Attention Filipino-American Dads: 1 in Every 10 Filipino Women Age 15 to 19 is Already a Mother or is Pregnant
Pay attention Filipino-American dads. Results of a government survey one in every 10 Filipino women age 15 to 19 is already a mother or is pregnant with her first child.
The survey shows teen pregnancies are more common in poorer households and in women who only graduated elementary school.
Early childbearing is also more common in Cagayan Valley compared to other regions in the country.
Results of the survey also reveal one in every five Filipino women age 18 to 24 admitted to having sex before they reached 18.
Very sad news. It's a good reminder for us Filipino-American dads and are members of the "body of Christ" that we must lead the way in influencing Filipino youth (around the world) that childbearing belongs in the context of committed marriage. Where God meant it to be.
