48% of pregnancies among American women are unintended; 1/2 of these are terminated by abortion.
The majority of unintended pregnancies among contraceptive users result from inconsistent or incorrect use.
More than 3 million unintended pregnancies occur every year in the United States. The 3 million women who use no contraceptives account for almost half of these pregnancies (47%), while the 39 million method
users account for 53%.
Each year, almost 1 million teenage women–10% of all women aged 15-19 and 19% of those who have had sex–become pregnant.
A sexually active teenager who does not use contraceptives has a 90% chance of becoming pregnant within one year.
Nearly 4 in 10 teen pregnancies (excluding those ending in miscarriages) are terminated by abortion. There were about 274,000 abortions among teens in 1996.
