New Mexico creates teen-sex textline

NEW MEXICO - Teens in New Mexico are texting about sex. But it's not what you might think.

The state Department of Health now has a text messaging service to answer teenagers questions about sex. It's also for parents.

The service is called the BrdsNBz (birds-and-bees) hotline.

An Albuquerque television station reported that the Q-and-A is targeted at reducing the state's high teen birth rate.

Is this something that should be in Indiana?
