Internet Blamed in Teen Pregnancy Rise
BEIJING - Nearly half of the pregnant teens in China's financial hub, Shanghai, met their partners on the Internet, state media said on Tuesday.
Zhang Zhengrong, a doctor who oversees the city's first-aid hotline for pregnant teens, said 46 percent of the more than 20,000 teenage girls who called the hotline over the past two years said they had had sex with boys they met on the Internet.
Zhang blamed the situation on adult Web sites, videos and books and appealed to parents, teachers and society at large to pay more attention to sex education.
Chinese attitudes towards sex have relaxed in recent decades, triggering a boom in extramarital relationships which the ruling Communist Party blames on bourgeois mores imported from the West.
Sounds like they are blaming our relaxed sense of morality or ideas of morality on their problem. That's sick. Blame your country's leader on your country's problems and we'll do the same here.

Teenage pregancy is a issue everywhere no matter what country you are in.
