Public Opinion

There’s a lot of information—and misinformation—when it comes to sexual health and contraception. Our goal for more than 20 years has been to provide real and resonant information to help all people make informed decisions about their sexual health. We believe that it is important to regularly assess and report on public perspectives about unplanned pregnancy and related issues.

The majority of adults-- regardless of race/ethnicity, religion, and political affiliation-- believe that birth control should be considered a basic part of women's health care
When teens and women have the power to decide if and when to get pregnant and have a child, how likely are they to have healthier babies and more stable families?
80% of adults overall say teen pregnancy is an important problem compared to other social and economic problems in their community.
