The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the rate of teenage births reached a record low in 2022. This is attributed to increased access to and use of contraception, coupled with educational programs and improved economic opportunities for young people. Despite the decline, the United States still has a higher rate of teen pregnancy compared to other developed countries. It is important to continue educating teenagers and providing access to reproductive healthcare to further reduce the rate of teen pregnancy.
