Religiosity and teenage pregnancy rates... why?

Religiosity and teen birth rate in the United States

I commented on this at Subrealism and wanted to edit and share more widely...

I would call it child abuse. They would do as genetically programmed beings and explore the world, and, as teenagers, live riskily.

Then, these half-born humans mold the newly emergent beings into the same deformed, crippled creatures that they are.
