Teenage Pregnancies

 in the Philippines

The Philippines has the second highest rate in Southeast Asia of teenage pregnancies. One in ten young Filipino women age 15-19 has begun childbearing: 8 percent are already mothers and another 2 percent are pregnant with their first child.

 

Sexual education is almost non-existent and abortion is illegal.

 

With the current lockdown situation, cases might go up even more.
