Funny that our generation (the sexually liberal hippie kids) knew far more about contraception and sexually transmittable diseases than modern kids do with all their internet, books, TV, sex-education at school etc. We had nothing but word-of-mouth and an occasional article in a magazine.
While I can't speak for other countries, this statement would not appear to match reality in the U.S.

Birth rates for teenage mothers hit another historic low last year in the United States, government researchers announced on Friday.

The number of babies born to teenagers was about 305,000, less than half the peak of nearly 645,000 in 1970, according to the new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
