According to Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam, over 18, 000 teen girls in Malaysia get pregnant every year and seek medical supervision as well as advice in health clinis.

He stated that of the total, 25 per cent or approximately 4,500 cases were cases of out-of-wedlock pregnancies.

At the launch of ‘Generasiku Sayang’ programme by Permaisuri of Johor Raja Zarith Sofiah Sultan Idris Shah, he told reporters that there are 1, 500 cases of teen girls having abortions at any given month and over 50 cases a day

When asked about cases involving girls that had to carry out abortions from pregnancy through rape, he stated that the difference in the statistics was significantly smaller.

He announced that teenage pregnancy or early childbearing are unlikely to negatively impact a woman’s health though there are significant risks in the child having a pre-mature death.
