Some Sobering News about Teen Pregnancy/Abortion

According to this article from the USA Today, it appears that we experienced a very large increase in teen pregnancy and abortion last year. In recent years, the percentage of teens who became pregnant has been around 3%. However, last year saw 7% of teens becoming pregnant. Now, that might seem like a small number, but it is not! Nor is the increase. That is a BIG jump! So, what should our response be? We can discuss that, but the incredible rise demands that we address it. At the very least we have to be willing to get over our awkwardness and be willing to start talking about it. The article is linked below…

I Married my bride, Erin, in 2003. We have 3 children: Emma, Elijah, and Lydia. I have served full-time on staff at Westwood Baptist Church, in Roxboro, NC, since summer of 2006 as Pastor of Students & Discipleship. I am currently enrolled at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing my Doctorate of Education. I also began as a Teaching Fellow and Adjunct Professor at the College at Southeastern in the Fall of 2018.
