GOOD NEWS: Teen births in the US is on the decline; local programs, contraceptives credited for the decline. BAD NEWS for Republican candidates and religious right groups who have vowed to cut personal responsibility educations programs, (sex education) and want to ban the use of contraceptives, Rick Santorum.
Between 2007 and 2009, DE saw a 14.2 percent decrease in the number of births to girls between ages 15 and 19. The DE Health Statistics Center reported that teen births accounted for 9.3 percent of all babies born to state residents in 2009.
My guess is more people are using birth control methods, or they are drinking the same water Rush Limbaugh uses; he is childless after 4 marriages, or putting an aspirin between a females legs as he suggested also works.
