Pregnancy Statistics

Birthmother Support

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.

Adoption is an unselfish gift of love from you to your child.
