On July 1, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that funding for teen pregancy-prevention programs would end two years early. The 81 affected organizations provide reproductive health education to thousands of American teens.

Drs. Anne-Marie E. Amies Oelschlager and Cora Collette Breuner are authors.
