Good news for mothers

As a mother, I like the following report:

"Fewer teens are engaging in sexual activity than in the past, and those that do are more likely to use contraceptives, the government said Friday. The National Center for Health Statistics said that for girls aged 15 to 17 the percentage who had ever had intercourse declined from 38 percent in 1995 to 30 percent in 2002. For boys, the agency said, the decline was 43 percent to 31 percent."
