A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO DECLARE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1991, AS "TEENAGE PREGNANCY PREVENTION AWARENESS DAY".

Whereas, teenage pregnancy has significant consequences on the health, economic, and educational future for teenagers and the people of South Carolina; and

Whereas, teenage parents often are unable to complete their education, which leads to unemployment, underemployment, and dependence on public welfare; and

Whereas, the cycle of poverty can be perpetuated from generation to generation; and

Whereas, the major responsibility of parenting alters a generation of young women and renders them the primary caretakers of families; and

Whereas, teenage mothers often seek late prenatal care, frequently suffering higher than average levels of toxemia, anemia, cervical trauma, premature delivery, and low birthweight babies; and

Whereas, the purpose of the South Carolina Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Local Councils is to advocate and support programs and strategies that prevent teenage pregnancy and decrease the problems associated with teenage pregnancy in South Carolina. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly declare Wednesday, February 13, 1991, as "Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Awareness Day".

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Joy Perry, Chairman, Public Affairs Committee, Greater Columbia Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Council.
