Ending Government Programs Decrease Teen Pregnancy & Abortion

Bradley Mattes   |   June 28, 2017

Many people believe it’s common sense. Government programs offering birth control and sex education to teens cause  increased sexual activity and more teen pregnancies and abortions.  A study published in the Journal of Health Economics proves they’re right.  Great Britain had twice as many teen pregnancies as other European nations, so they launched a government program promoting sex-ed and birth control.  Teen pregnancy rates didn’t drop.  Recent financial cutbacks resulted in some communities ending this program, so researchers compared them with others that continued the programs.  Those that ended them saw a statistically significant reduction in teen pregnancy and abortion rates.  Of course, you’re not hearing about this in the media, but I thought you’d like to know.
