Arizona Teen Pregnancy Rates Among the Highest in the Nation

Arizona Mobile DNA Services provides paternity testing services to help Arizona teens determine paternity through DNA testing.
Aug. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- Several years ago the Guttmacher Institute compiled a list of state teen pregnancy rates and ranked Arizona second, only behind Nevada in the number of pregnancies by women 15 to 19 years of age.  The Tucson Citizen reported in an article in May that, “Arizona consistently ranks as a state with one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the nation…”

The most recent statistics from the Arizona Department of Health Services website shows that in 2008 14,047 females under the age of 20 became pregnant and 230 of those were to girls under the age of 15.  

Having a child at any age is an enormous undertaking and one of the greatest responsibilities people ever face.  From providing the love and care to the enormous financial responsibility that comes with being a parent, having a child is a something not to be taken lightly.   The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently reported that it will cost a middle-class family almost ¼ million dollars to raise a child born in 2009 to the age of 17.

For Arizona teens facing a pregnancy determining who the father is is an essential task.  From allowing the child to know who the biological father is to the essential need for child support payments, a paternity test can provide a definitive answer.  Whenever the outcome of a paternity test may lead to legal action it is imperative that tested individuals request a legal, or court admissible, paternity test.  These tests can be used in a court of law and are frequently performed when one or both parents are seeking child support, custody or social security payments.

Arizona Mobile DNA Testing Services, one of Arizona’s leading providers of legal paternity tests, specializes in providing these services.   The Arizona DNA testing company utilizes Chromosomal Laboratories, Inc., an AABB accredited reference laboratory, making the results admissible in all 50 states.  “Our mobile DNA paternity testing services bring testing solutions directly to the teens that need them the most,” reported Ilaiza Cochrane, President of Arizona Mobile DNA Services, LLC.
