Everyone Loves Birth Control 2018

Birth control is directly linked to a wide array of benefits to women, men, children, and society, including fewer unplanned pregnancies. It is also the case that nearly half (45%) of all pregnancies in the U.S. are reported by women themselves as unplanned. The good news is unplanned pregnancy is declining for the first time in decades, however great disparities remain—women of color, low income women, and women with less education all have higher rates of unplanned pregnancy.
