More than 1 million teenage girls in the United States become
pregnant each year; nearly half give birth. Why do these young
people, who are hardly more than children themselves, become
parents? This volume reviews in detail the trends in and
consequences of teenage sexual behavior and offers thoughtful
insights on the issues of sexual initiation, contraception,
pregnancy, abortion, adoption, and the well-being of adolescent
families. It provides a systematic assessment of the impact of
various programmatic approaches, both preventive and ameliorative,
in light of the growing scientific understanding of the topic.
