Unplanned Pregnancy Higher among Poor Women

Ad Feedback

A recent report by Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute shows the rate of unintended pregnancies in the U.S. essentially stayed the same between 2001 and 2006.

However, it revealed a large disparity between high-income and lower income women.

The rate of unintended pregnancies for women ages 15 to 44 with incomes below the poverty line rose by 50 percent in that five year period.

The study's findings were published in the journal Contraception.

Is Planned Parenthood funding effective? Eric Scheidler, with the Pro-Life Action League, talks about the meaning behind this report, on CBN News Channel Morning News, Sept. 8.
