Teenage Pregnancy
Advocacy Letter

The Honorable
United States Representative
Dear Representative (name): TEENAGE PREGNANCY
Teenage pregnancy is a real issue in our country. The social problem affects the pregnant
teenagers, the guardians/parents and the society at large. The letter seeks to urge you to support
more funding for the H.R.3602 — 115th Congress (2017-2018) bill. We are losing many young
lives as a result of teenage pregnancies. The teenagers end up indulging in unethical behavior
due to lack of proper support.
The teenage pregnancy results in lack of sufficient knowledge on sex education.
Therefore, the young adults are not to blame because they depend on constant support from
adults to make right decisions. However, the limited resources hinder proper implementation of
the bill.
The legislation will have a positive impact in reducing the teenage pregnancy statistics.
The decrease of adolescent pregnancy will lead to the proper performance of the teenagers in
school. Besides, the number of dropouts will reduce hence the overall economic growth of our
country.
Sincerely,
(Name)
