|Title||Teenage fertility rates falling in South African|
Letter to the editor about decreasing rates of teenage fertility in South Africa.

The fixation on teenage pregnancy and the Child Support Grant offers an unnecessary and counterproductive diversion from the real issues surrounding teenage fertility and pregnancy. Becoming pregnant requires unprotected sex, meaning exposure to HIV and other STIs.
