Survey Says: Our Story + Yours (April 2016)

Pregnancy planning in general, and the use of birth control in particular, are directly linked to a wide array of benefits to women, men, children, and society, including fewer unplanned pregnancies, more educational and economic opportunities for young women, improved maternal and infant health, greater family well-being, and reduced public spending. New nationally representative public opinion polling makes clear that the overwhelming majority of the American public sees the link between deciding if and when to get pregnant and opportunity.
