    My argument is with your inability/unwillingness to critically consider what it is you are reading.

    The most recent data shows a rise in teen pregnancy rates.

    I did not make that up.

      The US teen birth rate fell by more than one-third from 1991 through 2005, but then increased by 5 percent over two consecutive years.

The U.S. teen pregnancy and birth, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and abortion rates are substantially higher than those of other western industrialized nations.3
