159309_embarazo-adolecente-gThe Instituto Nacional de las Mujeres (INAMU) – Costa Rica’s Natioal Women’s Institute – is alarmed by the report of 400 pregnancies of girls under the age of 15 in 2011.

According to the most recent records by UNICEF, one in five pregnancies – 20% of all births – in Costa Rica in 2011, were of a teenager.

The women’s institute says the figures are alarming, evidence of quite a permissive society on the subject and considers the pregnancy of a teen under the age of 15 as rape.
