Currently the age of consent for females to have sex in Guyana is 16 years while the age at which they become legal adults is 18. One result is an increasing among of teenage pregnancies, sometimes leading to suicide and more often than not, condemning mother and child to lives of hardship. The Caribbean Voice and its partners urge President Granger and his government to raise the age of consent to 18 as one way of tackling the teenage pregnancy and suicide rates as well as to help young women make more informed and responsible choices.
