Dating violence teenage pregnancy

(National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010).Fact #10: More than 75% of female victims were raped or sexually assaulted before age 25.Considering that Monday and conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research, asserts that the popular show reduced teen births by nearly six percent just in 2010.But a different study conducted by researchers at Indiana University published Thursday found the opposite to be true: 16 and Pregnant and its spinoff show, , lead viewers to think that teen mothers have an enviable quality of life.
