Teenage Pregnancy website, “Oops, I Knocked up my Girlfriend”, begins a sweepstakes today to give away a one year supply of condoms to increase teen contraceptive usage awareness and reduce the number of unwanted teenage pregnancies.
A new Center for Disease Control (CDC) study released in January suggests that as many as one third of teenage mothers didn’t use any form of birth control because they didn’t believe they could get pregnant. The other shocking finding was that nearly one quarter of the teen moms said they did not use any contraception because their partner did not want them to.
In light of this new data, Oops, I Knocked up my Girlfriend has decided to start a grassroots campaign and sweepstakes in partnership with //www.WowCondoms.com”>http://www.WowCondoms.com to promote teen contraceptive usage and knowledge about sexually transmitted infections, diseases and teen pregnancy issues.
“It’s ridiculous how misinformed teens and young adults are when it comes to contraceptive use and pregnancy issues. Abstinence-only sex education only focuses on not having sex and not the genuine issues, like your real-life chances of having a kid or contracting a disease if you don’t use a condom,” states Chris Piper, creator of the Oops, I Knocked up my Girlfriend website. “We all know teens are going to have sex, so why can’t we teach our youth to use contraceptives correctly and consistently?”
The sweepstakes is open on the Oops, I Knocked up my Girlfriend official Facebook Fan Page at https://www.facebook.com/pregogrilfriend starting February 1 through March 31, 2012. The sweepstakes will award one winner per month a 100 pack of condoms courtesy of WowCondoms.com in hopes that teens will realize the importance of enjoying safe sex to reduce the number of sexually transmitted infections and unwanted teen pregnancies.
Oops, I Knocked up my Girlfriend is committed to providing teens no fluff information on teenage pregnancy issues and becoming the primary resource for teenagers who are faced with the unexpected decision to become a teen parent.
