National Leaders Examine Sex and Responsibility in New Book
Date:7/22/2009

cing the nation's high rates of teen and unplanned pregnancy," said Sarah Brown, CEO of The National Campaign. "In a modest way, we hope this collection of thought-provoking essays will help foster a national discussion about what personal responsibility means in the context of pregnancy planning and prevention."

At present, half of all pregnancies in the United States are unplanned. Among single women in their 20s, seven in ten pregnancies are described by women themselves as unplanned. Progress in reducing unplanned pregnancy among women of all ages has essentially halted and--although teen pregnancy and birth rates have declined dramatically since the early 1990s--the teen birth rate increased 5% between 2005 and 2007, the first increase after 14 straight years of declines.

Of course, the concept of personal responsibility, and even the term itself, means different things to different people. The essays in the Rethinking Responsibility volume explore such topics as:

  • How personal responsibility is expressed in the context of pregnancy planning and whether men and women both share the same level of responsibility;
  • How personal responsibility is taught and who should teach it;
  • The connection--and disconnection--between personal and social responsibility;
  • Non-marital childbearing; and
  • Whether the United States is in need of a "second sexual revolution."
