The Guttmacher Institute has the following statistics about abortion:
- “7% of women aged 15-44 are at risk of unwanted pregnancy but are not using contraceptives.”
- “The proportion of women who are at risk of unwanted pregnancy but not using a method increased from 5% in 1995 to 7% in 2002.”
- “One-quarter of the more than 20 million American women who obtain contraceptive services from a medical provider receive care from a publicly funded family planning clinic.”
- “Federal employees are guaranteed insurance coverage for contraception.”
