A new report from Data Driven Detroit reveals that in spite of the many families with kids that left Detroit between 2000 and 2010 — much of the city’s population still consists of children living in poverty.

When we read that teen pregancy is down in Detroit, does that mean the number of teens giving birth is down? The abortion rate could be up, and that’s an important stat to know as well. Is Planned Parenthood doing its eugenics job in Detroit or are girls truly not getting pregnant as much?
