Massachusetts Teen Pregnancy Rates Hit A Low

16 and Pregnant
MTV

Massachusetts Teen pregnancy rates have dropped to their lowest numbers in more than two decades.

According to Boston.com Massachusetts has one of the lowest teen pregnancy rates at 37 per 1,000 teenage women. The Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy has announced a historic drop in state teen birth rates, the lowest in more than 20 years, dropping more than 50 percent from the peak in 1989.

Teen Pregnancy has hit historic low rates nationwide. The Guttmacher Institute released a report reviewing data from 2010 on Teen Pregnancy. The study showed that only 6 percent of teens became pregnant, the lowest rate in 30 years.

Some people attribute the dip in teen pregnancies to shows like MTV’s “16 and Pregnant,” but experts say that rates are down due to an increase in contraceptive use and overall access to health services.
