Unplanned Pregnancies Averted

In 2010, publicly funded contraceptive services helped women prevent 2.2 million unintended pregnancies, which would have resulted in 1.1 million unplanned births, according to “Contraceptive Needs and Services, 2010.” In the absence of these services, national levels of unintended pregnancy and unplanned birth among all women would be 66% higher and 73% higher among teens. By providing women the contraception they need to avoid pregnancies they don’t want, publicly funded contraceptive services yielded savings of $10.5 billion, or $5.68 for every $1 spent.
