    I found this earlier today:

    The AGI analysis concluded that approximately one-quarter of the decline in teenage pregnancy in the United States between 1988 and 1995 was due to increased abstinence. (The proportion of all teenagers who had ever had sex decreased slightly, but nonsignificantly, during this period, from 53% to 51%.) Approximately three-quarters of the drop resulted from changes in the behavior of sexually experienced teens. (The pregnancy rate among this group had fallen 7%, from 211 per 1,000 to 197.)

    How does what I am stating equate to being scared of being honest with my kids?

I've shared with her the risks, issues, and other problems with having sex in high school (i.e., expect any guy you have sex with to immediately tell all of his friends). But, I don't see sex as evil, so I don't particularly expect her to wait until marriage. Nor do I see "abstinence only" messages as particularly realistic or in-touch with the average teenager's mentality.
    This is great stuff; but again it begs the question how this relates to you inferring that I claim that "sex is not okay" or that I am "really scared of being honest with my kids?"

    As a parent, we all start out with; sex should only be done when we are adults and preferably with someone you will spend the rest of your life with in a committed relationship do we not?

Even though teen childbearing overall has declined steeply over the last half-century, the proportion of all teen births that are nonmarital has increased equally dramatically, from 13% in 1950 to 79% in 2000 (see chart). Two factors are at play. The first is that marriage in the teen years, which was not uncommon in the 1950s, has by now become quite rare. (By the mid-1990s, the typical age of first marriage in the United States had risen to just over 25 for women and 27 for men.) The second is that this trend has extended to pregnant teens as well: In contrast to the days of the "shotgun marriage," very few teens who become pregnant nowadays marry before their baby is born.

    Four out of every five babies born at Parkland Hospital in Dallas do not have a father listed on the birth certificate.

    The problem is far more involved than just when people get married.

    I would like to know the educational levels of these women. And that still doesn't change that the trend seems to be fewer teens getting pregnant.

    THAT is a sad story.

    It begs for more information now; did you ever get to meet your mom? Did you resent her? If when you found her, have you reconciled your issues with her giving you up and did she try to explain the reasons for what she did?

    Did I forget to thank you? Silly me, consider yourself thanked.
