I am doing a summer project and that askes me to name a nationa issue.  I was thinking about going on the lines of " Teenage Pregnancies" but didn't know if that was a national issue. I would like to know how it effects america as a whole.

It is absolutely an important national issue. Two of the biggest statistical links to poverty are lack of high school education (which can be due to teenage pregnancy) and one parent households.  It also have strong links to other very important national issues such as the pro-life and pro-choice debate, education and the deterioration of the family.  I am sure you could find a good amount of research to tie all of this together.

I agree. This is a national issue that maybe ignored are not taking as seriously because the impacts lag behind.  Statistics show that those born into a single parent family and especially to a teenager have an uphill battle to climb out of poverty.

I'd write the paper.  Come back and share your findings here as well.

Yes, agreed. Please share your paper or a summary. I would be interested in reviewing it.
