-Voices InJustice with host Trish McKnight; Sept 13th @ 6pm eastern/5pm central/3pm pacific time. Join me for another great broadcast discussion brought to you by, Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery community outreach broadcast radio. Our call in number 929-477-3163, open chatroom & online discussion.
Over the last two decades teen pregnancy has declined greatly due to oral contraception and education, along with a more open dialogue with parents. However, there is still on average 26.5/per 1000. There is a huge variation in race, state of residence (with southern states being most prominent). If your teen had an early pregnancy do you know what services are available to help them? What about housing, income, education, and ability to provide a sustaining safe life for their children?
There are many issues surrounding Teen Pregnancy, and tonight we are talking about this still hot topic. If you are grandparents to an early teen pregnancy, if you're a friend to someone who had an early teen pregnancy, someone who has more than one child in their teen years; these are all topics open for our phone lines. We do hope you'll join this conversation. Do we discuss openly about contraception, the use of condoms for disease prevention, and the ongoing support needed for these children, as well as the education & steady work, rather than welfare. Do our teens really know what they're getting into with sexual relationships? Are they prepared for the consequences of their actions? Are you finding as grandparents you are providing key early support & assistance for these children? Do you have open dialogue about sex & protection with your children?
