Emma the Embryo on teen pregnancy


.
A new study published by Reproductive Health found that US states with higher religiousity also have higher teen birth rates. The study hypothesizes that this correlation may be because "teens in more religious communities may be less likely to use contraception."
.
According to Ms Mag today - and Dammit Janet a week ago - the study author ... speculated that a potential explanation of this relationship is that "religious communities in the U.S. are more successful in discouraging the use of contraception among their teenagers than they are in discouraging sexual intercourse itself."
.
But then you knew that.
.
40 days of Harrassment begins today, that special time of year when the god botherers focus their bothering on women who want birth control or sex education because their sky monster needs more teen moms.
