The US Teen Birth Rate Dropped 61 Percent Since 1991

U.S. teen births just hit a record low: The teen birth rate has dropped 61 percent since 1991.

Every state saw a decline, though some — like Colorado, Massachusetts and Connecticut — dropped more dramatically than others.

Experts attribute the decrease to education and availability of contraceptives. (Video via Planned Parenthood)
