Great news! Teen pregnancy rates have dropped. So, does this mean that young people are taking notice of the struggles MTV’s ‘Teen Mom’ stars face? Lets hope so! Of course, there is no solid proof that the popular series has anything to do with the declining rates. However, fans have spoken out that they are more aware of the hardships they would face if they were to become pregnant at a young age.
It also helps that ‘Teen Mom’ stars such as Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, Kailyn Lowry, and Chelsea Houska speak out on practicing safe sex and/or abstinence. The girls, especially Maci, have become a new generation of public speakers, and advocates, for the teen pregnancy epidemic. Whatever the reason, we love seeing those stats go down!
