking to adolescents is key to helping adolescents making the right choices.
