Teen pregnancy rate on the rise

January 26, 2010 9:30:38 AM PST
The US teen pregnancy rate is up for the first time in more than a decade. A report by the Guttmacher Institute shows the rate was up 3 percent in 2006.

There was also a 4 percent rise in the rate of births and a one percent rise in the rate of abortions.

Analysts are not sure yet if the rising rates signal a longer upward trend.
