Teen pregnancy and teen childbearing affect several critical social issues, including poverty and income disparity, overall child well-being, child welfare, out-of-wedlock births, healthy relationships and marriage, responsible fatherhood, health issues, education, substance use and other risky behaviors, and violence.
The Alabama Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy recognizes the complexities of these social and economic issues and believes teen pregnancy prevention requires the thoughtful attention and deliberate action of parents, youth, community leaders, faith leaders, educators, policy-makers, health professionals, and others who have a desire to ensure Alabama’s youth live healthy, fulfilling lives.
