Not only does Nevada have the marked cornered on Home Foclosures, they have the worst Teen Pregnancy Rate from across the nation. The stats: for every 1,000 girls, 113 of them are pregnant.
Here is an snipet from “Channel 8, Las Vegas Now”
The non-profit agencies that counsel teenagers say the lack of education and the economy are to blame for the increase.
“Pam Caylor runs the privately funded non-profit and partly blames the economy for the teenage pregnancy problem in Nevada. “With hard times, people are not going out as much. They are choosing other ways of entertainment, to be honest,” she said.
Both Caylor and Magnus agree that parents also must become involved to talk to their children before they are placed in a situation where they could end up pregnant.”
Forclosures, Gangs, and now Pregnancy… I hope LV can get a grip on their city.
