Trump administration cuts $213 million for teen pregnancy prevention programs

Donald Trump Trump administration cuts $213 million for teen pregnancy prevention programs

And yet the Trump administration made a decision to pull $213.6 million in funding for teen pregnancy prevention programs.

But this week, the federal Office of Adolescent Health sent letters to those 81 organizations informing them that their funding would end in 2018 - two years early.

Those letters, which looked like routine annual grant renewal letters, said funding for the projects would end in 2018, not 2020 as originally planned. But yes, it's cutting the $213.6 million to help teens that's really going to save the country from debt. By 2014, the birth rate for teenagers between 15 and 17 was down 72% since 1991.

Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACIA) Coverage Initiated at DA Davidson
Also, VP Mehrdad Givehchi sold 25,830 shares of the business's stock in a transaction that occurred on Monday, May 1st. Deane Retirement Strategies Inc. raised its position in shares of Acacia Communications by 6.9% in the second quarter.

Ending the program early will mean the effort to figure out the best way to stop Chicago Public Schools students from experiencing an unwanted pregnancy, contracting a sexually transmitted infection or engaging in risky sexual behavior will end, and the work already completed will be useless for scientific study, officials said.

Numerous teen pregnancy grants set to end early target those groups. Cut services include education for indigenous teens, guidance for foster care kids, STI testing, and workshops for parents and children to communicate.

The head of Health and Human Services, Tom Price, has been a vocal pro-abstinence, anti-birth control advocate, while the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress have shown in policy and healthcare replacement drafts that they are against funding women's healthcare.

Jennifer Hettema, an associate research professor at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, described the cuts to Reveal as "kind of like building half a skyscraper and then saying, 'Never mind.'" Hettema is leading a program researching effective ways of bridging communication about preventing teen pregnancy between doctors and Latino and Native American teens, both groups which the CDC reports have higher teen birth rates than non-Hispanic white teens (more than two times higher for Hispanic teens and more than one and a half times higher for American Indian/Alaska Native teens).

Reveal News reports that a decision from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will end five-year grants awarded by the Obama administration that were given to programs created to help teenagers make healthy decisions around sex.
