Researchers have found that women who get pregnant during their teenage years are more likely to fall victim to poverty, have poorer mental health and have higher rates of substance use.

The majority, 70 per cent, of teenage pregnancies in this country are unintended," said reseacher Jamie Seabrook, Associate Professor at Brescia University College in Canada.
