Breaking the Cycle of Teen Pregnancy in West Virginia
April 4th, Opening Keynote Speaker: The National Campaign
The National Campaign's mission is to improve the lives and future prospects of children and families and, in particular, to help ensure that children are born into stable, two-parent families who are committed to and ready for the demanding task of raising the next generation.
Their strategy is to prevent teen pregnancy and unplanned pregnancy, especially among single, young adults.
They support a combination of responsible behavior by both men and women and responsible policies in both the public and private sectors.
When they are successful, child and family wellbeing will improve. There will be less poverty, more opportunities for young men and women to complete their education or achieve other life goals, fewer abortions, and a stronger nation.
