Teenage pregnancy epidemic 'a myth'

Reply Tue 30 Sep, 2008 03:54 am
Around 95 per cent of Britons believe that the country is in the grip of a teen pregnancy epidemic, a myth that ministers and health agencies have warned is 'normalising' pregnancy amongst under 16's and pushing up teenage pregnancy rates, according to the Independent.

An Ipsos MORI poll found that almost a quarter of 15-24 years olds believe four out of 10 under-16's fall pregnant each year in the UK: the real figure is less than 1 per cent.
