From the Introduction: "Teen pregnancy is a major public health issue because of its high cost for families of teenage parents and society more broadly. In addition, teen pregnancy disproportionately affects certain racial and ethnic groups and selected states and territories. The teen birth rate has been in decline; however, given the consequences associated with teen births, Congress and the executive branch continue to support programs that focus on delaying sexual activity and preventing pregnancies among teenagers. [...] This report provides background on the role of Congress and the executive branch in preventing teen pregnancy."
