What I am assuming is that if teenagers get an STD they won't get tested or get treatment because they won't want to get in trouble with their parents. That will spread STD more rapidly and they will get more sick from the STDs they are carrying.
I will try and find something specific to NC but in general I can tell you that cases of STDs are rising across the country and that NC is amongst the worst in the nation in diagnosed STDs.
The prevalent demographics is that general African Americans have the highest rate of STDs and generally the poor have the highest rate of STDs and most STDs occur in people between the ages of 15-24
My issue is that this bill will make those numbers worse and not better in my opinion.
so its going up with the current system/rules/laws in place. thats precisely what i mean.
now this needs to be drilled down to even further to find the truly best method to offset the rise. makine parents have to show up with their kids? meh, maybe.
good work teeray.
