Teen Pregnancy on the Rise - Part 1
(2008-06-11)
(wfcr) - More teenagers in Holyoke and Springfield get pregnant than in any other town or city in Massachusetts. The teen birth rates in those urban areas had been going down over the past few years, but as of February, they're back at number one and two in the state. Latina women make up a disproportionate number of teen mothers. In the first of a three-part series, WFCR's Karen Brown talks to some frontline providers about why so many young people in our region are having babies. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
