Introduced in House (04/26/1984)

Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenthood Act of 1984 - Amends title XX (Adolescent Family Life Demonstration Projects) of the Public Health Service Act to authorize grants and projects for: (1) prenatal and postpartum care; (2) well-child infant care; (3) comprehensive family planning services to prevent unintended repeat pregnancies; and (4) educational, vocational, and other counseling services.

Gives priority to under-18 year olds where the incidence of adolescent child bearing is high, where the proportion of low income and minority families is high, and where such services are most needed.

Stresses the role of voluntary family support.

States that services provided under this Act shall be voluntary.

Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services to: (1) establish a program data reporting system; and (2) report annually to Congress.

Authorizes FY 1985 through 1987 appropriations.
