More teenage girls are getting pregnant and seeking help. According to a counselor, there’s a 15 year old girl who approached her for help and when brought to gynecologist for fetal scan, she broke down and embraced the counselor. But, she still decided to go for an abortion.
Shin Min Daily News recently reported that a local 13 year old Chinese girl delivered a baby boy after tasting the forbidden fruit with her 15 year old boyfriend. The girl’s family has lost contact with her about a week.
2013 statistics show that there were 487 new mothers who were below 19 year old. This is much lower than the 731 in 2003. Although this is a 25 year record low, the issue of teenage pregnancy is still a worrying issue.
