Conservatives around the world are idiots too
The Hunter/New England region has one of the highest teenage birth rates in NSW - six per cent, compared to 1.6 per cent in northern Sydney and the central coast.
The Hunter Valley town of Merriwa is so concerned about the high rate it has asked for emergency government funding to boost health sources and sexual education.
There is little support for young mothers, and Merriwa's only pharmacy refuses to stock condoms or supply the morning-after pill.
