Screwing America’s Young
Well, I know how to fix this.

About 1 in 4 teenage girls in the United States — and nearly half of black girls — has at least one sexually transmitted disease, according to a study released Tuesday, providing the first national snapshot of infection rates among this age group.
Those numbers translate into an estimated 3.2 million adolescent females infected with one of the four most common STDs — many of whom may not even know they have a disease or that they are passing it to their sex partners.
