Margaret Hudson Program Case for Support
The statistics below illustrate the impact of teen
pregnancy on our community.
- Approximately 1,200 girls ages 15-19 become pregnant every year in Tulsa County.
- Despite recent nationwide trends of reduced numbers in teen pregnancy, Oklahoma has risen to 5th in the nation for high teen pregnancy rates.
- According the CDC’s 2010 report on teen pregnancy, the national averages indicate that only about 50% of teen mothers receive a high school diploma by 22 years of age, versus approximately 90% of women who had not given birth during adolescence.
- Evidence shows that the children of teenage mothers are more likely to have lower school achievement and drop out of high school, have more health problems, suffer from child abuse, be incarcerated at some time during adolescence, give birth as a teenager, and face unemployment as a young adult.
- National data reflects that 25% of teen mothers will give birth to a second child during their school age years, making high school completion even less likely.
