Dear Councilwoman Mealy,

I’m currently living within your district, and I would very much appreciate your support in my effort to reduce the amount of teen pregnancies. Teen pregnancy is a major problem surrounding many teens. I believe you should assist me in reducing this issue because more teens are ending up pregnant and dropping out of school. Did you know that nearly 3 in every 10 teen girls in the United States will get pregnant at least one time before the age of 20? To solve this problem, I would like you to push for an increase in the amount of sex education classes in high school, middle school, and even make it optional for elementary schools. Our young adults need to be educated about the different types of preventions and risk factors of unprotected sex. It is very important that you help these teens by implementing such classes in our school systems. I would like you to take action as soon as possible. Unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases is a major reason for immediate attention. I would appreciate you getting back to me with a response within the next two weeks. With your support we will be able to take action faster, and in turn help to decrease the chance of unplanned teen pregnancy.
