Description:Adolescent pregnancy is a persistent health and social problem in Utah which has serious consequences for individuals and the community. Pregnancy during the teen years poses health problems for the mothers and their infants. Teen pregnancy increases a family's chances of living in poverty (especially compared with married adults who start families after age 20), and results in high social costs for health care and public assistance. Teen pregnancy may result in: induced abortions, inadequate prenatal care, repeat births before age 20, proportionally higher rates of low birth weight infants and infant mortality, subsequent infant illnesses and/or disabilities, low educational attainment and low marriage rates.
