Teen Pregnancy Mississippi


FILE-In this June 27, 2013 file photograph, Rep. Adrienne Wooten, D-Jackson addresses the House chamber during debate over a Medicaid reauthorization bill at the Capitol in Jackson, Miss. Wooten voted against a cord blood bill that says if a girl younger than 16 gives birth in Mississippi and won’t name the father authorities must collect umbilical cord blood and run DNA tests to prove paternity. The attorney lawmaker says it will mostly hurt poor women and could lead to prosecutors “doing a fishing expedition to find out who the father is.” (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)
