Marital Education in Texas

Marital Education in Texas: Introduction

The United States has the highest rate of teen pregnancy in the developed world, and Texas is fifth highest in the 50 states. That’s not surprising, given that 25% of Texas school districts don’t teach sex education and almost 60% teach abstinence-only.

The figure shows the 2012 birth rates in the various states. As you can see, Texas sits right in the middle of a hot-bed of teen pregnancy and births, along with New Mexico, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kentucky and West Virginia.

It’s not just teens having accidental pregnancies either. In Texas, more than half of all pregnancies (54%) are accidental.
