Teen Pregnancies On Decrease In Minnesota

Some good news from a just-released report from Teenwise Minnesota.

It shows teen pregnancies and birth rates in the state have fallen to historic lows.

Director Jill Farris says the rates have been dropping steadily since the 1990's.

Farris attributes the declines to more young people using effective contraception and using it regularly and more teens waiting longer to become sexually active.
