Eight hundred-twenty thousand teen girls get pregnant each year in the US

Public costs from teenage childbearing totaled $120 billion from 1985 to 1990

The U.S. teen pregnancy and birth rates are nearly double

Canada's and more than eight times those of Japan.

Low birth weight babies may have organs that are not fully developed.

Some states have rates almost three times higher than those of the states with the lowest rates.

Pressure from their partners is one of the main reasons teens fail to use birth control.

About 11 percent of all U.S. births in 2002 were to teens aged 15 to 19.

About 860,000 teenagers become pregnant each year and about 425,000 give birth.

The majority of teen pregnancies are not planned.
