Babies Having Babies

While most teens mothers are older than 17, stats show that younger teens having sex and babies are on the rise. It’s estimated that 25 percent of teen mothers give birth between the ages of 15 and 17 — barely out of high school. Also, 27 percent of teens who are 15-17 have had sex in the past, while 8 percent are currently sexually active.
