Facts the pro-life movement needs to know about abortion, freedom of conscience and the ‘pro-abortion’ crowd

MARRIED COUPLES VERY RARELY GET ABORTIONS

As far back as 2001, a study revealed that married couple are significantly less likely to get an abortion than those just living together or a woman living alone.

“Disparities in unintended pregnancy rates among subgroups persisted and in some cases increased, and women who were 18-24 years old, poor or cohabiting had rates two to three times the national rate. The unintended pregnancy rate declined notably for teens 15-17 years old. The proportion of unintended pregnancies ending in abortion decreased from 47% in 2001 to 43% in 2006, and the unintended birth rate increased from 23 to 25 per 1000 women 15-44 years old,” the study titled Unintended pregnancy in the United States: incidence and disparities, 2006 reported.

Check out the chart below for a clear illustration.

The conclusion: “Since 2001, the United States has not made progress in reducing unintended pregnancy. Rates increased for nearly all groups and remain high overall. Efforts to help women and couples plan their pregnancies, such as increasing access to effective contraceptives, should focus on groups at greatest risk for unintended pregnancy, particularly poor and cohabiting women.”
