Trump Administration Quietly Cuts $213 Million in Funds to Prevent Teen Pregnancy

Trump Administration Quietly Cuts $213 Million in Funds to Prevent Teen Pregnancy
By Katie Van Syckle July 16, 2017 7:34 pm

While the world was glued to Trumpís Russian soap opera, the administration quietly cut $213.6 million in funding to prevent teen pregnancy, according to Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting.

Currently, in the United States, one in four women will get pregnant by the age of 20. And although teen birth rates have declined over the last two decades, they remain high among poor and minority women.

The decision from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will now end a handful of Obama-era grants supporting research into scientifically sound ways to prevent teen pregnancy.
