Teen Pregnancy

In 1993 roughly five percent of teen girls in Idaho gave birth. Even though Idaho's teen birth rate is one of the lowest in the country Governor's Cecil Andrus and Phil Batt have both taken up the cause and formed councils to try and make the rate even lower. Marcia Franklin talks with a member of Governor Batt's Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Council and two teen parents about the challenges facing teen parents and the specific goals of the council.
