Everyone Loves Birth Control

The National Campaign (www.thenationalcampaign.org) to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy has many resources that illustrate the need for pregnancy prevention, as well as support for these initiatives.  From the resource – ‘Support for birth control is broad and deep and almost everyone uses it. Birth control is directly linked to a wide array of benefits to women, men, children, and society, including fewer unplanned pregnancies.1 It is also the case that nearly half (45%) of all pregnancies in the U.S. are reported by women themselves as unplanned.2 The good news is unplanned pregnancy is declining for the first time in decades—the latest data show an 18% decline from 2008 to 2011. However, great disparities remain—women of color, low income women, and women with less education all have higher rates of unplanned pregnancy. 3 Unplanned pregnancy is highly preventable and the broad array of contraceptive methods available are widely supported.’
