7:02 p.m. Update – TRENTON – Michele Torchia has spent her professional life surrounded by babies.On Tuesday she was surrounded by politicians, as one of the featured guests at Gov. Jon S. Corzine’s State of the State address.

A gynecologist/obstetrician, Torchia is director of women’s services for Community Health Care Inc. where she has made prenatal health care and teen pregnancy in Cumberland County her priorities.

Too bad with all the public money dumped into this pit there has been no positive change made in reducing the state’s highest teen pregnancy rate.

  1. Maybe that’s because the program is just getting underway, and they have to wade through the societal beliefs on teen pregnancy every time something goes into effect.
    Bash Corzine all you want, but if you’re not an expert on this program than don’t bash it simply because his name is attached in a single news article. Maybe you could do a better job of lowering the teen pregnancy rate?
