Chicago PSA features Pregnant Teen Boys

Although Chicago still has one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in the country, a recent 33% decline won’t stop health officials from pushing the need for healthy sex education for youngsters.


A recent ad campaign took the shock route by photoshopping pregnant teenage boys into transit ads and posters at shelters throughout certain parts of the city. The idea was to show teen boys that they are just as responsible for teen pregnancy as young women.

The Department of Public Health and, who funded the campaign, hope that this will keep unwanted teenage pregnancy on the decline, and encourage the use of condoms and other forms of contraception.
