Is 16 and Pregnant Behind Drop in Teen Births?

A recent study believes that the MTV show 16 and Pregnant may have a hand in why teen pregnancy rates have dropped over the years. Researchers claim that after the show debuted in 2009, teen rates dropped 5.7 percent. They also noticed a huge uptick in teens’ tweets during the show that talked about the importance of safe sex and using birth control, NPR writes.
