What Teens Say "Teens think they will never get pregnant because they are young and nothing bad will ever happen to them. The rate can be decreased if they are taught that this isn't true. Education is the only way to stop ignorance." — Sandy, 17

What Teens Say "Teens get pregnant because schools aren't teaching us everything we need to know about not getting pregnant. In some places, kids just learn that they shouldn't have sex, but don't get told what to do to be safe if they do have sex. Condoms should be made available for teens everywhere — at school, at home, and at the doctor's." — Serenity, 18

It is no coincidence that our state denies teens information about birth control and has the highest teen birth rate in the nation.” Dr. Herbert Brown

HPV: The Facts In June 2006, the FDA approved the vaccine Gardasil as safe and effective for use among girls and women aged 9-26. The vaccine prevents infection with the types of HPV most likely to lead to cervical cancer. Men can also be affected by HPV; Gardasil is being considered for boys as well as girls, primarily to prevent transmission
