South Carolina's teen pregnancy rate is among the highest in the country, reversing a trend where we saw the number declining. Most of the programs in the state teach abstinence. Some argue the increased number clearly show that message is not working. This week on OnPoint! - what is behind the increasing numbers. And after a girl finds that she is pregnant and has her baby, why are there such limited community resources to encourage her future success. As a community, do we just prefer to turn a blind eye to the problem and act as if it does not exist?
