Supporting Teen Parents
KUNM Call In Show 10/1 8a:
Teen pregnancy rates have gone down across the country in recent years, but New Mexico continues to have one of the highest teen birth rates in the nation.
Do young people in our state have enough resources and information to plan and prevent unwanted pregnancies? Or should communities offer more support to all families, including teen parents?
This week on the KUNM Call In show we’ll talk about the challenges that teen parents face day to day.
