Teenage Pregnancy Rates

Britain has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Western Europe with over 8000 girls under the age of 16 getting pregnant in 2007, whereas Belgium and Sweden have a much lower rate of only 7 girls per 1000 teen girls, over 29 girls in the UK. In the U.S the CDC has recently done extensive research into teen pregnancy and reports that 1 in 3 american girls will get pregnant before 20th birthday. The 3 reasons they believe are due to family circumstance, for example, coming from a broken or single parent home, advertising on TV and a sexually explicit entertainment industry.
