Study: Unplanned Pregnancies and Abortions Way Down Among Teens

There are fewer teen pregnancies and abortions than ever before says new data from the Guttmacher Institute. Researchers found this to be true despite numbers indicating that teens 18-19 are having more sex, The Atlantic writes. Yet, Black and Latino teens have the highest rates (51.4 percent) and (55.6 percent) compared to whites (23.6 percent).
